cricut® personalized pencil box

Personalize a pencil box with a funny face that will make you smile every time you need a pen or pencil!
Step 1

First, create the name in Cricut® Design Space™. Click on the 'Text' icon in the left panel, type the name and chose your font; then size to fit your pencil box.

Step 2

Place your vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat.

Step 3

Use scissors to cut away the vinyl around your image/name. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative space surrounding the initial and name. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.

Step 4

Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than the design. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over this part of the design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 5

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 6

Hold the transfer tape with the name over the pencil box to determine where you’d like it placed. Make sure it is centered and straight; then press it onto the pencil box. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.

Step 7
Embellish your pencil box with fun face foam stickers.
