Santa is coming and this 3D Santa Sleigh is perfect for holding Christmas candy, decorations, or perhaps an elf! This fun design I cut on 100lb. cardstock which makes the sleigh fairly sturdy. If you don’t have heavyweight paper, you can cut with thinner paper, just know it will not hold as much weight. I have included a full instruction video below.

I don’t mind if you use these designs for personal or small business commercial use up to 200 items, but please do not re-sell or re-distribute the files. I’d ask that you direct your crafty friends here to download the files themselves.  Also, I don’t allow my designs to be used in print-on-demand shops or on transfers that will be sold.

The red and white sleigh on the left was cut using 65lb. cardstock and the decorative drawing with a red Cricut pen. See the material list below for the information on the red sleigh on the right.

HOW TO CUT AND ASSEMBLE 3D SANTA SLEIGH

The video below describes the entire Cricut set up and assembling the sleigh in detail.

MATERIALS NEEDED FOR 3D SANTA SLEIGH

Clear Path Paper from Amazon. This paper cuts beautifully and comes in a large variety of colors.

Once you’ve downloaded the free 3D Santa Sleigh SVG, unzip the download folder and upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space.

The sleigh will upload to Cricut Design Space in the same size of the sleighs in the photos. If you’d like to resize the design, it’s best to do so while the file is still grouped.

To set up the foil (or draw) select the decorative line that is paired with the side of the sleigh, go to linetype and change it to foil (or draw).

Once the linetype has been changed, select both the foil/draw and the side of the sleigh by pressing shift to select both and then click attach near the bottom of the layers panel.

The sleigh is simple to cut and full assembly directions can be viewed on the video above or on my YouTube Channel.

  1. This is beautiful. I want to make it go with my Christmas tree but when I open it on my Cricut and I’m getting to cut, my machine tells me that this window is open on a different device. Do you know if I need to do something different. I have cancel this project and open other projects and it works well. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    1. I’ve not heard of an issue such as this. You may want to try completely closing Cricut Design Space and then reopen and make sure you’ve uploaded the SVG format.

  2. What kind of foil did you use for this to draw the line on the side of the sleigh. you don’t have that in your list

  3. I just wanted to let you know I love this sleigh! I have made 3 so far and plan on making a few more to give as gifts. Your tutorial on YouTube is excellent! and I was able to follow, it was very easy and you did an great job.

  4. This is perfect for my kids elfs to sit in on christmas eve and wait for santa!!

  5. I Love your website. I have made the layered angel (6 actually) and will be making the sleigh as well. I give these as gifts at Christmas to the PSW’s at the nursing home where my mother in law currently is.
