It's time to get ready for summer....and vinyl is the newest "in" thing! I craft on a budget...and vinyl transfer paper is expensive! I knew there had to be an alternative to using it...and there is! Painter's Tape is the answer! I have that stuff all over my house between my own projects and the other half's.
Here is my "Drink Tub" and a step-by-step Tutorial on how to use it :)
Step 1: Cut Your Vinyl
Step 2: Cover the vinyl with the painter's tape (be sure to leave a small area outside of the tape, this makes it easier to get the tape off)
Step 3: Peel the backing off of the vinyl so that it looks like the photo below.
Step 4: Place the vinyl where and on what you like. I am labeling my drink tub for summer BBQ's.
Step 5: Carefully peel the tape off of the vinyl. I started with an area of tape that was not attached to the actual vinyl. Be careful to encourage the vinyl to stay while the tape comes off. If you move too fast or are not careful, the vinyl will not stay.
Step 6: Awe in the wonder if your great craftiness!!
Don't forget to have fun!!
