Update: The Cricut decals shown below are now available in my Etsy shop. Just go here:
For this week’s project, I thought I would decorate my Cricut Expression with some vinyl. I found this cute little owl over at Shery K Designs. Isn’t he adorable?
I had several vinyl colors on hand. I usually all my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. I use SCAL, so I downloaded the file and imported it onto my SCAL. This is what my screen looked like.
I sized my image, then using powder blue, ice blue, pink, and brown vinyl, I cut it out. I keep my blade on 6, and set my pressure to 3 for all vinyl cut outs, and get perfect cuts every time.
Then, I put him all together using clear contact paper.
Then, I cut out a little branch I had in my files. You can find it here. It includes a bird, so I just removed that part with scissors.
It looked cute like it was, but I thought a little monogram would add a nice touch, so I cut one out and added it as well. The font is just Times New Roman, and I got the scallop circle SVG here.
This is what the final project looked like.
Now for that Christmas un-decorating that I should be doing…
I’m linking up to these great parties:
