How to Apply Adhesive Vinyl to a Cookie Jar

  1. Download the SVG file from Design Bundles.
  2. Cut the SVG file by color using red and green vinyl. Make sure to measure your cookie jar and size your file to fit before you cut. You can follow this tutorial on how to cut by color.
  3. After your files are finished cutting, weed the excess vinyl using a weeding hook.
  4. Apply transfer tape to your weeded design. This post will show you how to use transfer tape with vinyl. This post will show you how to assemble each color onto one piece of transfer tape.
  5. Apply your SVG file to your cookie jar
    METHOD 1 – line up your file on your cookie jar and press down firmly. Burnish the file with a scraper tool or a credit card. Slowly peel the transfer tape away to reveal your finished design.
    METHOD 2 – use the hinge method to apply the vinyl to the cookie jar.

I absolutely adore how this cookie jar turned out. I love the bright red and green vinyl against the white jar. It screams classic Christmas to me. You can give this jar as a gift by itself or pair it with this cookie baking gift set and DIY pot holder for the ultimate Christmas gift.

When you get tired of sugar cookies this holiday, try some of these white chocolate peppermint pudding cookies , cornflake wreath cookies or any of these delicious Christmas cookies.
