Here is the project I mostly finished:
I say mostly because my intention was to label more things. Except I hit a snag, which I will share with you later on.
I decided to take my "indefinitely loaned"circuit cutter for a spin. I'm holding on to it for a friend of mine due to their housing situation. I have had it almost a year, and only tested it out once, so I figured it was time to get something going on it. I loaded some vinyl into the machine, typed out some letters and hit cut. I did this a few times.
Then I peeled back the extra and it looked like this:
Then simply place your letters where you want them on the desired surface, pressing well with a popsicle stick (included with the vinyl), or like object.
You now have your finished project.
I was SOOO excited, look how great this looks! And it was SOOOOO easy, now I'm going to label the rest of my containers. This is where I realized my mistake. After I had finished cutting the word "rice"I saw a cool button on my machine that said "Paper saver". In my head I had a simple conversation with myself that went simply like this: I like saving paper, especially expensive vinyl paper. That is a genius button, I'm going to push it. So I did, which now was the cause of my head ache. Notice how my letters are no longer spaced for simply just cutting and placing. I now have to cut, measure, arrange and then place.
The words "Medina" and "love" are for another project, but the word "flour" I needed to place on my flour container. Notice how above the "F" and "L" are not aligned with the "our" properly? Ya, stupid paper saver button. Still I foraged on.
I then went to place the vinyl onto it and I realized my even more deadly mistake. I forgot to measure them to make sure that the words would fit...
OOPPS! (see this is why I am so homemaking challenged). So as not to be defeated I placed the word vertically instead.
I think it turned out alright.
I will be linking up here, so join the fun!
