I have a confession to make.. I bought a Circut.. and I'm OBSESSED.
To be honest, obsessed is an understatement. I can't get enough of this thing.. and why did no one tell me about this before? My inner DIY goddess is unleashed and I couldn't be more excited about it.
I bought the original Explore Circut machine. I did some investigating and found that the only difference between this Circut machine and the Explore Air 2 was that the newer model just cut 2x faster but was $50 more expensive! So I decided to to go with the older version and save some money for the accessories.
So here is the first project I made.. a DIY Bride Wine Glass.
Design your decal for the glass in the Circut Design Space. You can access this through the app, or on the website. Measure out how large of a decal you can fit onto your glass by counting the squares on the Circut mat. The mat matches the online design space exactly. I love how everything lines up perfectly!
Make sure you have welded the letters together which is found in the bottom right corner of the design space. I also like turning the colour of the image so you can make sure the welding was done perfectly.
Print your decal. I used Circut Adhesive Foil. It actually worked amazing! I really debated using Circut Vinyl but the foil was so pretty compared to the vinyl.
Once you print/cut it. You weed the unwanted areas off the sheet. Be careful not to pull off any of the letters!
Use transfer tape to pull the decal off the paper and put it on your glass so it is perfect. These part takes the longest time for sure.
LOVE IT & ENJOY IT
