Using Your Cricut Cutting Machine For Personalization

Personalizing gifts and home decor can be very easy when you are using your Cricut. For best results make sure to use the correct vinyl for each project. 

Matte Removable Vinyl is great for walls and home decor.

Transparent Glitter Vinyl is perfect for glassware and mirrors. 

Permanent Glossy Vinyl is the best choice for car decals and projects that you don’t plan to change.

Polished Metal Vinyl is just right when you want something permanent with a bit of an edge and polished shine.  

When cutting vinyl, always use a sharp blade and a clean mat. This applies to any cutting machine, not just your Cricut. Vinyl is thin and can tare if not cut properly. Follow the manufactures instructions for different types of vinyl.

Supplies Needed:

How To:

Start by making your quote, saying, or personalization in Cricut Design Space. I wanted to say something catchy since it was going on a hammer. “Dad, Thanks for helping me build my life” was just right. 

On the opposite side, I went more traditional with “Happy Father’s Day 2019”

The font I used was AR Julian which I believe is a system font, not a design space font.

Make sure to measure your hammer and adjust the font size to fit. Mine was 9 inches long and just over 1 inch wide. Both phrases fit perfectly. 

I cut my father’s day quotes using StyleTech Craft Polished Metal Vinyl. The look is sleek and more manly than glitter vinyl don’t ya think?

How To Apply The Vinyl

Once your phrase is cut and weeded, apply your transfer paper to the whole design. Use your scraper tool to make sure the vinyl sticks to the transfer tape really well before pulling it from the backing.

Remove the backing and transfer your design to the handle of the hammer.

Give it a good press, just to be sure there are no edges lifting or pieces out of place. The polished metal vinyl is a bright metallic-looking film that will add a shine and a pop to the hammer. (It is also available in THIRTEEN different colors!)
