STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

First, I created the design using Cricut Craft Room until I was satisfied with how it looked. By all means, you can choose different accents or fonts for your project as you wish.
The next thing I did was sand the 12x24 Birch Plywood so that there would be no rough or uneven pieces of wood. Then using glossy, black, acrylic paint with a foam brush, I painted the wood and let it dry. :)
Using my 12x24 sheet of matte white vinyl, I loaded up my Cricut Expressions and hit "Cut". :)
When the design was finished being cut, I unloaded my Expressions. Then I used my X-ACTO knife to weed all the little pieces from the design.
I prepared the clear contact paper. Now I'm sure some of you may be reading this and asking what the heck I was using contact paper for. It works EXACTLY like transfer paper and you can buy a HUGE roll of it for cheap! But I digress - I peeled the backing off of the contact paper. (If it's too sticky, you can stick it to something like your couch or your clothes to fix that). I then I placed the contact paper on to the design and rubbed it all over using a large popsicle stick.
Slowly pull up the contact/transfer paper so you make sure that everything stuck to it. Once you've got your design on the contact/transfer paper, position it on to your project space until you have it perfectly where you want it.
Using the same large popsicle stick (or whatever you prefer to use), rub the contact/transfer paper so that your design sticks.
Slowly remove the contact/transfer paper to make sure everything stuck. Voilà! You're done! Enjoy!
