This next project is still using that same silver adhesive vinyl that you saw in the kitchen canister project. For awhile I was running solely with silver, but have since expanded and gotten a few new rolls. Aka: Can't wait to craft more!! I have a nice black leather (probably faux leather? I dunno) cover for my kindle reader, but was feeling it was a bit boring. So I decided to use my kindle to cut out a few decals to dress it up.
2. Cut a piece of transfer paper (the paper w/red grid lines below) large enough to cover your vinyl design and carefully apply it tacky side down onto your vinyl.
3. Rub a popsicle stick over your design to ensure the transfer paper is attached to the vinyl in all places before (4.) peeling the transfer paper (now with your vinyl attached) off of the white backing paper.
5.Apply the transfer paper onto the designated location (kindle's front cover in my case) and again use your Popsicle stick to rub everything gently into place.
6. Finally, peel away the red grid lined transfer paper to reveal your final design. The vinyl should be able to be peeled up at any time that you'd wish to change the design. I used the chevron pattern on the front cover of my kindle to test how easy things would be. The back decal is much more intricate because this was a super easy process.
This 'hello beautiful' scrolled quote was one of the pre-loaded images on my silhouette software. Since the chevron was so easy, I wanted to see how hard something so intricate might be. The answer: slightly more difficult but very manageable! It's been holding up well to daily abuse being carried back and forth to work and the vinyl shows no signs of peeling at all! LOVE IT!
