I’m back in school today! I’m nervous and excited to meet my new kids!
I’ve been working away this weekend getting some vinyl projects done and here they are:
This one is my favorite! I got the dry erase board from Walmart for about $3 and then cut out the word Reminders with my Cricut. This board is going to be placed on my door so that I can’t forget important stuff at the end of the day. I don’t know how many times I forget to call a parent back, or that a student is supposed to be picked up instead of going home on the bus! This is going to be a life saver. I love that it’s magnetic so I can write on it and attach notes. I had to use my magnetic flowers that I made a few weeks ago!
Notes on Vinyl:
-The vinyl I used is from Joann’s.
-I cut the vinyl with my Cricut.
-Plan on messing up. It’s going to happen and there is no avoiding it.
-Buy CLEAR transfer material with gridlines, it’s worth it! My opaque material was very hard to work with because I couldn’t place it exactly where I wanted it since I couldn’t see through it.
-Cut one time only. I tried cutting twice and the vinyl lifted during the second cut.
-Using text smaller than 1 inch is especially tricky.
-Don’t be like me, look up a tutorial before doing it. I went in blindly and I was trying to figure everything out as I went along. I’m sure it would have been much easier if I had seen someone do it and explain how to do it.
I was hoping to get a couple more things done, but they will have to wait till next week. Now head over to 4th Grade Frolics and check out everyone’s projects for Monday Made It!
