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
- 100 lb Cardstock – I used Clear Path Paper in Cherry Red from Amazon. This heavyweight cardstock cuts smooth.
- Gold Mirror Cardstock
- Art Glitter Glue – Don’t let the name deceive you, this glue has no glitter. You can purchase the precision tip. It’s the best for intricate paper projects.
- Cricut Foil Transfer Kit
- Standard Grip Mat (green)
- Cricut Maker – or your favorite cutting machine.
- Design #101 – 3D Santa Sleigh SVG – The free SVG cut file (available in my freebie vault—get the password at the bottom of this post).
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.
New to Cricut and need help on how to upload these designs to your Cricut machine? My How to Upload SVG Files In Cricut Design Space post will provide step by step directions how-to upload SVGs to 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.
