cricut® words to live by chalkboard

Who says you can't inspire yourself? This personalized chalkboard provides the perfect space for jotting down daily reminders and words of encouragement! 
Step 1

Cut out the vinyl for the words and embellishments using your Cricut® machine:

  • First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
  • Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.
  • Place the 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 2
Use scissors to cut out your design. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative space surrounding design. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.
Step 3
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 4
Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.
Step 5
Hold the transfer tape with the design over your surface, to determine where you’d like it placed; then press it onto your surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface. Gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.
Step 6
Finally, use a chalk marker to write your saying. Let dry.
