Cutting Vinyl with the Cricut

CricutVinylClass1Hi all!  Hope you are having a great week so far!

Today I have 2 projects that I made for our Cricut Vinyl class.  I taught this class a couple of months ago, and these are just two projects that I showed off.  These aren't the actual projects we completed in class, but just something to get your creative juices flowing!  :)

The project here on the left is one of those glass blocks you can get from Simply Said, Hobby Lobby, etc.  The nice thing about this one is that the hole is already drilled for you.  I don't have it filled yet as I'm waiting to give it away sometime.  I'll fill it with something baby-related for a shower gift or something.  Then, I'll take a nice thick ribbon and wrap it around the wides with a nice big bow on the top.

I created this with some special glass etching vinyl we have available by the foot at the store.  Instead of messing around with glass etching cream, I just cut this out of this vinyl.  I cut a square out of the vinyl for the glass size.  Then I put it on my Cricut mat.  I found the center of the square and cut out the image using the Center Point function key.  That way I knew my image was in the middle of the square.  I used the "negative" part of the image so the clear part would be the image that was actually cut out.

CricutVinylClass2 This next project is a little glass that I found on the shelves in Wal-Mart in the floral department.  I think it would be cute in the bathroom, holding toothbrushes.  This one uses the positive image of the cut.

Both of these cuts came from the Child's Year cartridge.
