In case you missed it, I shared this tutorial last week over at The CSI Project for their typography week. This was such a fun, quick and easy project – totally doable in the span of an hour!
step 3 Use your die cutting machine to format the following lettering and symbols to cut from your vinyl:
Play around with different sizing and fonts until you achieve a look your like. The fun here comes in mixing and matching different typefaces! I used Courier New (sweet), Engravers (be), and Lobster (gotten). Once you are satisfied, refer to your respective machine’s instruction manual for the appropriate settings to cut your lettering from your vinyl.
step 4 Cut your patterned paper down to 8×10, and place it in your frame. Use your transfer paper to adhere your vinyl lettering and symbols to the glass front of your frame as shown. Place foam dots on the back of your fabric numbers, and adhere them as shown. For added dimension, I stacked two layers of dots on the back of the number four to give it an extra boost. Now, tie a bow from a length of ribbon, and adhere it with foam dots to the top corner of your frame.
