initial wood candle lid

Personalize this wood candle top with a beautiful initial. It's the perfect gift for a friend.
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™ or alter the design to make it your initial.

Step 2

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 3

Place the layer of vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ as 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 4

Use scissors to cut away the vinyl around your design. 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 5

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 6

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

Step 7

Hold the transfer tape with the design over your surface to determine where you’d like it placed. Make sure it is centered and straight; then press it onto your surface. 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.
