Gift Card Holder: Santa Going Down The Chimney and Hot Chocolate SVG Files

Do you need some gift card holders for the holiday season? I wanted to create some different fun gift card holders for Christmas. I made a Santa going down the chimney and a hot cocoa cup that you can make with the help of your Cricut.

These gift card holders should fit any standard gift cards. However, sometimes Cricut Design Space doesn’t upload SVG Files in the correct size.

Santa Going Down the Chimney Gift Card Holder

Materials

  • 2 Sheets of Red Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of Black Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of Light Brown/Kraft Brown Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of White Glitter Cardstock
  • Glue
  • Foam Glue Dots/Strips

Tools

  • Cricut Maker or. your favorite cutting machine
  • Brayer
  • Standard Cutting Mat (Green)
  • Weeding Tool

Instructions

Step 1. Cutting Out the Santa Going Down the Chimney Gift Card

upload the SVG file

There will be three (3) different mats for this ornament.

Then click on the Make It button
The prepare screen will appear


Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the gold Cardstock I used is foil cardstock weight, you will need to select "Foil Cardstock Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
