Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of year and we are celebrating it by expressing gratitude to our faithful customers with free SVG download designs. Our lead designer, Aaron Meyers, has some fresh new ideas for this fall holiday. He’s come up with (1) Thanksgiving football jersey project, and (1) Thanksgiving tree home decor project.
For the best results with heat transfer projects, try the new Cricut EasyPress machine.
In case you have never used an SVG file, they work with electronic die-cutters, like the Silhouette CAMEO 3 and the Explore Air 2. It’s as simple as uploading the file to your machine, loading the material, and then waiting as the machine quickly does all the work. Here are the designs (scroll to the bottom of the post for the download links):
Above is the design concept for our Turkey Bowl football jerseys. We made 4 team logos, numbers for the back of the jersey, and also 3 team names. We figure many of you will probably want to come up with your own names with your preferred font, but at least we gave you a few ideas for team monikers. These are broken up into 3 different SVG files that look like this:
These designs are broken up into four downloadable files. From left to right and top-down, these are called Turkey Bowl Football Logo, Turkey Bowl Trophy Logo, Turkey Bowl Foam Finger Logo, and Turkey Bowl Pie Logo.
These are all found in one file called Turkey Bowl Jersey Phrases. These would typically go at the top of the front or the back of the jersey. To do it like the pros, put the team name on the front, then put last names above the numbers on the back.
And these are the Turkey Bowl Jersey Numbers. You’re going to need some material for this project, so save on heat transfer paper here at CraftDirect, and while you’re at it, take a gander at the helpful infographic we made in this how to use Iron-on tutorial.
Last, but not least we have this interesting Thankful Tree project. It’s divided into two files: the Thankful Tree and the Thankful Tree Leaves. The vision here is that you would make the trunk and branches of the tree with vinyl and then make the leaves out of colored cardstock. You can write what you are thankful for on the backs of the leaves and then adhere them to the tree (check out Sticky Thumb for awesome glues and adhesives). It is one of Aaron’s family’s favorite Thanksgiving traditions, which they do at dinner. We thought it would also be fun to do it sort of like an advent calendar and have a family member add something they are thankful for, every day.
Enjoy Your Thanksgiving Projects
If you love these projects, please share this blog post with your friends on social media. How fun would it be to show up to your Turkey Bowl with both teams in matching jerseys! Start a new family tradition with your own Thankful Tree this year. It’s a great way to keep your November positive and focused on the great things in life.
