school spirit vinyl yard sign

Show support to your teams, student or even business by making your own yard art sign! It is easy to make with your Cricut® machine and permanent vinyl.
Step 1

Measure your plastic corrugated sheet to cut it in half, lengthwise, so it is 15" x 20" [38.1 cm x 50.8 cm]. Draw a light line with a pencil as a guide. Use scissors (or a craft knife) to cut along the line.

Step 2

Now, turn the sign so the 20" [50.8 cm] side is the width. Find the middle and lightly mark it. Place your plastic sign over your wood stake and staple in a few places to attach. Set aside.

Step 3

Design your sign in Cricut® Design Space™. Size to fit your sign.

Step 4

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen.

Step 6

Attach your roll feeder to your machine and feed your first roll into the feeder and Cricut® 3 machine; then follow the prompts to cut out your design. Use the trimmer tool on your feeder to cut the section with your design away from the roll.
TIP: Repeat Step 6 for each mat/layer in your design.

Step 7

Cut around your design with scissors and use your weeder tool to remove excess material from around, and within, your design.


Step 8

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

Step 9

Now, gently peel away the white backer paper and your design should now be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 10

Hold the transfer tape over your surface, to determine where and how you would like it placed; then press it onto your surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it is completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.
TIP: Attach in order by layer. Start with the bottom layer and work up.
