Video Tutorial – How to make your Porch Blossom!
Here are the steps I took to make the Hello Spring Sign
Step 1 – Prep your board. My lovely husband sanded and then stained my board for me. Remember when staining less is more. The more stain you use the longer it takes to dry. Once the board is dry I sprayed a few coat of clear sealer. I normally like 2x by rustoleum, howevere, I was out. I found a clear coat. It was totally fine to use. I just had a few areas that I must have been heavy handed when I sprayed and the vinyl did not want to come off at first. It was not a problem in the end!!!
Step 2 – While everything is drying. Open the SVG file in your cutting software (note: if you have the free version of Silhouette studio you will need the DFX files). Size the sign according to the board you will be working with. Pick your fun vinyl colors and cut everything out. For the butterflies I used 2 colors, a darker body and lighter wings.
Step 3 – Once your adhesive is cut weed your vinyl. Then apply your transfer tape.
Step 4 – Arrange your pieces on your board. I found that it was easier to put Hello on first. I found the middle of the word and board and placed it. Then it was easier to place the rest. Remember to use the picture to help. I started in the middle and worked my way to the outer edges. I used the parchment paper to help with the centering and placement. Pull the backing off of the adhesive letter. Then place your vinyl and transfer tape on the parchment paper. Leave some of your transfer tape exposed so you can adhere it to the board. You will see in the video how i did that. Once you have it in the place you want it apply the top of the transfer tape. Then slide your parchment paper out. Finish adhering the letter and then carefully remove your transfer tape.
Step 5 – Repeat step 4 until you have everything applied to your board. I did let my board sit in the house for a day before putting it outside to make sure everything was ok.
