April always has me itching for spring. Flowers especially Daffodils and Cherry Blossoms always rank high on my list of favorite things at this time of year. It also makes me want to update the wall art in my house.
The little library I have in my house has a distinctly Asian feel to it, that I absolutely love and I was looking for another way to incorporate Cherry Blossoms into my favorite room when I was given the chance to test out Cricut's new iron-on vinyl. I have to say I LOVE this stuff. It is easy to cut, easy to weed and easy to well, iron on.
a fat quarter, I used a black one with a subtle pattern
The first thing you need to do is cut the image for your art. I used my Cricut Mini and cut the branch for my project almost the whole length of the cutting mat. Since my image was so skinny, I made sure to add a couple of images to the mat for a shirt for my 4-year-old. I didn't want to waste any heat transfer. Make sure if you are printing words to flip the images before you cut them. Each sheet of heat transfer has two part to its a plastic sheet and the actual heat transfer. In this case the heat transfer is white, this is the part you want face up on your cutting mat.
Add a dowel through the ribbon loops and hang on the wall, while crossing your fingers that spring is here to stay this time.vinyl bundle or with a machine and tool kit, at an incredible discount!
(I was given a sample of the heat transfer in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)
