The last few Thursdays, I have been sharing some ideas for dressing up everyday items with vinyl. Last week, several of you asked a question similar to this one by Domestic Nerd:
I am loving all your vinyl projects! This might be a stupid question...but how do you "do" vinyl? I read that you print it out...on paper, onto vinyl? Do I buy printable vinyl? Sorry...I know it sounds dumb, but I'm new to this & would love to label the canisters in my pantry. Thanks!
I am SO glad that several of you echoed this question.... because I was wondering the very same thing just about a year ago! This is not a stupid question at all. Vinyl is new to me too, but I am loving the new addition in my life! Vinyl offers me so many more options in my crafting world. So THANK YOU for asking this question!
I thought I would walk you through the vinyl process--at least in my own simple way. There are many others who have a greater knowledge of vinyl, but I'll walk you through a vinyl adventure, Oopsey Daisy style!
To get your hands on your own vinyl, you have 2 options:
1. You can order your own custom vinyl through a vinyl company. I have never bought vinyl online, but there are many reputable vinyl-producing companies online who find out what text or design you want cut, and then send it right to your door! I have never purchased vinyl this way, so I don't know much more beyond that!
2. Using a Cricut or Silhouette machine, you can cut your own vinyl. This is what I do!
Come along with me on a regular everyday adventure with vinyl...
