This fun Giving Plate makes the best gift especially when it’s filled with delicious baked goods! Use the FREE cut files to create your own giving plates and pass it along to family and friends for a fun gift that’s meant to be re-gifted.
We are always having dinner with our friends and family and, of course, we are always taking some kind of sweet treat or appetizer with us so I finally used my Cricut to make a Giving Plate.
Isn’t it the cutest?! I love the idea of passing along a simple gift with the food that we take when invited to someone’s house.
What is a Giving Plate?
Have you heard of the Giving Plate? The Giving Plate is a plate that has no owner. You use it to take food to a friend or family member but you don’t take the plate back. It is then used by that person to take food to someone else. The idea is that the plate circles around to people spreading love and lots of goodies.
This is something that I’ve wanted to make for a few months now and I’m so excited that I finally made one. The only problem is that I need to make more! It’s a good thing that plates are so inexpensive because I want to make one for get-together and party we get invited to.
Supplies needed to Make a Giving Plate
- Blank Plate – I found mine at the dollar store
- Transfer Tape
- Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker
- Cricut Cutting Mat
- Weeding Tool
- Giving Plate SVG Cut File – Circle / Square
I also created an SVG cut file for square plates and platters. This way you can make a square giving plate or a circle one – or make two which is what I would recommend. I’m thinking that we can never have too many giving plates.
I hope you love these free cut files as much as I do. And, if you’re looking for more cut files, I’ve got a fabulous collection. Check them out HERE. I’m always adding more so make sure you come back often.
Love this and will make and give to friends
How do you wash these plates with vinyl on them? Do you send instructions along with the plate somehow? Is the vinyl food-safe? Sorry so many questions. We’ve been hoping to do these for a while now and every idea we see is either not food-safe or non-washable, etc.
Wanted to echo what Megan asked above and also ask if this file could be used “commercially” (as in for a child to sell the plates at a children’s business fair)? Thanks!
Can you please advise what font this is wrote in?
Wondering the same! This is perfect! Can it be used commercially?
Hi Kara! Love the giving plate idea but am wondering if you need to somehow seal the finished product so that it can be washed. Thanks in advance.
