teacher's rotating desk crate

This rotating desk organiser is perfect for a teacher's desk to keep all of her supplies within reach. Paint the small crates and add some fun icons to match your classroom!
Step 1

Paint each of the crates, inside and out, with acrylic paint. Let dry.

Step 2

Now, arrange them as shown onto the turntable. Glue into place. Set aside to let the glue dry.

Step 3

To cut out the icons for the crates, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 4

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

Step 5

Place the 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 6

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 7

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 8

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

Step 9

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 and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.
