Now that November is here it's time to get cracking on all those Christmas gifts we need to get made. Some of my boys are die hard comic fans and so when I saw this awesome Superhero file at Apex Cuttables I knew I had to have it. There are seven heroes included in the file and these are just three of them.
The way that these designs are done they'd be perfect for use on glass blocks, jars, car decal, t-shirts (which I hope to be able to do next month) and night lights like I've done. Why you could even use these to decorate stockings for Christmas.
These are night lights from the Dollar Tree. They call them fashion night lights because initially the round cover has a printed graphic. But with a minimal amount of swirling the cover around in some acetone nail polish and light rubbing with a paper towel or cotton ball, the graphic is easily removed. After removing the graphic I wash my covers with dish soap and allow to dry. (IMPORTANT: Do NOT allow the cover to sit still in the acetone as it will cause the plastic cover to "melt")
While the covers dry I find the design I want and cut from vinyl. (I use the permanent Oracal 651 from Vinyl Spectrum)
And now I have a fun, made from the heart stocking stuffer item for my boy's this Christmas. It doesn't get much easier than this.
