Step 1: Design your stamps.

I designed a handle of different designs and sizes for our Christmas gift tags. Some of the graphics I used came with the free 50 designs that come with the Mint (like the North Pole postage stamp graphic and the snow flake).

Once you get your design set, you can decide on a number of “screens” before printing. 

Step 2: Make your stamps

The Silhouette Mint instructions come with pretty detailed instruction you can follow, but the general idea is to:

  • Turn on your Silhouette Mint and plug into computer.
  • Start Mint printing in the Mint Studio.
  • Insert corrected size stamp sheet into the back of the Silhouette Mint.
  • Leave both the cardboard and the plastic liner on the top of the stamp sheet, you’ll remove these after printing.You may need to give it a very slight push so the machine grabs it and pulls it into the printer.
  • Bend the cardboard at the dotted line and peel the stamp away from both the cardboard and the plastic liner on the front.
  • Apply to the stamp block (after removing the brown liner protecting the adhesive).
  • Press stamp on gently to the block.

Step 3: Add ink to the custom stamp.

You just simply drop the ink over the stamped design by dropping it in place. After adding the ink, let it sit for at least 7 minutes to soak into the design. Stamp out extra ink of scrap paper.

Eventually you’ll start to get a clear stamp and you can move it over to where you’ll actually be stamping.

Step 4: Stamp your Christmas gift tags!

I found it easiest to stamp the whole sheet of paper and then cut around the Christmas gift tags.

You can simply use a hole punch in the gift tag to attach it to your gift.

These personalized Christmas gift tags were so easy and FUN to create on the Silhouette Mint! They add so much character to my gift wrapping and I love them way more than the store bought sticker labels.
