Good morning, I had an awesome night relaxing, listening to music, and making some christmas gifts for the girls at work. I just discovered the power of a Cricut cutting machine + Contact Paper = Stencils. I was always intemmidated with stencils, but after trying it out I am hooked. I can’t wait to get some boards to do some more wood signs.
Contact paper is very cheap at Walmart! I got a whole roll of it last year $7 when I got my cricut and I still have more than half a roll, I bought the Con-Tact Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner. I also went the cheap route and bought Glad Press’n Seal Wrap which I use for my transfer method. It is hard to maneuver sometimes, however it is $5 a roll and it has last me over a year as well. I learned about the Press and Seal method from Cuttle_fan on Pinterest. Both of these products have both worked for me great since I have started using my Cricut.
The project below I did the stencil method on burlap and then put it in a black picture frame. I created one for each of the women in my office for Christmas gifts. I watched a tutorial by Two Hearts One Love Designs on youtube to create the Split letter design in Cricut Design Space.
Another project I completed last night was a key holder. I found the inspiration from this Pinterest post. It was very easy to make and I had all the supplies saved up I was waiting for craft night. All I did was spray paint my blocks and flat black, and hot glued them together. Then I inserted little hooks on to each block. I painted the plaque white and then hot glued the keys blocks to it. TADA! A simple DIY project.
Hope you guys have a great Sunday!
