CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • two colors of coordinating vinyl
  • polyurethane sealer
  • Minwax

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using CCR, choose cross & kiss cut at 3.5 inches on vinyl. I made a set of four coasters and because I used two colors, I had to cut my image 4 times in one color and 4 times in the second color.
Weed all vinyl, I wanted my cross to be brown & the embellishment red so I removed the red cross from the design and replaced it with the brown cross. I just lifted the red cross, laid it on a sheet of wax paper, then using tweezers I added my brown cross to the center of this design. Now I have another set in opposite colors too!
After centering, I used transfer tape to place the design onto the tile. Because I used a tumbled marble tile, there were some "pits" and texture on my tile, to add texture to my design I placed the tiles in the oven on 350 for two or three minutes to allow my vinyl to "melt" into the pitted spots.
Once the tile cooled, I coated each tile with 2 coats of polyurethane for a shiny and durable finish. I let this dry for about 24 hours, then rubbed all tiles with Minwax to prevent moisture from sweating glasses. Add felt pads to the bottom and you have a nice housewarming gift!

I love to make coasters, but had never thought of using my Cricut and vinyl! Thanks so much for the inspiration. The possibilities are endless with this one! - Dez :)
