I have been wanting to do this for MONTHS. I finally got it done! Thanks to a girls’ day with one of my BFFs! I got the idea from this product. If you don’t want to make your own – she has some CUTE ones! [This one is cute too!]
What you will need:
- Die-Cut Machine
- Design (I used an SVG found online and SCAL2)
- Vinyl in color of your choice (I bought mine at Joann’s; can also order online here or here)
- Glad Press and Seal or Vinyl Transfer tape
- An extra pair of hands for application (optional)
- Select whatever cut you want to make, measure your appliance (where you want to place the vinyl), size appropriately. Here’s my SCAL2 File and the SVGs from VectorLady!
- Cut on a scrap sheet of paper. Test it to check for size and placement.
- When you have your final draft perfected, cut on the vinyl! I recommend a kiss cut. Settings:
- Cut through – Basic Shape >1″ in size – Blade Depth 4 – Speed 3 – Pressure 3
- Cut through – Intricate Shape <1″ in size – Blade Depth 4 – Speed 2 – Pressure 3
- Kiss cut – Basic Shape >1 – Blade Depth 3 – Speed 2-3 –
- Kiss cut – Intricate Shape <1″ – Blade Depth 3 – Speed 1 – Pressure 2
- Remove the extra vinyl that you don’t need.
- Follow directions on transfer tap or these directions for Glad Press and Seal. Remove from mat.
- Remove the backing on the vinyl.
- Carefully apply – an extra pair of hands comes in handy! Because of the curve of the mixer, and because I did not do a kiss cut, I had to cut and fudge some of the round parts.
- Remove the transfer tape / Press and Seal if you haven’t already.
- Admire your work!
I cut two of the large designs and then separated the 2nd design to put on smaller sections of the appliances.
I put some on my food processor too!
