Trick or Treat Vinyl Project



I love Halloween Month (aka October) and I am super excited to be here on The Bug Bytes today!!  This is Lori from Scrappin' My Stress Away with a fun little Halloween vinyl project!



I started with a 4x12 piece of staple back canvas from Michaels.  I painted it with orange acrylic paint.


Next, I got out my gypsy to find my Halloween phrase.
I used this phrase from Happy Hauntings and sized it to 11.39 width x 3.59 height.


I wanted a purple spider, so I copied and pasted the phrase and used Hide Contour to hide the "Trick" and "Treat" and moved the "or" to the bottom left quarter of my mat.



When cutting vinyl, I set my Expression to 3-3-3 (speed, pressure and needle depth) for a nice kiss cut.



If you want a more detailed Vinyl tutorial, please go HERE.




I carefully trimmed the spider off the "r" after I weeded the extra vinyl away.



I used my transfer tape to put the purple spider on top of the black spider.



Now my layered vinyl is ready to transfer to my canvas.



I used my black and white Smash Tape to edge the canvas.


This was a fun little project that I will add to my decorations on my entryway table!!


Thanks Pam for having me over today and Happy Halloween Month!!!
