Use your Cricut or Silhouette with this set of four Christmas SVG files to create Christmas ornaments, decorations, signs and more!
Do you know I love my Cricut Maker? I mean, it is one amazing cutting machine and I couldn’t be more pleased with all the things I’ve made with it and am so looking forward to many more craft projects.
My first Cricut cutting machine was the Cricut Explore Air (it has been discontinued and is no longer supported by Cricut). I have cut so many things on my Explore Air, like:
- clocks for each of our seven children
- Masonic logo clocks
- wood signs
- our large wedding vow wood signs
- Christmas ornaments
- custom wood signs
- wreath signs
- birthday cards
- gift boxes
- paper flowers
- reverse canvas
- door signs
- sewing patterns
- iron-on for t-shirts
- wooden initial signs
- coffee mugs
- travel mugs
You get the idea! So, enough about all the things I’ve made with my Cricut and on to what you can make with this set of four Christmas SVG files.
Four Christmas SVG Files
This is a set of four Christmas themed SVG files that read:
- Merry & Bright
- Home Sweet Home
- Let It Snow
- 90°N Santa 135°W (coordinates for Santa at the North Pole)
SVG #1: Merry & Bright
The first SVG Christmas file in this collection reads “Merry & Bright”.
SVG #2: Home Sweet Home
The second SVG Christmas file in this collection reads “Home Sweet Home”.
SVG #3: Let It Snow
And the third SVG Christmas file in this collection reads “Let It Snow”. Obviously, you could use this SVG file all winter long – well, to be honest, all year long!
SVG #4: 90°N Santa 135°W
And, finally, the fourth SVG Christmas file in this collection reads “90°N Santa 135°W”, which just so happens to be the coordinates for the North Pole.

How to Use the Christmas SVG Files
Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped your cut files, they are ready to be uploaded to Cricut Design Space (or Silhouette Studio or your Brother ScanNCut2). Follow your normal or manufacturers procedures for uploading images for use with your cutting machine.
How to Upload SVG Files to Cricut Design Space
Uploading files to Cricut Design Space couldn’t be easier.
1 – Launch Cricut Design Space from your computer
2 – Start a New Project
Start a new project simply by clicking on the New Project link on the Design Space home page.
Once you click on New Project, you may receive the following message:
“A project already exists on the Canvas with unsaved changes. Do you wish to save your previous project or replace it with this new project?” Simply answer this question.
3 – Upload Image
Click on the Upload icon on the bottom left.
This will take you to the Upload page. Click on the Upload Image button.
Then you can Browse to your file location by clicking on the Browse button or drag and drop your image file. Note that images can only be uploaded one at a time.
Click on the file you want to upload (in the below image, I’ve selected the Let it Snow image). The name of the file will appear in the File name field. Then click on Open.
The image is uploaded to Design Space and is ready to be saved.
Step 4 – Save Image as Cut File
Add any tags in the Tags field. This will help you to identify files and search for them by the tags later on. Like next year. You can also rename your image, if you want. Then simply click on the Save button
The file has now been saved and is ready to be used.
How to Upload SVG Files to Silhouette Studio
I do not have a Silhouette cutting machine, so I’m afraid I’m not much help. But, I have downloaded the free version of Silhouette Studio and what I do know is that you cannot upload SVG files with the free version.
If you fast forward the below video to 17:54 (17 minutes and 54 seconds), you can watch a tutorial from Jennifer Maker on how to upload SVG files to Silhouette.
