Patterned Vinyl

Recently, Expressions Vinyl has released so much patterned vinyl goodness.

I mean…I see all these patterns and I can’t stop the ideas from flowing!

(so much) I’ve gotten my hands on a few and even put some buffalo check on top of my kitchenaid

but every time I share about all the fun new patterns –I get asked over and over again “but what do you make with patterned vinyl?” ANSWER: EVERYTHING! But there are a few tips and tricks!

How to use patterned craft vinyl

FIRST nothing too skinny. You lose a lot of the pattern when it’s too small. So think THICK fonts! Lemon milk, rhino, or  bebas nueu  are two of my favorites! Also–another great tip and trick when doing pattern–LAYERING IS YOUR FRIEND! It totally makes the words pop (like here on my pumpkin)


next–optimize placement! Check out this tutorial by expressions vinyl to see how to move your project to place it right on a good pattern!


and sometimes…I basically just keep it as one piece and use it decorate stuff…like  another kitchen aid makeover!

or I wrapped it around the Clorox wipes to make them cute for a good upcycle!


You can also just take your scissors and cut out some of the fun designs Like I did on this cute cake carrier


Now let me show you all the fun project ideas!
