Here are some tips for you which I hope will help to enjoy the process. You’ll need some time on your hands to cut and cross stitch these tags but I assure you it totally worth your efforts!
If you want to resize these cut files, please bear in mind that the holes will become larger and you will need to use thicker embroidery floss or a knitting yarn. And vice versa if you decide to shrink them.
I recommend to cut the parts with the cross stitching holes with 2 passes (especially if your blades are quite old) and on paper 180-200 gsm. It will be easier for you to cross stitch on the thick paper. If you don’t have the cardstock you can cut those parts twice and layer them together.
To look for the small embroidery patterns try these search words:
- pixel art
- tiny cross stitch
- pyssla patterns

This tip is particularly helpful if you like me are not an embroiderer. Draw the pattern on the paper with colour pencils first. This will guide you and save some time and your eyesight.
And as bonus I’ve designed a snowman and bells patterns. Feel free to use them.
I will add some more my patterns a bit later.
Cut. Stitch. Enjoy!
