Afraid to use etching cream? Me too, that’s why I love Cricut’s new Frosted Permanent Vinyl! Dress your glasses with beautiful dainty designs using frosted vinyl.
1: Open Project Instructions
2: Cut the Vinyl
Load your frosted vinyl and let the Cricut Maker do the rest!
Use a sharp hook Cricut® Tools Weeder.
4: Transfer Your Design
Using Cricut® Transfer Tape, transfer your image onto the glass. Begin by trimming a piece of transfer tape to fit your vinyl image. Stick the transfer tape over your entire image and use your scraper to burnish the tape onto the vinyl pieces.
Peel up one corner of the transfer tape and gently pull until the tape is off the liner. Place the transfer tape and vinyl onto glass and burnish on with your scraper tool.
Tips for working on curved surfaces:
- Cut small slits from the top of the transfer tape going down, and from the bottom of the transfer tape going up to get it to wrap around the glass without puckering too much.
- If the vinyl is puckering, use a heat gun in small amounts. The vinyl will shrink slightly.
When it is all on, peel off the transfer tape and enjoy drinking out of this darling glass!
