DT Post by Kate - Vinyl lettering with Metal Dies!


Hello Friends!  Welcome to My Craft Spot!  I'm Kate from Small Bits of Paper and today I am sharing an incredibly easy project with you.  Using the new Small Alphabet metal dies, I ran the letters of my name and the small and large butterflies through my Cuttlebug with Cricut vinyl.  I then adhered the vinyl to my iPad mini and voilà, it was personalized!


Here's a close-up of the vinyl as well as the Small Alphabet metal dies that I used for this project.  (They are upside down/backwards to show you the cutting edges.  My Craft Spot dies cut with a clean, smooth edge every time.)  It took only minutes to complete my project - and now I've got a personalized iPad with a bit of a feminine flair to it.


For those of you with young children, the Small Alphabet metal dies are a must for labelling.  Instead of buying stickers, you can use the dies to create as many labels as you like - and never run out of a particular letter (or be left with letters you do not need).  I have also labelled a number of my youngest son's items, including his electronic gadgets.  So far, the Cricut vinyl I have used has stood the test and stays put!


Check out the My Craft Spot Gallery for more ideas using the Small Alphabet metal dies.  Have a wonderful day!
