Check out these amazing Cricut tiles you can make for new babies, weddings, birthdays, etc with a full step by step tutorial!
Hi Friends! Where are all the Cricut fans?? Me, Me, Me!!
I love using my Cricut cutting machine because there are so many things you can make with it. It has saved me so much money because there are so many great Cricut gift ideas that you can make.
My kids always know their friends are getting some kind of personalized gift. Personalized gifts mean so much to the recipient and you can make one easier than you think.
One of my favorite Cricut gift ideas is making personalized tiles by adding Cricut vinyl on a ceramic tile. These can be made for any occasion and are a great gift for weddings, babies, new house, decor, etc..
They are easy to make so I thought I’d do a tutorial on applying vinyl to a tile. If you’ve read any of my other posts, you know that I love my Cricut Explore Air machine. This machine is amazing and can do so much.
I use it on a daily basis in making all of my projects. If you don’t have one, I highly suggest making the splurge or maybe hinting at it for a birthday or Christmas present!!

Personalized Cricut Tile Tutorial
The first thing you’ll want to do is design what you want to put on the tile and then cut it out with your cutting machine. Once it’s cut, weed the extra vinyl off.
Pull the vinyl up so that the wording is left. Pull up (weed out) the little parts inside the letters with a weeding tool. Lay transfer paper on top of words and use a Cricut Scraper or credit card to adhere vinyl to transfer paper.
Clean the tile with rubbing alcohol. This helps get off any grease or debris that could prevent the vinyl from sticking to the ceramic tile.
Line up the vinyl where you want it and secure it with painter’s tape (this is called the hinge method).
Flip up and pull the white paper off the back of the vinyl.
Flip the paper forward and use a scraper or credit card to smooth vinyl onto the tile.
Slowly pull off the transfer tape and press the vinyl down with a finger to make sure nice and stuck.
Do the same thing with all other vinyl strips. I line it up by putting a ruler against an object on the side to make letters straight. Tape it down and repeat!
Here are the finished Cricut tile projects! You can add a bow or anything to spruce it up. What would you put on a tile?
