It’s time for more fun with Silhouette vinyl. There’s also some great deals for Craft Critique readers from Silhouette – and one lucky Craft Critique reader is going to win a Silhouette Cameo machine!
I have been wanting to redo part of the back window of my car since the Apple sticker that I put there 3 years ago had faded beyond recognition. A file I found in the Silhouette store inspired me to add something scrappy as part of my redo.
I measured the Apple sticker (since I wanted to replace the worn one with a new one) to discover the height measurement that I needed to use and then opened the file in Silhouette studio. I resized it to the correct height and then placed the image in the corner to save vinyl when cutting.
Then I peeled and removed the excess vinyl, and applied the transfer paper over the image. It was time to go outside to the car!
I razored the old Apple sticker off, cleaned the window and replaced the sticker with a new one. Then I peeled my transfer paper up and used it to apply my scissors image next to the Apple, pressing firmly!
The results are really fun, and a great record of what I love on my car. I’m wondering how many times I’ll get asked why I have scissors on my car by non-crafters! I think this logo set needs a third item, but haven’t decided yet what to add to it.
White vinyl is a really common look for car stickers – the Silhouette vinyl would be a great way to make custom window stickers for your business, a special occasion, or a special event. Decorate a wedding getaway car with class, or create a one-of-a-kind promo piece!
