Instructions:

First choose a simple design – you don’t want anything too complex. I used this very basic snowflake from my Ultimate Christmas SVG Bundle but you can use any design you like! Upload your SVG file to Cricut Design Space. Make proper adjustments according to your mug’s size.

Click “Make it”, “Continue” and then adjust your dial or setting to the custom Acetate setting.

Cut and weed snowflake stencil. Be sure to clean your stencil before using it on your drink!

Prepare hot cocoa to your liking. Top with whipped cream. Then, smooth the whipped cream with the back of a spoon to create a flat surface.

Place the newly-cut stencil over your mug.

Place cocoa powder in hand sifter and shake over the stencil.

Notes:

If the acetate setting to you, you can select the Custom Setting, and then under the plastic category select “Transparent”. Then edit the settings to 310 for the cut pressure, and 2x for the multi-cut.

For best results, the stencil should rest very close to the whipped cream, but should not be touching.
