MONDAY MINI PROJECTS 01 – Vinyl Crafting Quote
So today I discovered why everyone loves working with vinyl! It’s pretty, easy to work with, and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on surfaces when removed. I wanted something pretty simple to decorate the door to my office/craft room and ran across the quote you see below. With the quote and an additional flourish element, the project was just what I wanted!
- Cricut Vinyl in Ocean color
This was the second time I’ve worked with vinyl and I’ve discovered that you really should have some transfer tape on hand for quotes. Without the tape I had to put each letter and word on one by one! Fortunately, it’s easy to reposistion if needed.
Here’s a look at my first project ….. front door decoration. If you look closely you can see some bubbles in the vinyl. Again, no transfer tape. Next time I’ll be sure and have some on hand as I think it will make the application a lot nicer.
You can find tons of fantastic quotes for free online or in the Cricut Design Space and if you can’t find just what you want …. making your own is super easy! You’ll find tons of great fonts inside the design space or you can create your own in a graphics program and then pull it into design space.
One day this week I’m using my favorite quote to decoration the guest bathroom mirror. I’ll be sure and update this post when it’s done and have a FREE cut file for you as well.
So stay tuned and in the meantime . . . pull out your Cricut machine, grab some vinyl and see what you can come up with!
