Vinyl - Southwest Theme on my Kitchen Cabnets. I wanted to give my cabnets a touch of the southwest flair and bring out the Native American Heritage that lives in the house.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Masking Tape
  • scissors
  • Vinyl

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I cut the bottom solid border layer in red vinyl at 7 1/2" X 2 1/2" and the corners at 2 1/2" X 2 1/2". Then I selected turquoise vinyl for the top layer and cut them at 7 1/2" 2 1/2" and the corners at 2 1/2" X 2 1/2". I also cut the bird for the corners in yellow vinyl at 3/4". First I cut all the base, then the middle then the top. Cut vinyl at pressure 3, blade 3, multi cut 1, and speed for this cartridge at 2 - it will give it a "kiss" cut which cuts only the vinyl and leaves the backing. Layering more than 2 can be a little more difficult but it's very easy to do.
Once cut - I start w/ the bottom layer and "weed" out all the negative space - a good pair of tweezers works great for this. I then weed the middle layer, and then the top.
I take the middle layer and lay it on top of the bottom. (I work this way as I find it works better) then I take the top and layer on the middle. Layering 2 is pretty easy but layering 3 is a little harder as you have 2 other layers to work with. However I only have three layers on the corners.
To transfer the finished borders and corners I use transfer tape (masking tape works great also). I lay the length of transfer tape over the words and rub. Lift off the transfer tape SLOWLY - then place on the kitchen cabnets.
