I did it!! I finally created a vinyl project! I've had rolls of vinyl for two years, and I have never gotten around to creating anything with it. Shame on me because it was the easiest project I've ever done! I was so nervous and I watched a lot of tutorials. Not only was it easy, but it was fast!
This is what I'm doing for my kids' teachers. I found the cups at Walmart and the buckets at Dollar Tree. The clipboards were recently picked up from Office Depot. As a former teacher, I know teachers love little personalized gifts like these! See below for specific sizes and cartridges used.
For the clipboards:
I started by welding their names with my Gypsy. I used Lyrical Letters. It has the cutest fonts!
This is what it looked like after weeding (peeling) off the vinyl.
Peel backing off transfer tape.
Place transfer tape sticky side down. Now you need to burnish it to get it to stick to the transfer tape. I used my bone folder, but you could use a credit card too.
Now peel it making sure it is sticking to the transfer tape. If it doesn't stick, just burnish it some more.
It will be backwards.
Place it where you want it. I went ahead and used my bone folder to make sure there were no air bubbles before I peeled off the transfer tape.
For the cups:
I used a couple of different cartridges for these fonts on the cups.
Storybook cartridge for the "B" and "T"
"B" cut at 3.94 in.
"T" cut at 3.82 in.
Gypsy Font for the "M"
Another great font!!
Cut at 3 in.
This was the Lyrical Letters -Loop Dee Loo font cut at 4.79 in.
Overall, this was a super easy project! I can't wait to do some more vinyl creations!
