It’s summer, and there is no better time to set sail on a new adventure! I’ve got just what you need to shove off. Use my latest template to make seaworthy, and super cute, die cut sailboats!

A couple weeks ago, we went on a family road trip to the Redwoods and the Oregon Coast. Everything was so beautiful, and we had a wonderful time! Of course, missing a few 100° days here in Utah was a pretty nice perk too.

We spent some time in Newport, Oregon, and enjoyed going to the beach, seeing sea lions, and hanging out at the harbor. It’s not too often that you get a chance to see boats like these where we live!

This lovely design was picked by my wonderful patrons! Each month, my Patreon subscribers help me choose a couple of the projects I create, and this design was one of the top picks for June.

If you enjoy my work, and would like to help choose future projects/freebies, consider becoming a patron of Designs By Miss Mandee!

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the die cut sailboat pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.


2. Layer your small sail pieces together and add any decorative embellishments you’d like to the body of your boat.

Cut your kabob sticks to the size you want. I cut the longer one to 4″ and the shorter one to 2″. Attach the flag to the top of the longer stick.

Add some hot glue to the edge of the smaller sail, and attach it to the longer stick, below the flag. Then, glue on the crossbeam and attach the larger sail, allowing it to bend in the middle.


3. Fold the body section of the boat along with the tabs. Glue the tabs to the inside.

Attach the little piece with the hole to the center of the boat by gluing the two tabs to the inside walls.

Put the bottom of the kabob stick through the hole, and glue it to the bottom of the boat. Finally, add a little bit of string or baker’s twine to finish off your sailboat!

I am really proud of how these little boats turned out! This is definitely one of those projects that crafters of all ages can enjoy.

I designed these to be pretty small (about 4″x4″), but you can easily scale them up in your cutting machine software if you’d like to make a bigger boat!

    Thanks so much Mandee! The sailing boats look adorable!! I recently purchased a Cricut Maker machinel I am just having extreme diffiuclty finding decent books of solid colours of cardstock and am truly feeling despond as I am truly wanting to start making things with my Cricut. Living in Australia can actually be very limiting when you want to purchase products for a special project-I kid you not! Cheers anyway Mandee and stay well and safe. Best regards from Michele Unsworth

      I’m glad you like them Michele! Sorry to hear that you are having trouble finding a good mix of paper. I’m definitely no expert in where to get the best paper in Australia, but I wish you good luck!! It’s something I definitely hoard, and hit a lot of different stores in order to keep my supply up.

    What a sweet design! I love watching the sail boats glide by in the summer. A set of these in bright cheerful colours to set on a shelf or a pretty mobile to sail in the breeze. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
