Yesterday was my sister-in-law’s baby shower and it was so good to celebrate her and her little baba. One of the things she wanted was to send each guest home with a little something to remind them to pray, send a message or offer her support over the next few weeks. I’m all for fun party favours so I was happy with that.
We came up with a little pot plant and gift tag, which fitted in with the relaxed boho picnic vibe perfectly. Each pot plant had a palm leaf gift tag (we used a few different designs) and a tag with the name of the plant and basic care instructions behind it. We bought seedling six packs from the nursery and coconut husk plant pots. The pots look pretty and are supposed to be able to be planted directly into the ground and then biodegrade. I’ll test it out with mine and see how it goes.
One of the features of my Cricut Maker that I’ve been really enjoying is draw then cut. I’ll be honest and say I was not expecting to use it much at all, but now that I’ve started using the pen to draw, I love it! It leaves a lovely hand drawn feel on your projects, while the designs are still all drawn perfectly. I only have the Cricut fine point pen (0.4), but I have other Cricut pens on my wishlist to get soon. The colours available are beautiful!

What to do
Open my project in Cricut Design Space – https://design.cricut.com/landing/project-detail/618172b1f737b466db5077b9 or search “Palm Leaf Gift Tag” in Design Space projects.
Resize it if needed and adjust how many of the tags you’d like to cut. The project includes a label for the plant name and simple care instructions. This can be edited to include your plant’s details, or simply removed if you’d only like the palm leaf gift tags.
Allow the machine to do it’s magic and you’ll end up with “handdrawn” DIY gift tags that look professional!
