HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
STEP 1: DOWNLOAD THE FREE SVG FILE
The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project. I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library. These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others. This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Tis the Season BA1815. It will be listed under the Craftmas 2021 Category-Day 10.
STEP 2: CUT AND WEED VINYL DESIGN
Open the design in your software program and resize it to fit on your charger plate. The inside area of my charger measured about 8.5″, so I made the design about 7″ wide. I used a buffalo plaid adhesive vinyl for this project
When everything is finished cutting, remove the vinyl from your cutting mat and trim off any unused vinyl.
Weed away the excess vinyl from around the design.
Use the weeding tool to help remove the excess vinyl from inside the letters and shapes.
Cut a piece of transfer tape and place it sticky side up on your surface. Then place the vinyl on top of the transfer tape and smooth it down.
Rub over the design firmly with your scraper tool.
Then, trim off the excess transfer tape and vinyl backing.
Now that the vinyl is ready to go we can apply it to the charger plate.
STEP 3: APPLY VINYL TO CHARGER
Flip over the vinyl and pull off the backing.
Position the design on the charger. You can use a ruler to make sure it’s straight and centered, but I just eyed it.
Rub over the design with your scraper.
Then, pull off the transfer tape.
STEP 4: ADD CHRISTMAS EMBELLISHMENTS TO THE CHARGER
The charger looks great like this, but if you want to dress it up up bit, you can glue on a decorative bow and Christmas embellishments.
I made a bow out of some matching buffalo plaid ribbon.
Then, I glued on some Christmas berries to complete the look.
And that’s it, this project is finished. I love how it turned out and I love how quick and easy it was to make!
