Earth Day Custom Tee Shirt

Earth Day is Friday and there are many ways you can celebrate this day. I have chosen a custom tee shirt project using the Pazzles Iron on Vinyl. Using only one Craft Room file, Think Green, I ungrouped everything so I could weld the trunk of the tree with the leafy part. This means it will cut out as one piece, and you get a better idea for how it looks as a silhouette. The text is already welded. Click on Wire Frame to double check if in doubt with any file. Next, I added the hashtag #earthday in Blackjack font and also welded that together so it cut in one piece.

Napping Vinyl Sign

Napping Vinyl Sign

When my daughter asked me if I could make a sign for her front door for her new pre-school/daycare, I immediately said yes. I love to work with vinyl. It cuts so nicely and is so easy to work with. I found the saying that she wanted to use, then picked out the fonts I had on my computer and created this piece. I bought a 12 x 12 chalkboard piece from Joann Fabrics. I added paint to the edges and then put the vinyl on it. Of course, I couldn't stop there, because not everyone that naps is a child, so there are a number of different options for everyone in your life, including you.

Graduate Gift Card Holder and Box

Graduation Gift Card Holder and ...

Graduations are just around the corner, and what better way to surprise the graduate in your life than with a card and gift box all in one? This file was created using the matchbox file as a base. I added a section to the side which becomes the easel card sitting on top. I enlarged the file to cover my 12x12 mat so the card was a decent size. It also means that the box is large enough to hold a gift card or a jewelry box for example.
