Down to the wire

Sorry this is late! There is one last week to get things done before Christmas. I am close to being done, mainly because I have downsized significantly.:~)

I wanted to share some fun things that I have made recently. So much has changed in the 10 years that KNK has been on the market. Starting out there were few files to be found, now there are thousands. The best thing is that you can find free or very reasonable files every where and it is extremely easy to create your own.

It is a flat ornament but has a bit of a curve so it is always helpful to apply the center part of the vinyl first and work your way out. Here is the file he-sees-you-when-your-drinking-team-knk-knk

The second is a purchased file for the truck and tree and the rest was fonts. It is amazing how many fonts are out there free that have flourishes, sayings, logos, etc.

The third is an image I saw on line and developed a file so that I could cut it from vinyl. Here is the file for the window image. In the file, it is sized for a glass block, I also made it into a card. deer-with-tree-and-cardinal-card-team-knk

And the last is a purchased file, I think the company was called APEX. Some files are just worth buying and this was one of them.

Materials

plastic flat ornament

pine board

mdf board

I have found that using the wet method of applying vinyl to glass is a wonderful thing. Just google it and there are videos to show you how. Just make sure that you use the paper transfer tape.

Searching for something for this post an old post of Judy’s popped up , check it out here.  It pays to go back through old posts to see what you may have missed.

Merry Christmas and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store.
