How to use Arabesque tiles from chipboard for Cricut or Silhouette

This is how you make your own Arabesque tiles from Chipboard. It’s an easy and fun project, that you can customize any way you like. Adding family names and the year to one side is a great idea to make a keepsake ornament.

You can get the SVG file I use CLICK --> HERE It includes both the arabesque tile base, and 3 boarder options.

The first thing you will want to do is cover a sheet of lightweight chipboard (or even an empty cereal box will work) with self adhesive vinyl. It’s important that you choose a vinyl that can base layer. I like to use either a holographic or Styletech glitter (styletech is a brand of glitter self adhesive that is completely smooth, and can be used as a base layer).


Next you will cut the base layer of the arabesque file linked above out of your vinyl covered chipboard, cut your boarder layer, and your text or design layer out as well (I like to use white 651 for the boarder). You can find the reindeer names set that I used on the main image for this tutorial CLICK --> HERE

Transfer your boarder layer to your base, Then transfer your text or design layer on top of that.


Thats really all there is to it. Super simple, fun project, using materials you probably already have on hand. Lots of fun ways to make this your own. The kids can write a sentiment about the year on the back, maybe do a print then cut family picture for one side. The only limit is your imagination. Have fun!
