Previous this month, we held my daughters seventh birthday celebration, and there was once no wondering what the theme could be. She was once in complete on unicorn mode. So once I noticed this holographic vinyl that Cricut simply launched, I knew I needed to incorporate it into the celebration one way or the other. What I stopped up growing was once…
…holographic vinyl bubble wands!
I completely adore the best way those grew to become out. You already know if you have a challenge thought on your head that seems even higher than you imagined? This was once a type of tasks. I’m in love.
To make your personal, you’ll want:
The very first thing to do is create your design in Design House. (Psst – there’s a brand new beta model of DS. You want to make use of it – it’s such a lot faster and more uncomplicated than the present model.)
I uploaded the unicorn design that I used to be the use of for the remainder of the celebration (the set is known as Unicorn Poo and it’s by way of Jessica Sawyer), and duplicated it 5 occasions, sized every one to another measurement, and duplicated every of them a ton of occasions. I did the similar with a celeb and a center (from fundamental shapes), and a rainbow that I discovered within the Cricut Design Library.
Then, I created a field that was once the dimensions of my bubble wand (about nine×three.five inches) and stuffed it up with my more than a few sizes and styles. Some I needed to measurement somewhat as I went. I most effective stuffed about part of the field, then connected them, and copied and pasted to the ground part.
I additionally did some with names and somewhat unicorn as smartly.
When I had created all of my designs, I hit the make button and away it went. It was once spell binding observing the vinyl mirror and alter colours because it moved out and in of the device!
After the chopping got here the joys section. Weeding. (Howdy Cricut, the place are we on that self weeding device?) It if truth be told wasn’t as unhealthy as I anticipated although, since the vinyl had lower so properly. Even the tiniest shapes got here aside simply.
Switch tape was once a should for this challenge! I positioned the center of my design at the wand first after which smoothed one facet of it onto the bubble wand. I pulled again the switch tape a little on that facet, in case the second one facet overlapped any – I didnt need it to overlap onto the switch tape.
Peel off the switch tape and also you’re accomplished. Lovely easy proper? This holographic vinyl is fantastic – and so forth pattern! It is going very best with a unicorn celebration, and is available in 3 colours. I used the opal, however you’ll be able to additionally get red and blue.
Now I’m attempting to consider the entire puts which might be begging for holographic vinyl… I feel my craft room is the primary position I’ll assault. What about you? How would you utilize this superior vinyl?
This can be a backed dialog written by way of me on behalf of Cricut. The evaluations and textual content are all mine.
