I designed this cookie plate with the design on the rim, to keep it safe for food. This also makes it easier to wash.
If you want to make a temporary plate, use removable vinyl, but if you want to use it every year, use permanent vinyl.
How to Make a “Cookies for Santa” Plate
- Large Round Plate
- Cricut (I used my Cricut Maker 3)
- Permanent Vinyl in Red and Green
- Weeding Tools
- Transfer Tape
- Rubbing Alcohol
- SVG (The link is at the bottom of this post)
- Upload the design.
- Measure your plate and resize the design if necessary. The plate I used was 10.68″. (You can test this by creating a circle under the design and resizing it until it fits. Be sure to measure the rim as well.)
- Attach the elements that you want to keep together. For instance, I attached each set of letters, the berries, and the leaves.
- Cut the design as usual.
- Weed the cut vinyl.
- Cut apart the design if needed.
- Apply transfer tape to the weeded design.
- Clean the plate with rubbing alcohol. This removes any oils from your fingers.
- Use transfer tape to apply a set of leaves.
- Then apply one set of “cookies for Santa”. I did the top set first, making sure it was centered.
- Smooth the vinyl as you go to make sure that there are no bubbles.
- Apply the other set of leaves.
- Then apply the other set of words.
- Finally, apply the berries.
If you have trouble getting the words on the plate, cut them apart and manually space them out. I let the top edge stick to the plate and worked the vinyl toward the center of the plate as I went.
Due to the nature of vinyl, this plate will need to be hand-washed. Do not microwave.
I have a matching Santa mug coming soon!
