Today’s guest designer on Team KNK, Nicole, made a beautiful and personalized memorial flag case. Read all the way to the bottom to see a full size photo!
- Outdoor vinyl, dark red and silver
- Paper Transfer Tape
- Standard (red cap) blade
- Glass from memorial flag shadow box
- Force: 15
- Pass: 1
- Up/Down: 10/10
- Red blade @ 25 Post-it height
Step 1: Make a shape that represents the visible glass of the case.
Step 2: Pick a font for the name. I chose Baskerville Old Face from MTC.
Step 3: Make a shadow layer and weld it to make it thicker.
Step 4: Pick a font for the birth and death dates. I chose the font Great Vibes from dafont.com.
Step 5: Add triangles for registration marks on all 4 sides. Use horizontal/vertical center functions to line up the triangles to the script.
Step 6: Mirror the layer that is going on the back of the glass.
Step 7: Cut the vinyl and weed the excess.
Step 8: Mark the glass on the opposite side with a Sharpie marker.
Step 9: Clean the the glass thoroughly then spray with application fluid. I made my own fluid with baby soap and water (very, very little soap is needed). Apply the vinyl using transfer paper ensuring the registration marks line up with the lines. The application fluid allows you to wiggle the vinyl exactly into place.
Step 11: Carefully peel off the transfer tape and make registration marks for other side.
Step 12: Repeat steps 8-10 for the second script layer.
