Anyway, so I was talking to my sister and she said she wanted to learn how to dress of Dollar Store cups with vinyl. I will say, there are some great video tutorials on You Tube that discuss all you ever need to know about vinyl. But here it goes....
I found this cup at Dollar Tree. I loved the citrus is was already decorated with and thought a flower would be perfect. I am using Nic Squirrell's Sunflower. I am sending this one to my sister - we have a thing about sunflowers - it's like saying "you are my sunshine."
OK here's how... and please don't cringe at my dry, wrinkly hands. They aren't normally like this, but lotions are a big no-no with this craft.
Step 1 - Start with some cups
Step 2 - After washing them thoroughly, wipe surface with alcohol
Step 3 - Arrange your images on your digital cutting mat
Step 4 - Cut your vinyl down to size, if you cut on a mat like I do
Step 5 - Apply transfer paper to your prepared design.
Step 6 - Apply to surface of cup, burnish well, peel off transfer tape carefully
Tips: When removing the vinyl to expose your images, remove carefully, you just might lose some images. Ask me how I know. Use a needle when wicking out tiny pieces. Be patient with this part, you'll be happier with the results.
Here are a couple others I did using Nic Squirrells Layered Butterfly Papercut, Leaf and Flower Border and Samantha Walker's font Perfect Susan font.
OK - I'm off to my friends pool and to break these cups in right!
