CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • slate coaster
  • vinyl
  • craft room

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Select and create your design in Craft room using Chalkboard Font. I started w/ measuring my "smooth" part of the slate coasters. This allowed me 3/12 x 3/12. I then Welded several words together - like Welcom, to, our, Home, and the last names.
Once welded/set how I liked it - then I cut using my cricut mini. Vinyl kiss cut on this machine is a 3,2,2.
Then weed the negative space from the vinyl. (I cut my vinyl into smaller squares to work with).
Using transfer tape pull the word you want to transfer in this case I started with the last names. Lay the transfered image on the slate. Varnish (rub) nicely until all vinyl is stuck down.
To transfer layered images I take and put transfer tape on the top layer.
Once you have the top image covered w/ transfer tape - gentle lay the top layer onto the other layer.
Transfer completed layered images and finish the numbers on the coasters.
