Let’s get started with the ideas!!
I started with my Gypsy and Word Collage Cartridge. I sized the 4th of July subway art to 7" x 9".
I cut it out in blue vinyl and again in red vinyl. When cutting with vinyl, I set my cricut to 3-3-3 (Speed, Pressure and Blade Depth). I use my dental tool to weed out the extra pieces.
I wanted to alternate colors so I use my paper cutter to trim the subway art words into strips.
I put them back on my mat alternating red and blue strips.
I used tape to secure the strips down just in case!!
I used my transfer paper to pick up the words and numbers.
I put them on an 8x10 flat canvas. I burnished the vinyl and peeled the transfer tape off.
I ended up with two of them, one for me and one for a friend!
I was so excited that my idea worked!!
Here is my Patriotic Word Collage Project!
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!
