Cricut Artiste Jack o’Lantern & Frankenstein Vinyl Halloween Plates

Halloween is just around the creepy corner, so here’s a quick and easy project just for you!  If you need to take treats to an event, are having a party or need some festive decor this will fit the bill, both literally and figuratively because these plates don’t cost much.  LOL!

I’m using the Cricut Expression 2 along with the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge, plastic charger plates from Michael’s craft store and just little bit of green and black vinyl.

Need vinyl?  I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.

I’m cutting out the jack o’lantern and Frankenstein from page 77 in the Cricut Artiste booklet.  I cut them out at 5.5″.  The Cricut Artiste cartridge is really versatile!  Here are a few other projects that I’ve made with it.

After cutting the vinyl out, remove the pieces you don’t want to use.  I do this right on the mat as you see above.  I use the Fiskars craft knife to do all my weeding.

Now cover your weeded vinyl with transfer tape (or masking tape).  Burnish it (sweep over it with pressure) using a squeegee or an old gift card.  Now, lift the transfer tape with your vinyl attached and move it to your project.

If you need help using vinyl with your Cricut, you’ll love my Cricut Vinylology DVD.  It will teach you everything you need to know about using vinyl!

After you have the vinyl faces where you want them, use your squeegee again and burnish them onto the plate.  All done!  You’re so crafty!

These are fast, easy AND inexpensive.  They’d make great gifts, especially with a pile of treats packed on top!  (Feel free to deliver those treats to me.  LOL!)
