It’s nearly time for the big guy to visit and we need to be ready right? My Free Cookies For Santa SVG is perfect to make A Cute Santa Tray and bottle to leave out for Santa Clause on Christmas Eve.

This is a tradition we have followed ever since the boys were born, and one that even though the boys are older, and roll their eyes at me I still do!

You can’t let the Christmas Magic die can you? This mum isn’t going down without a fight, Christmas is ageless. Although I will let you into a little secret, we leave Bailey’s out for Santa! I figure by the time he gets to our house he will need it. Also check out my Magic Key post, to get your own Magic Santa key for Christmas Eve.

Step By Step How To Make Your Santa Tray And Milk Bottle

Uploading To Cricut Design Space

Upload your Cookies For Santa SVG/PNG files to Cricut Design Space and size to fit your tray. You are better using the SVG file for this project as all the files come grouped together so can be moved. To ungroup simply select the file and click ungroup on the top on the right hand bar.

The file is all currently one colour, however if you ungroup your svg, you can move certain elements away to cut in red, I did this with the Merry Christmas and holly berries.

However before you send the project to cut YOU MUST WELD IT TOGETHER this will keep all the elements in the correct place rather than scrambling and separating them.

If your tray is a different shape you will need to ungroup your SVG and rearrange the elements to the correct shape. If you need a square, or circle, use a shape from the shape bar on the left hand side as a guide. You can discard this once you are happy. But do remember to weld together again before cutting.

When you are happy with the shape of your Cookies For Santa SVG elements weld together, size it so it fits on your tray and send to cut.

Cutting Your Santa Treat Tray SVG Design

When you send your project to cut use the permanent vinyl setting on more (I chose more as some of the cuts are intricate). If you are using a Cricut Mat use a brayer to ensure the vinyl is well adhered.

Weeding Your Cookies For Santa Tray SVG Design

Once cut, carefully weed your vinyl, this is the most time consuming part. You can either weed as one whole piece, or separate elements and build as a jigsaw on your tray.

I chose to weed as one piece, but make sure you weed out all the little bits. I find it useful to have a copy of the image closely so I can keep referring to it. Also light helps, I love my bright pad for this.

If you are using two colours keep these separate, but work on transferring the larger file first.

Once weeded cut a piece of Cricut transfer tape and carefully lay over your weeded elements, and using your scraper, transfer the images from the contact sheet to the transfer tape, ready to transfer to your tray.

Transferring Your Santa Tray SVG

Now ensure your tray surface and bottle are clean and free of dust and oil. I use a lint roller to make sure its clean. My tray was a bamboo tray which I found harder to adhere because its a bit oilier. However I did manage it, it just took a lot of patience.

Lay the transfer paper in place, now use your brayer and scraper to rub out all of the bubbles and adhere the vinyl cookies for Santa SVG to the tray. Lifting the transfer paper a bit at a time, I find it much easier to cut it off in sections as it lifts away to prevent it sticking back down.

Now you can add the red layer in the same way, once the tray is finished add the milk for Santa and star to your bottle and leave for 24 hours.
