I am excited to have another post in this series. I wanted to use the vinyl I had gotten with the Cameo, so I did an easy project a couple days after Christmas. The boys have a plastic bin in their room on their bookshelf for library books we get from the school. I had labeled it with my label maker but I though using the vinyl would be fun and cute.
So, I pulled out my vinyl and cut off a little bit and put it on the mat and loaded it up:
then it started working.
Here it is all finished on the mat.
I decided to use the outline instead of the letters because the ‘s’ got stuck and all messed up.
I had to carefully pick out the middle of the letters to put in the outline.
I tried cutting it out again with just the vinyl paper to see how that worked. It went well and I didn’t loose the ‘s’ this time:)
I cut out the area around my words and peeled off the outside vinyl. I was left with the words, and a few of the insides:P I cut out some of my transfer paper I got with my Cameo and smoothed it over the vinyl letters like the above picture.
I pulled off the sheet of paper that was on the back of the vinyl paper and the words stuck to the transfer paper great!:)
Then I transferred the words over to the bin and smoothed it all down with a hard object.
And TADA! there I have my words on the bin! It was a little stressful getting them to stay down. I think the letters were too thin and then mix that with the texture of the bin and it wasn’t wanting to stick well.
So, I decided to do a thicker text and used that:
I lost the ‘a’ somewhere between transporting the bin back to it’s spot and my desk so I just scrapped that handwriting. I am really happy with the results!!:
It looks so fun and exciting sitting on the shelf now. Am I wierd? lol
And because I’m so weird and I can’t waste anything I had to put the outline on the side:
And I kept the first outline on the back, in case we want to change it up a bit:)
SO That is my first vinyl project with my Cameo. I love it!! I can’t wait to do more! I have a love of ideas so I really need to get them all organized and figure out what I’m going to do next! Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again! Let me know what you think.

That’s a great way of not losing all your library books like we keep doing around here.
This came out so nice! Great for organization!! Thanks for sharing at my party. Can’t wait to see what you link up next week!
