How to create the Christmas Tree Serving Board
Apply a thin layer of mod podge to your board and let it dry for about 20 minutes.
Open Cricut Design Space (or another cutting program), upload your design and resize as needed for your project.
If you need some help on how to use Cricut Design Space, and how to upload a design, check out Creative Fabrica’s Cricut Guides.
To make sure that the design fits perfectly on the board, take a photo of the board, upload it into Design Space, remove the background and measure the board to get a rough estimate, and then size the design to fit the board.
Then, cut the design out of the vinyl using your Cricut Machine or another die-cutting machine.
Apply Transfer tape to all cut designs.
Arrange the first layer of the design and apply it to the board. Use the scraper to make sure the vinyl sticks to the board.
Continue this process with all the other layers, being careful to apply the layers in the correct order. For example, the light brown for the cookie base needs to be applied before the dark brown chocolate chip bits.
Once all layers are done, then you are finished! Sit back, relax and admire your wonderful creation!
