Monograms with Vinyl

I have been having so much fun with my Silhouette and vinyl. I decided to make some monograms and see how it went.

Once I used the software to design the monogram, there were some more steps than just peel and stick, especially with such small parts.

First, I peeled off the extra part of the vinyl that I wouldn’t need.

Next, I placed the monogram face-down on the sticky side of contact paper. The contact paper will act as a way to transfer the monogram to the item.

Then I used a card as a scraper to get out any air bubbles.

When you are ready to transfer the monogram onto the item, peel off the back of the vinyl.

Stick the contact paper/vinyl onto the item (for me, I was monogramming my Cameo).

Use the card/scraper to make it stick.

Carefully pull off the contact/transfer paper.

Put pressure on the monogram to make sure it stays down.
