Let’s Work With Adhesive!

This challenge is all about working with adhesive vinyl.  Your mission is to take the attached ‘Flower Bundle’ design (pictured above) , download it, cut it out on adhesive (sticky vinyl), and apply it to something!

Here are a few ideas on where you might want to apply it:

  • Water Bottle
  • Car
  • Wall
  • Door
  • Binder or Notebook
  • Planner
  • Mug

But wait there is more!  While you are creating your decal I want you to document and/or take note of things that work and things you learn.  It could be a type of transfer tape, or maybe certain vinyl you had to cut deeper, or even a color combo, etc.

Thirdly and most important you know what’s coming… show off your PROJECT PHOTO HERE in our Facebook club community.  We also want to hear what you learned and what worked for you on the project.  This not only helps you for next time but also our entire community.

If you have worked with adhesive and you want to take the project to the next level here are a few ideas:
1. Create a multi-colored decal.
(I love using the registration marks method to make sure all the elements are totally lined up)
Watch the registration mark tutorial for Cricut Users HERE.
Watch the registration mark tutorial for Silhouette Users HERE.
2. Add an offset to the image and cut that in a different color.
3. Make stickers with the print and cut method.
4. Use another design from the library and create a decal with it.

Adhesive Vinyl Tips:
1. When cutting the decorative or shiny side goes facing up (towards you) on your mat.
2. Do not mirror your design when cutting.
3. Make sure to weed design before applying the transfer tape.
4. Use clear transfer tape to be able to easily see the decal and where you need to place it.
5. When removing the transfer tape pull flat against the item to help it release from the adhesive easier.
