Wedding Gift

Well my project for today was almost gone before I snapped a quick photo lol.  Last Saturday was my brother in law and new sister in laws wedding and I had made this picture for them as one of their gifts.  I completely forgot to take a picture of it till after I put the frame back into the box and was ready to wrap.  My excuse for the bad photo, but you can see the end result.  I took burlap and made this monogram from a design from My Vinyl Designer  on my Cricut Explore and added their names and wedding date.  I used heat transfer vinyl and my heat press.  I was not sure how this was going to work, but turned out fine.  I used a 12 x 12 square of burlap that I got at Hobby Lobby and this frame was a 11 x 14 so the inside was 8 x 10.  I positioned the vinyl on the burlap, heated my heat press to 330 degrees and pressed for about 12 seconds.  I then positioned the vinyl on a piece of cardboard to fit just inside the mat of the frame and sprayed some adhesive and secured it.  The picture looks a little sideways, but it was my angle taking the picture in a hurry is the reason.  I am going to make another one of these for a friend since this one worked.  Don't you love it when something goes the way you envisioned it!!!  Join me Tuesday of next week for another project.  I got a couple new cartridges to share some new projects.  We have a big week coming up the week of October 20 so be sure to keep watching.  Details coming soon!!!
