Used Cricut Craft Room to design it. FireTrucks and Fire Stations on 12" x 24" mat decorated room for 2 year old and new baby. Name on trucks. Used Birthdate as number of truck. We set the 6" x 6" station about 10-12" apart on wall. FireMan, Hydrant, Dog on 12" x 12" mat & added lines to the fire hydrant because vinyl doesn't show the cut line well. Next time will add blackout shadow to dog so he stands out more from white wall. I used the Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Editon. I added CCR file of trucks and stations. Cut as many stations as needed to go on whatever walls you want.

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cricut Craft Room to design. Use text box to change name and date. Can enlarge it needed. Spaces in between month day and year. DO NOT WELD name & date.
Vinyl on mat; use Kiss cut or set speed and pressure to 3 each.
"Weed" & discard the excess vinyl with pick tool from Cricut tool kit.
Use transfer tape over image front on vinyl; peel backing off image, using spreader tool to keep image stuck to transfer tape.
Put image on wall where you want (we used a level for the trucks and painters tape to line it up); use spreader tool to push image on to wall, smoothing out bubbles if any.
Slowly peel transfer tape from image using spreader tool on top of transfer tape to push down on image. Might have to use fingers to smooth smaller parts (like the inside of the letter O) as pulling tape off.
Once transfer tape is off, use spreader tool to smooth out vinyl or bubbles, an flatten it to wall.

Very cute project! I like how you added their name and birth date to the firetrucks! Lucky Boys!
