Teacher & Lollipop Woman Gifts using DCWV and Xyron

A quick post today to share with you a couple of gifts that I made for my Son's teacher and the Lollipop Woman.  I bought the frames from IKEA and the paper used is the 'School Days' & 'Edumacation' 12 x 12 pads from DCWV.  Of course all this came together with my trusty Xyron Adhesive Products.  I struggled to find a cutting file for a lollipop Woman (Working on design of my own) so I used a vector image from the web.  The quote was downloaded and cut from the Silhouette Studio Library.

How it's Made

Using the back of the frame as a base start by adding the bottom layer of paper using the Xyron Mega Runner.

Next cut some of the apple print paper and apply to the top of the base board.

In the center using the Xyron Mega Runner place the full sheet of green chevron patterned paper.

Cut out the full quote on red vinyl.

Next modify the cutting file on screen to leave only the eternity and influence words and cut out. Then do the same for the 'Teacher' word

I deliberately cut the vinyl on a '3' blade setting so that it would leave behind a mark on the backing sheet to help with the placement of the replacement words.  Weed away the unwanted words.

Prepare the vinyl words for transfer.

Line up and place onto the red vinyl carrier sheet.  Add more lifting tape.

Remove the vinyl lettering from it's backing sheet and place onto the project, making sure it it centered correctly then smooth out. Slowly remove the transfer tape and place the project into the frame.

The final result.  So quick and a gift for teacher to treasure.

Xyron products are available in the UK through Crafter's Companion
