It’s Silhouette Challenge day and the challenge this quarter was to create something that reminds you of summer. Well. I needed a new tumbler to take to the pool with me. One of my friends told me about these Ozark Trail cups that are suppose to be just as good as the Yeti. SO I had to try and it out and it does hold that ice pretty well. You can find the Ozark Trail cups in the camping section at Wal-Mart.
So I created a little pineapple decal to stick to my new summer cup. It was a quick and easy project! Here is what you will need:
- Silhouette Cut File
- Hook Tool
- Contact paper for transfer
Cut out your design. I sized my pineapple to fit my cup. I think my decal was around 5.5. inches tall. I cut out my pineapple in white vinyl and used a mint vinyl for my name.
Using your hook tool – weed out the vinyl you do not need, just leaving the design you want transferred on your cup.
I used this really pretty white glitter vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. I am in love with it! It almost has a transparent look to it which makes the design almost looked etched on. Anyway, LOVE it.
Use contact paper to transfer the design over to your cup. Press the contact paper on and give it a pretty good rub. Pull the contact paper off and your design should be stuck on the back so that you can transfer it over to your cup.
Step Four: Place your design on your cup and press. Repeat the steps above to transfer your name.
