Ice Buckets



I found a few of these clear ice buckets and have had fun working with vinyl designs on them. The rainbow dot one has white dry erase vinyl on the front so you can change and personalize it for any event!

Dry Erase Vinyl at Michaels


Looking for dry erase vinyl - check your local Michaels. I found this roll for $4.99 (then I used a 50% off coupon for $2.50). It is 14 x 59 inches or 5.7 square feet. This is about .44 a square foot - great price!!

Train Crossing sign


I saw this project and thought it would be so easy to make with vinyl. My son is a little old for this, but so cute for those with little boys!

First Place!


I have to brag on my son. He won FIRST place in the Pinewood Derby for his Cub Scout Pack. (and he set a track record for the fastest car). The theme of this derby was "cartoons", so he chose to do Diary of a Wimpy Kid. We used vinyl to put the design on.

Faux Apothecary Jar







I love the look of apothecary jars all perched on their pedestals. I found this glass cannister and wanted to make an apothecary type jar out of it. I used Gorilla Glue to glue the candle stick to the jar - it worked very well. I used a piece of chalkboard vinyl on the front so I can label the contents if I want.

Plastic Tubs







Found these plastic tubs at my local dollar store - they are a great size - 12 inches a the top opening. I used the outdoor vinyl for the designs. It was harder to come up with a "boy" design - the skull one will be for a birthday present, with a few small things in it and all wrapped up like a gift basket!

Wine Glass Identifiers







I made these paper wine glass id's with cutting two simple circles. I used the print n cut method to get the designs on them. I made one kind where you can write the name on them (using circular text), and others which were just designs printed in different colors. These could be done for party themes, weddings, and such!
The circle is cut at 3 inches, the design is printed at 2.5 inches and the inner circle is .66 inches.
I also thought of making them out of vinyl so they would be reusable (just different colors of vinyl for each one)
