Use this snow day SVG file to make wintery themed projects!
Oh, winter…how I love to curl up inside under a warm blanket with a book, a cup of hot chocolate and lots and lots of yummy snacks. And to be clear….the calories from those snacks do not count. Not one bit. Because when you’re snowed in, every rule goes out the window. To get you through the cold winter days, I created this cute snow day SVG file “Snow Day Calories Don’t Count”. Put it on a shirt, on a mug…wherever you need to put it to remind yourself that it is ok to cheat a little on the cold blustery days. In addition to this winter SVG file, I’m sharing MORE snow-themed SVG files from some of my amazing and talented designer friends.

HOW TO MAKE A MUG WITH VINYL
- Download the snow day SVG file. The SVG file is located in the resource library which is available to my email subscribers.
- Cut out the snow day SVG file onto adhesive vinyl. If you want your design to look like mine, you’ll need to cut multiple colors of vinyl.
- Weed the excess vinyl from your design.
- Line up the vinyl pieces on to one piece of transfer tape using this method to layer vinyl
- Use the hinge method to apply the vinyl to the mug.
This file can be used with so many more things in addition to mugs. You can use it with heat transfer vinyl and create a fun pot holder gift. Or you can use it to create a custom wood sign to add to your holiday decor. If you make a project using this file, I’d love for you to post it and tag me @kellylcreates so I can see your beautiful work!
SVG FILE FAQs

STUDIO files are specific to Silhouette. You can also use PNG files with Silhouette Basic Edition but you’ll have to first convert the PNG to a cut file.
Can this file be used with a Cricut? Yes. Any SVG file can be used in Cricut Design Space.
How do I cut out this SVG using multiple colors? If you would like to use multiple colors of vinyl, you can cut by color in the Silhouette software. Cutting by color allows you to cut each color separately and layer the pieces on the final project.
