These plates are so fun to put and leave out for Santa. You can customize and resize this project to fit on a placemat as well as on cutting boards. I will cover how to make this Cricut project on a charger plate but you can easily resize things using the instructions in my Youtube video.

HOW TO MAKE SANTA’S COOKIES PLATE
If you’d rather watch a video on how to make it step by step, take a look at this video here (highly recommended!):
STEP 1: GET THE FREE SVG FILE
Get the free SVG file from the Free Resource Library.
STEP 2: PREPARE THE FILE
This design has been sized to fit a charger plate. If you are using a placemat or a cutting board instead, you can move the design elements around to fit.
Add the name(s) underneath “Love,” but using the text tool.
Make sure you Weld the name together after you are happy with how it looks so that Cricut doesn’t cut out each letter individually.
Attach all of the layers together before you go to cut so everything the design will cut out as you’ve laid it out.
STEP 3: CUT IT OUT
Follow the prompts to cut it out. I used Premium Permanent vinyl and the premium vinyl setting on my Cricut Maker with more pressure.
STEP 3: WEED YOUR DESIGN AND APPLY TRANSFER TAPE
Carefully reverse weed your designs. Make sure you don’t accidentally weed something you aren’t supposed to.
You can reverse weed by applying the transfer tape BEFORE you weed anything. Then you remove the backing from the vinyl and weed from the back.
BE VERY CAREFUL!
This design can be difficult to weed. Be very careful you don’t weed any dots, commas, etc out by accident!
STEP 4: APPLY THE DESIGN TO THE PLATE
Put the design on top of parchment paper. Parchment paper is perfect because the vinyl will not stick to it enough that it will remove parts of your design but it will stick JUST enough to not move around.
Place your design where you’d like it. Fold one corner of the parchment paper back and stick your design down to hold it in place.
Peel the rest of the parchment paper away and carefully put your design on the plate.
Carefully remove the transfer tape.
Go over the design with a roller or burnisher to make sure the design will stick.
Yay! You did it! It might have been tougher to weed but I promise the patience has paid off!
