Video Tutorial – Time for the Red White and Blue!
Here are the steps I took to make the Patriotic Tiered Tray
Step 1 – If you are using a sign from the Dollar Tree that has an image on it scrap it off. I found if I got it wet it came off real easy. Once that is done paint the items that need to be white white. On mine I painted the edges of the 6×6 signs white to start with and then painted them red and blue after. It helped cover up the green that i had on mine. After the white is dry paint the other things blue and red. For the scrabble tray I took 4 tumble tower blocks and glued them together to form the tray. I then painted it blue. I painted the bottom (actually top, but it will be flipped over) slat of the mini crate blue and the other end red. I painted the middle of the mini rolling pin red also.
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 items according to the supplies you will be working with. Then cut out your vinyl.
Step 3 – Once your adhesive is cut weed your vinyl. For the small detailed items I found that reverse weeding working best. Put your transfer tape on the item and remove what you do not want from there. I have the noted in the video.
Step 4 – Once everything is weeded time to apply the vinyl to our projects. I have things organized and group for you so the America sign with the star the red is all together. So I put the transfer tape on the red portion. Used parchment paper to align everything up I placed it on the blue offset. Then I applied it to the sign. Then I put the white on top.
For Let Freedom Ring I put the transfer tape on the white portion, then used parchment paper to align it up on top of the red and placed. then repeated to put it on the blue. The applied it to the sign.
Continue placing the rest of t the vinyl on your pieced.
Step 5 – For the banner I did the print and cut and printed it on white cardstock and then cut that out on my cutting machine. So easy and a time saver!
Step 6 – Now add your decorative accents. For the rolling pin i tied a piece of star ribbon on the one end. For the books I used a wide burlap patriot ribbon to cover the slats of the crate. The made a messy bow and put that on top with white jute. Have fun and play with this step! Use what you have!!
