Everyone wants their own little Baby Yoda at home and I can help you with this fun little Baby Yoda craft idea! I have two different Baby Yoda snowflake ideas for you to make. This could be a fun little project for your Star Wars fan to make over winter break or make it this weekend and add it to your Christmas tree.
Baby Yoda Snowflake Ideas
I have a confession to make, I can’t properly use scissors. Seriously, cutting a straight line is difficult for me. I almost feel like a kindergartner when I make craft projects. That’s why my projects tend to be simple and why I feel like if I can make the craft, anyone will be able too. So my first Baby Yoda snowflake idea was a simple design similar to our Baymax snowflake or Fortnite llama snowflake.

All you need to make this simple snowflake is a printer and scissors. I kept the design extra simple but you can always make a few extra cuts in along the edge for more detail. I found it easier to use a hole punch for Yoda’s eyes and then use a micro tip scissors to clean up the shape. Ready to make your own simple Baby Yoda snowflakes? Just download my template and get started!
Baby Yoda Snowflake with Cricut
I designed a more detailed Baby Yoda snowflake that can be cut using a Cricut machine. Simply upload my Yoda snowflake template into your Cricut Design Space and let your machine do it’s work. Obviously Baby Yoda in his floating carrier is pretty iconic already, but I wanted to add a little more detail to this idea because the Cricut could work it’s cutting magic.
So I add a cute little frog to each snowflake as a fun little detail. If you’ve been watching the Mandalorian on Disney+ then you will know why my Baby Yoda snowflake features a frog!

If you are new to cutting card stock with your Cricut, I recommend using an older mat or taking an old t-shirt and blotting your Cricut mat. Why, you ask? You want to make your mat less sticky, otherwise you will have a hard time peeling your paper snowflake off the mat. Does anyone want to ask me how I know? 😉
Then you can add a ribbon and hang it on your Christmas tree. Or make a few and string them up like garland or hang them from the ceiling, Baby Yodas everywhere! I’m actually tempted to find a smallish Christmas tree on sale after the holidays this year, so I can have a dedicated Star Wars Christmas tree next year. We’ve purchased quite a few Star Wars ornaments over the years and even have lightsaber Christmas lights we can add to it!
How to upload a file to Cricut Design Space
Unfortunately, when you use your own design in Cricut Design Space, you can’t directly share the project with other people. Instead, you have to share the image file. Then other people can upload the images to their own Design Space software.
New to using a Cricut machine and need help? Check out this video to learn how to upload a custom file to your design space. It’s a fairly simple process, I promise!
- Cricut Machine
- Cricut Design Space
- First find the image you want to cut. You can search images on google but you can only use them for personal use. You can't sell things if you don't own the image or rights to distribute. I usually right click to 'save as' or will take a screen shot of the image if I can't download it.
- In Design Space, click the upload button then browse your files to select the image you want to upload. You can also drag and drop the file into the upload space.
- You will now see a preview of the upload image. I generally just want cut the outline of the image, so I select simple.
- The image will upload into the "select & erase" screen. The blue and white checkered background is the transparent part of the design. You can remove addition part of the image by clicking on it. If you accidentally delete part of the image you want to keep, just click undo.
- Once you're done editing the image, select continue and then save it as a 'cut image.'
- You new image will be available in your 'uploads' section. Select it and click insert images. The design will be added to your Design Space canvas.
