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.

Why did I not think of using my Sizzix for vinyl? Because I’ve been too wrapped up in my Cricut to think of it. Need to get my Sizzix back out. Pretty!
Sue this is just beautiful! Since I made that round clock I can feel your pain trying to line up all those “Thanks”! Great job!
