Finally! I can't believe that I have finally found glass cutting boards at the Dollar Tree! And right now I'm in a bit of vinyl heaven. I have been wanting to create decorated cutting boards for months but my local store has had the boards. Well last weekend I asked my hubby to take me to the next town over so I could check out their stores and just as I was about to give up, there they were, kind of hidden on the back wall (instead of with the glass ware). I picked up a dozen - 6 round and 6 square, but even that wasn't enough because I had my daughter pick up more for me yesterday.
I have several designs to play with but today I want to share this one I used from Apex Cuttable Designs. This file is called Wine Holiday Workout and it comes with four different versions - two of which I am show casing today. These were great files to work with. They cut like butter and placement was easy as can be.
Creating these boards was easy too. They're both 7 3/4" boards so I cut the designs around 6 inches so that I'd have plenty of room to clear the feet with my designs. While the design was cutting I wiped the backside of the board down with alcohol to remove any dirt or residue that would cause the vinyl not to adhere and once dry I applied the vinyl. And now I have great looking cutting boards. Just remember that if you're working with glass or using this design for a shirt to mirror the image before cutting. I have to admit that since this was my first cutting board I forgot to do that when I cut the round design the first time.
Now my only 'problem' is deciding what design/s to play with next.
