Silhouette SD 

If you aren't already addicted to our Accent it All Vinyl, then I am going to try and sway you to the dark side once more muahahah! With my Silhouette SD it allows you to import JPG/BMP files and trace your images so you can cut your own shapes! My husband's favorite beer company is National Bohemian (Natty Boh for us Maryland'ers) so I decided to create the logo using my Silhouette and Accent it All to make him his very own mugs!

1. To start you'll need some etching cream, mugs, brush and your vinyl
2. Cut your images using your die cutting machine. Be sure to kiss cut your vinyl so the backing stays in place.

3. Using the negative space of your image apply it to your mug/glass. Now you will notice I had to cut my piece. Because my mug has a slight curve in my iamge did not want to lay flat. So I cut it laid it in place then pieced it up with a extra piece of vinyl.

4. Apply a thick coat of etching cream (follow directions on bottle!)
5. Wait 5 mins tick tick tick tick. Rinse off and dry.

1) I cut flowers out using my Cricut Expression selecting sizes ranging from 2 to 3 just depending on the flower. Once all the flowers were cut out, I built and layered the flowers to try out different combinations until I got it just right. (or how I liked it!)

2) Once I knew I liked the flower I removed the backing paper and adhered the vinyl layers together. After the flowers were complete I added them around the center of the glass jar layering them together as I worked around. The flowers encircle the jar so it’s pretty from any angle.
