This is a repost from last year that I thought you would enjoy in case you missed it! 😀
Vinyl Snowflakes I Made. Photo taken outside looking in.
First, I’ll tell you what I used:
My Cricut Expression + mat
Joys of the Season Cricut Cart
My Gypsy…but you don’t need it for this project (read below to find out why)
Need vinyl? I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.
I basically used my Gypsy just to help me locate some snowflakes really fast, because I didn’t feel like looking at my individual cartridges. However, the Gypsy came in SUPER HANDY when I moved the snowflakes all over the mat so I could get the most cuts possible without wasting much vinyl. Cool!
These are the snowflakes AFTER I pulled off all the excess vinyl. That process is called weeding.
Well, like a big old GOOF I decided to pull these snowflakes off the mat by hand and apply them directly to the windows. I used to work in a sign shop so I like to push myself once in a while. I was able to do this, but I suggest not driving yourself crazy and using transfer tape.
So, that’s my crafty attempt for the day!! Now I’ve got to pick up kiddos and start dinner. Geeze!! Time flies when you’re creating fake snow effects.
Okay, Now Go Make Something Out Of Vinyl!!
