Free Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder


When the Holiday season comes around it’s time to break out the good china, silverware and cloth napkins. It was always Grandma’s unwritten and silent rule that the table has to look picturesque, perfect and great. And growing up my mom definitely strived to make that look. Our table was filled with different serving dishes, extra silverware, salad and dinner plates, cups and saucers, and cloth napkins with napkin holders. Well here for you is a FREE Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder SVG cut file. This design is perfect for paper crafters. You can use your regular cardstock to cut this svg on your Cricut, Silhouette or other cutting machine. And don’t worry, if you’re not using the cloth napkins for the Holiday, you can still craft and use this napkin holder; just use paper napkins. Read below to find your written tutorial and video assembly. Happy crafting!

-Materials List

  • I am using my Cricut Explore. You could use your Cricut Maker or another similar cutting machine.
  • 12in x 24in Cricut Light Grip Cutting Mat
  • Cricut Scoring Wheel or Stylus
  • One (1) sheet of 8.5in x 11in cardstock in brown (turkey back and front)
  • One (1) sheet of 6in x 6in cardstock in burgundy, yellow and dark orange (feathers)
  • A scrap or One (1) sheet of 6in x 6in cardstock in white, black, bright orange and red (eyes, gobbler, beak)
  • Glue. I am using Art Glitter Glue.
  • Cricut Brayer


Step 1: Download the Free Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder SVG

Download the SVG file in my free Resource Library HERE. You can get the password for my library by filling out the form at the bottom of this post.

Save the downloaded zipped folder on your computer. Pay attention to where on your computer the folder downloads and then unzip the folder to extract the contents. The folder and files must be unzipped (extracted) before you can upload the SVG file into your cutting software.

Step 2: Upload the Free Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder SVG File into Design Space

Upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space. The SVG file will upload grouped together. Due to the new Design Space changes you will see that the ungroup button has changed and is now an icon. Click the icon ONCE to ungroup the design from itself.

Step 3: Rearrange the File Elements and Attach to the Mat

Start by moving and rearranging the elements of the file on your canvas. Align the pieces according to similar colors. Once you have them arranged to your liking, take note of their positions. Then arrange, on your Light Grip Cutting Mat, your pieces of cardstock to match the arrangement of the pieces on your canvas screen. After you have arranged your mat to match your canvas, select all the pieces by dragging a box around them, right-click inside the box and scroll to select ATTACH. Then select Make It in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 4: Mat Preview

After clicking Make It, a new window will open with your mat preview. Your new screen will show that you will need to use a 12in x 24in mat. Click OK. Double check the arrangement of the elements on your mat and your screen. Also check the operation that your machine will complete by looking for Basic Cut on the left side of your screen. Once you have completed this, click continue.

Step 5: Cardstock Cut Settings

Once you have clicked continue, a new window will open with your Cardstock Cut Settings. For this entire project I will be using the Cardstock Medium 80lb setting. Again, double check that your machine will cut by looking at the operation on the left side of your screen. Use your Cricut Brayer to secure your cardstock to the mat. Load your machine with your 12in x 24in mat. Click ok/go to begin your cut.

Step 6: Assemble the Free Thanksgiving Turkey Napkin Holder SVG Design!

Yay! That’s it! We have come to the end of cutting and it’s time to assemble the holder. Be sure to watch this short video of the assembly. Happy Crafting!!
