This month I started working with a company called Tape Technologies, the maker of
Styletch Vinyl, as their New Design Team Coordinator.
Being that it’s November…
I decided my first project should be something that I could use for Thanksgiving.
I perused my new collection of 12″ x 12″ adhesive vinyl and decided on the Sunflower
Transparent Glitter Vinyl sheet. (fyi…Styletech has a great selection of vinyl to work with.)
You can find a 10 assorted pack of 12×12 Glitter Self Adhesive Vinyl Sheets* on Amazon.
Some of you may gasp…
when I tell you that I still don’t have one of those fancy electronic die cutting machines.
(although it may be on this year’s Christmas list)
To begin this simple project… I cut the word “Thanks” using a thin steel die and my
Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting/Embossing Machine*. I cut out 8 for my large plate and
one for my small plate. Because I only wanted the “thanks” around the edge of the plate
I cut the flourish off the bottom of the “k”.
After figuring out my plate placement, I placed my die-cut “thanks” onto a flat surface and
picked up the die-cut with my Vinyl Transfer Tape*.
Once on the transfer paper I peeled back the protective layer and secured it in place on my
plate. I burnished the transferred die and removed the transfer paper.
Because I couldn’t help myself I added another die cut “Thanks” with the flourish in tack onto
a cute little thrift store find.
FYI…While I would not place the plates in the dishwasher, I did try to see how it would hold up to hand-washing. It did fine.
