Vinyl Graduation Tile


Graduation Tile

Graduation Tile

I love to make personalized gifts, something they can’t get anywhere else. This tile was designed in KNK Studio. The vinyl is Oracal 631 indoor vinyl. When I make tiles I wipe the tile down with rubbing alcohol. Then I use a pencil and make lines on my tile so that when I apply the vinyl it is straight on the tile. I apply the vinyl using clear transfer tape so that I can see exactly where the vinyl is going. This is especially important when layering vinyl. Once the vinyl is applied just go over the pencil lines with the alcohol wipe and the lines disappear! The background paper and the picture were applied using Modge Podge. I recently read where you can use iron on fabric transfer paper, print your picture, and then iron it on to your tile. Sounds easier than modge podge. :O)

  1. Nancy, what great idea!!! I have cut vinyl and put on different surface but I have never tried on a tile. Thanks for your idea, I love it!!!

  2. Very cool! What a great idea — Using a tile. I’m a huge vinyl geek, so I’m always interested in new uses for vinyl material.

    Thanks for sharing, Nancy!

  3. I’m sure that Lyndsey will treasure this forever. What a great graduation gift! I love seeing another use for vinyl and a definitie use for clear transfer tape. I need to add that to my arsenal of supplies. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Love this idea! I did a very similar thing by using vinyl on the cover of a picture album for a graduation gift. But I would never have thought to make it into a tile plaque. Thanks so much for sharing this neat project!

  5. Great Job, Nancy!!! You have great ideas and they turn out to be wonderful. I’m sure Lindsey will know you think she is special.

  6. I am so glad that you posted this. I have a problem with my vinyl coming off of the tile. I am going to try this..
