The Giving Plate SVG Cut File on Plate - GIve the gift that keeps on giving with this awesome giving plate tutorial.

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

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. I Love this and really want to make it – but – I have tired three times to download the SVG cut file and I can’t get it to upload into my Cricut Design Space. It’s a Web file and I don’t see where to unzip it or anything. I have downloaded files before and converted them so I can use them but this one is proving impossible for me. Any tips or instructions would be greatly appreciated!
