Welcome to the Harvesting Memories Blog Hop!! Today we are celebrating fall and when I think of fall, I think of family. We have three birthdays in November in my family - my husband was actually born ON Thanksgiving!!
You should have arrived from Deb's BLOG. If you found me first, please go to the BEGINNING so you don't miss anything!!!
I have been having too much fun with vinyl lately, and I am making a ton of decorated wine glasses for Christmas gifts this year. I decided to make one for Thanksgiving. I don't care for wine - at least I didn't until I tried Moscato!!! I am thankful that someone created a sweet wine :)
I cleaned my wine glass with rubbing alcohol. I found this design in the Silhouette Online Store and sized it to fit my glass front. Since wine glasses come in different sizes, it is best to get out your trusty dusty ruler and measure so you don't waste your vinyl!
It is hard to see in this photo, but I used dark brown vinyl (not black). I use the Vinyl setting which cuts just the vinyl, not the paper backing. I peel away (weed) the extra pieces. I use clear contact paper from Dollar Tree as transfer tape.
I tied a bow on the stem.
I recommend hand washing after use.
A few helpful hints about vinyl, I keep one blade for vinyl only and the other for cardstock. This keeps the vinyl blade sharp longer. If you have a cricut machine, the best setting for vinyl is 3-3-3, blade depth - 3, speed - 3, and pressure - 3.
Use a dental tool or sharp poker to peel away (weed) the extra pieces.
Burnish the clear contact paper on the weeded image. You can use a scraper (looks like the Pampered Chef Scraper) or a credit card or even a popsicle stick.
Burnish the image on your surface.
Take your time with curved edges!
What are you giving thanks for this year?
