Craftey + Simply Alison - Spring Planter Oracal 651 - Main

The week on the blog, Alison from Simply Alison is showing you how to make 2 sweet planters that are perfect for spring! She's using our Oracal 651 and TWO free hand-lettered SVG cut files that she created exclusively YOU! For more project ideas and inspiration, be sure to check out the Craftey Community!

This month has proved to be more difficult than we all thought. While a lot of us can only think about the state of the world, I wanted to bring some light and fun to your day. Let’s take your mind off everything going on... if only for 10 minutes.

Spring is just around the corner. When I think of spring, I think of flowers. So I grabbed this cute flower pot at target and just had to spice it up with some lettering and my Cricut! I made TWO different SVG cut files for you to choose from. Or you could be extra like me and place one on each side 😉. If you don’t have a flower pot you could use this SVG file for a shirt, bag or anything you would like.

Step 1:

Upload the cut file(s) onto Cricut design space. Measure your pot and adjust the lettering to fit the pot. I adjusted my height to be 2.8 and it resized the width by itself.

Step 2:

I highlighted all of the lettering and under the ‘actions’ tab I pressed attach. That attaches all the lettering so it doesn’t get jumbled when you go to cut it.

Step 3:

Place the permanent vinyl on the cutting mat and cut the free SVG cut file(s).

  • I love this planter and svg, it is so cute! I was just wondering how to access the cut file; is it still available? When I click the link it tells me the community is not available and to contact the community member. Thanks for your help! :)
