Have you been wondering how to Slice in Design Space? The "Slice" tool is one of the best ways to cut one image out of another image inside the Design Space software. There are so many ways to use this tool! Today, I thought I would share one of my favorite ways to use Slice on decals.
For this example, I'll show you how to take a monogram and play around with it for making your own personalized jewelry boxes. If you want to see the assembly steps, I'll link another post that shows you how to apply the decals.
If you're a visual/auditory learner, feel free to check out the video below!
Installing a Font
We're going to go to DaFont.com to select a Monogram design to work with. You can also use a free monogram creation app, such as MonogramIt, to create a cutting file. In this video, I show you the complete process for how to customize a monogram using the slice tool in Cricut Design Space.
When I found this bicycle rim, I knew it would be perfect to brighten up the entrance to our home! If you happen to run across any bike rims, this is an easy way to create a door wreath or art on a budget! Have you made a bicycle rim wreath before? If so, I'd love to see what you've made!
Here's what you'll need to get started:
Our friends bought a new home together for their upcoming wedding, and we knew that it was an occasion worth a fun celebration! We wanted to bring something that was an easy item to take over on our next visit but that still felt special. I decided to personalize a bottle of wine!
This is a great DIY project to tackle, even if you're new to using a vinyl cutting machine, such as a Cricut! I recommend trying out Cricut's Textured Metallic Vinyl to add more texture and interest to your DIY! It comes in really beautiful metallic tones that shimmer in light.
Our friends loved it so much that they kept the bottle!
Here's what you will need:
A Cricut or other vinyl cutting machine
A bottle of wine/champagne
Cricut's Textured Metallic Vinyl
Cricut's Standard Transfer Tape
Take the initials and place them directly front and center on the bottle. Apply using transfer tape, being careful to smooth them from the center towards the edges. Place the individual leaves around the bottle, making sure to highlight the center portion by keeping space around them. It's a great beginner-friendly DIY!
