Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Hang shower curtain in place and use masking tape or other removable tape to mark the top of the tub onto the shower curtain. This will help you know where to position the skeleton (what will show and what will be hidden by the tub).
Optional - Cut all pieces from cardstock or poster board. Place the pieces on the floor or other large work area. Play around with the arrangement until you like it. (This was the most fun of all!) Put double-sided tape on the front of all the pieces. Carefully position the shower curtain on top of the posed skeleton (with the outside facing up), trying not to let any pieces shift. If you don't want to do all the extra cutting, skip to Step 3.
Cut all the pieces from vinyl using KISS cut. Rough cut around your shapes leaving a small margin. Remove all "scrap" vinyl pieces that you won't be using. If you didn't do Step 2, lay out your shower curtain on a large workspace and position your pieces until you are satisfied with your arrangement.
Ink the edges of the bubbles.
Peel off a small section of the backing from the first piece of skeleton and carefully position it on top of your pattern underneath (or back where you had it if you skipped Step 2). Press firmly, smoothing out any bubbles and slowly peel off the remaining backing, pressing into place as you go. Repeat this until you have all your pieces adhered. You can use the transfer tape method, but I found it easier to just peel and stick on most pieces.
To make the decorative hooks, just cut appropriate shapes (I chose spiders) from cardstock and adhere with temporary tape or glue dots to each of the hooks.
For even more fun, stick additional shapes on the shower walls. (Be sure to use the removable vinyl.)
Hang your shower curtain and enjoy all the compliments!


I have included my CCR file for this life-size skeleton. If you can't use the 12x24 mat, you can just size all the pieces until they fit on 12x12 mats. This would leave you with a slightly smaller skeleton, but I think it would still work, especially if you just had it in a standing position.

I had so much fun making this! I think I'm going to make one for each holiday/season.

Step 1

Hang shower curtain in place and use masking tape or other removable tape to mark the top of the tub onto the shower curtain. This will help you know where to position the skeleton (what will show and what will be hidden by the tub).

Step 2

Optional - Cut all pieces from cardstock or poster board. Place the pieces on the floor or other large work area. Play around with the arrangement until you like it. (This was the most fun of all!) Put double-sided tape on the front of all the pieces. Carefully position the shower curtain on top of the posed skeleton (with the outside facing up), trying not to let any pieces shift.

Step 3

Cut all the pieces from vinyl using KISS cut. Rough cut around your shapes leaving a small margin. Remove all "scrap" vinyl pieces that you won't be using. If you didn't do Step 2, lay out your shower curtain on a large workspace and position your pieces until you are satisfied with your arrangement.

Step 4

Ink the edges of the bubbles.

Step 5

Peel off a small section of the backing from the first piece of skeleton and carefully position it on top of your pattern underneath (or back where you had it if you skipped Step 2). Press firmly, smoothing out any bubbles and slowly peel off the remaining backing, pressing into place as you go. Repeat this until you have all your pieces adhered.

Step 6

Step 7

Step 8
