A little while back I posted this on The Expressions Vinyl Blog. I am one of their blog contributors but also a huge fan of Expressions vinyl and I love their products and was so excited when they asked me to share some of my favorite projects made using their wonderful vinyl.
I don’t know about you or where you live, but I am in Tampa Florida and in the summer it rains everyday! You can get pretty tired of ruining your shoes stepping into a huge puddle. Needless to say I wear rain boots all the time. I picked up a few colors of plain rain boots on sale and wore them but something was missing. They needed some PIZZAZZ! So what better way to make them fun than by adding some polka dots using my Expressions vinyl and my Silhouette SD machine!
I programmed my Silhouette SD to cut out round circles in a desired size and then I place my 9×24 piece of vinyl inside and started to cut. I cut 24 yellow polka dots and 24 white polka dots. You can transfer with transfer tape or, like I did, I just individually peeled them by hand so that I can place each polka dot at random on the boots. Make sure you secure vinyl onto boots and got any air bubbles out.
The reason I LOVE this project for a beginner user of vinyl is that you really don’t need to use a vinyl cutter if you don’t have one. You can actually use a circle punch in a 2 or 3 inch size!
Looks much better with the polka dots, doesn’t it? Something is still missing, how about we add matching bows!
Now they’re perfect! I am very pleased with how they turned out! What do you think?
