You know me and quick projects - love them. I cranked this out one afternoon using my Cameo. Normally I tell people you could cut the design by hand, but this one's pretty intricate, and that would be crazy.
But I still wanted to show off my cute Valentine Plate. And so I thought I'd take the opportunity to show all you with craft cutters a quick tutorial on how to use transfer tape, because the first few times I cut vinyl/contact paper, I had no idea the dream stuff existed.
Here we go - -
Design and cut your image - you probably can't see this at all cause it's white, so just imagine...
First peel away all the "negative space" - anything you don't want to use - you know, the middle of "o" and "a" and all the surrounding vinyl. Then you're left with just your word. Then cut a piece of transfer tape, peel off its backing, and stick it on top of the word. Then peel the back off the word - now it should be stuck to the transfer tape with it's sticky side exposed. This allows you to place it onto whatever you want in one step - - so instead of putting each letter down individually and messing up how it lines up, the transfer tape holds it all together for you - genius!
So anyways, take a plate that a friend left at your house (minus all the cookies - yum!)
Silhouette or Expressions Vinyl (which is where I bought my last batch - I like to buy a bunch just to have some on hand)
I had a great helper on this project:
And then after getting her picture taken she wanted to take mine - - so here ya go:
Gotta love those easy projects!!
