The Giving Plate with Cricut Vinyl
I love surprising people with some homemade treats. This is a super cute and easy project to give those tasty treats a way to travel. And how fun is it to know that they will then pass it on to more people. I got the clear plate at the dollar store so it was a pretty inexpensive way to show people you care.
I first measured my plate. I wanted the middle circle measurement and the outer circle measurement.
I then went to Design Space and created the 2 circles as my template.
Using this template, I created the design. If you would like the SVG of the design you can find it HERE.
Because vinyl is not food safe I mirrored my image so that I could place it on the bottom of the plate and it would be right side while looking from the top.
I cut the design out of the Smart Vinyl with my Cricut Maker 3. If you do not have the new machines you can easily do this with regular vinyl and a standard grip mat.
After it was cut out I weeded the whole design. I like to weed the innards of the letters first. This seems to be easier than waiting until the outside is off and then trying to get the little pieces out.
Using Transfer Tape I placed each part of the design onto the bottom side of the plate. I cut each segment of the design so that it would be easier to transfer. Place the Transfer Tape over the design. Burnish design on the front and back. Remove vinyl backing. Place onto plate. Burnish to the plate. Remove Transfer Tape.
Do this with each segment.
Here it is all done!
Now it is ready for some treats and giving it to some special people.
