Free Nutcracker SVG Alphabet And Numbers For Christmas Crafting

My Nutcracker SVG Alphabet and Number set has to be my last Christmas Alphabet of the year, I said that last week I know! However this is a special alphabet, a collaboration with my dear friend Donna from Like Love Do. We have been friends for well over 20 years, have a successful Cruise blog together, and are both craft obsessed. Thus it seemed fitting to create a project together.

This alphabet is perfect so many different Christmas crafts, cards and scrapbooking layouts. However paired with Donna’s master files of the Nutcracker you can do so much more. It’s also great for cutting on you Cricut and making porch signs and Christmas wreaths.

Or indeed printing with Glowforge for treat plates or hanging Christmas decorations. Its exciting what you can make with this cute Nutcracker SVG and PNG set. If you scroll down I have included a tutorial to make a Santa Stop Here sign using a cork place mat and iron on vinyl that fits perfectly into a door wreath for Christmas Eve.

How to make a Santa Stop Here Sign With Iron on Vinyl

Create Your Files In Cricut Design Space

Start by uploading the Nutcracker letter S to Cricut Design Space, I also used the present and drum you can get these from Donna’s site.

Once uploaded, grab a circle from the shapes bar on the left, now size this to the size of your cork mat. This will be your guide.

Select the letter S and duplicate it, once duplicated remove all contours on one of the letters, you can do this by selecting the letter and clicking contour on the bottom right hand corner. This will create a back layer for your letter S.

Now add your text, I chose a swirly Cricut font for the Santa and a square font for for Please Stop Here. Then add any elements to decorate your Santa Stop Here Sign.

layer and build all your elements in design space, using a circle as a guide, you can remove this after

Cutting Your Nutcracker SVG Letters And Images In Iron On Vinyl

When you send your Nutcracker letters and images to cut, ensure you use your brayer to roll the the vinyl to adhere to the mat, also remember to mirror your images before sending to cut. But remember if you are cutting several layers or colours, organise your colours before you send the project to cut.

If your cutting mat looses its stickiness this will affect the quality of cut. Also make sure your mat is in good condition, this is vital for cutting intricate cuts.

Additionally, set the material and cut pressure correctly to match whatever materials you’re cutting, in this case glitter vinyl to guarantee a clean cut, I set my pressure on more because there is a lot of detail in the cut. If you have any problems cutting check the mat, pressure and material settings, as generally this is where the problem will lie.

Weed And Iron Your Design Onto The Cork Mat

Weed your design and iron the base later of your letter onto the cork mat. Check the Cricut Heat Guide to get the exact heat you need, for this project I used 305f for 30 seconds.

Add the contour layer as a base onto the cork and use the heatpress to ahere

Now add the next layer of your letter S once this is in place you can start to add the rest of the layers.

Add the top layer of your letter

Arrange your elements making sure there is no overlapping and this will affect transfer. However before you put the heat press on, re cover the letter S to prevent burning it.

Lastly using a pointed tool make a hole in the top of the mat and thread string through, this is to hang your sign. you can add ribbon and bow and use as a stand alone sign.

Or add it to the centre of your door wreath like I have. If you are doing this be mindful of how exposed the the elements it will be, you way need to give it a coat of protective glue.

How To Clean Your Cricut Cutting Mat?

I find using warm soapy water and a wet wipe works really well. Simply lather up on the mat, then scrape off any debris and leave to air dry.

  1. Do you have another form of zip for this one by chance (the nutcracker)? Every time I download this and try to extract it, it says pathname is too long and I am unable to change it to work. Thank you!
