I have stayed away from venturing into vinyl with my crafting. Why? Because I thought it would be difficult and too much trouble. Last year I made a few ornaments with vinyl but didn't know what the heck I was doing and had no idea what transfer tape was (!) so did it a really difficult way and said..."uh...this is NOT for me!".
Fast forward to Pinterest viewing and lots of videos showing how easy it is to work with. I also found, through some recommendations, a great source for vinyl which is Expressions Vinyl with great prices, lightning fast shipping and good customer service. So I placed an order and have been slowly venturing into the world of vinyl.
Here is my first project and I am thrilled with the way it turned out. The Santa as well as the "Believe" phrase are from the Silhouette store....you just basically cut them out with a die cut machine...mine is the Silhouette Cameo, of course, and then slap it on your surface. My surface of choice was a glass block from Hobby Lobby. When finished... you stuff it with lights, tie a bow around and call it FINISHED! And it does have the wow factor, in my opinion.
Look how pretty the phrase cut out:
I'm going to give one to my daughter and one to my future daughter in law when they come for our family Thanksgiving meal on Sunday. I know they will love them!
