  • Weeder and Scraper Tool

Instructions

PREPARE WOOD CIRCLES

  • First thing first – paint one side of all the wood circles and leave it to dry fully.
  • Paint the reverse sides of all the wood circles and leave it to dry fully.
  • Add a small amount of both paint colors and mix for a light gray color. On the white painted sides of the circle, paint three evenly spaced lines using a ruler to keep the lines straight.

UPLOADING THE SVG PATTERN

  • Download the SVG file from the email to your computer.
  • Open Cricut Design Space.
  • Click on the “+” sign to start a new project, opening up a blank canvas.
  • Click on the Upload button from the toolbar to insert the downloaded Blessed Family Home SVG onto the canvas.
  • Maintain sizes at about 5.25” wide to fit within the 6” wood circles.
  • Highlight the word along with the leaf art together and select “attach” to join the separate images. Do this with the word “family” as well.
  • Adjust the color of the words along with the leaf art to white and maintain the other words in black to match Smart Vinyl material colors.

CUTTING THE VINYL

  • Ensure the machine is set to Cricut Joy and select “Make It” in Design Space.
  • Choose “Without Mat” as the option for cutting when using Smart Vinyl. If you are using regular vinyl select “On Mat” and place vinyl on Joy cutting mat.
  • Set material type to Smart Vinyl (or Vinyl if using regular vinyl).
  • Follow prompts for loading the mat into the Cricut Joy and cutting the Smart Vinyl. When prompted, unload the vinyl from the cutting machine.

APPLYING THE VINYL TO THE WOOD CIRCLES

  • Using the weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl around the images and discard.
  • Cut a piece of transfer tape a bit larger than the size of the word or image.
  • Peel away the transfer tape backing and place the transfer tape overtop of the cut image. Gently rub the vinyl to help it stick to the transfer tape.
  • Peel away the vinyl backing and place the image on to the wood circle. The white lettering goes on the relic painted side of the circles and the black lettering goes on the white painted side of the circles.
  • Gently rub the vinyl to help it stick to the wood. You can use a Cricut scraper tool or your finger nails for this.
  • Carefully and slowly peel away the transfer tape.
  • Repeat with the remaining vinyl images and wood circles.
