{Silhouette Project} His + Hers



Today's project uses the Frosted Vinyl from Silhouette and the Victorian Lace Label from their online store.


step one... Open a new project and change the width to 13.750 and the height to 9.00. Open the Victorian Lace Label shape and drag the corner until the shape measures 11.975 x 7.735.


step two... Using the Broadcast font, type out HIS and drag the corner until the size is 6.830 x 4.130. (Or just change the text size to 243.6pt.)


step three... cut the shape out 

After cutting out the HIS, I just switched it to HERS and changed the width by dragging the side until it measured 8.660.


step four... remove the excess vinyl

After you've removed the negetive space,
lay your transfer paper over the vinyl and rub with an old credit card.

step five... peel off the transfer tape

Now you have the transfer paper with the vinyl image stuck to it and it's ready to put up!
Then just place the image where you want it and rub with the credit card again.
and there you have it...
His + Hers sinks!!
you could do this with your kids names in their bathroom too!  :)
