How To Make A Gingerbread Treat Plate?
It is super easy to make a Gingerbread Christmas treat plate, you simple need a plate, I picked this red one up from Home Bargains for a couple of pounds and white permanent vinyl.
Start by uploading your chosen letters to design space and duplicating them, I went for Merry and C in my Gingerbread alphabet and chose a swirly text to finish off Christmas.
Next size your plate and select a circle in shapes, size the circle to the same size as your plate and use this as your guide. Also consider the depth of the plate lip. If you are using text use the text curve tool to curve and size your text.
Cutting Your Gingerbread SVG Alphabet
When you send your Gingerbread letters and images to cut, ensure you use your brayer to roll the the vinyl to adhere to the mat, or use smart vinyl that requires no mat. Movement will affect the cut. Also 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 permanent vinyl to guarantee a clean cut. If you have any problems cutting check the mat, pressure and material settings as generally this is where the problem will lie.
How To Create Your Gingerbread SVG Treat Plate
Start by weeding your letters, take care with the eyes and buttons good light and tweezers help to get the small bits of vinyl. Once weeded use transfer tape to transfer the letters from the backing. I find using the Cricut scraper tool helps with this, it can be tricky so be patient. If the letters are not coming away from the backing, roll the backing back down and give it a rub with your scraper before re trying.
Now use a wipe or lint roller to remove any grease or debris from the plate and re transfer your letters onto the plate, ensuring you get the sizing right. Once transferred, ensure the letters are well adhered.
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 scape off any debris and leave to air dry.
