I am sharing a project that was done using a cutting machine, vinyl, and glass Jars. I love my Silhouette Cameo 2.
This last fall I purchased some cute colored glass jars from the Dollar Store. They have polka dot metal lids with striped plastic straws attached. I thought that I might use the jars for an oil lantern project. But, I haven’t gotten around to that project yet. So instead, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my initials and put them on a couple of the jars. I like to have a drink with me at work. The glass has to have a lid and a name on it.
I used my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software to create the letters. I chose the Lori Whitlock Dazzling font from the Silhouette Store and I used Oracal permanent 651 vinyl in teal for the letters. I just love the color teal. I know, I’m a nut.
I measured the design on the front of the jars to get an idea of how big to make the letters. I decided that it measured 1.75″ X 1.75″. Please see the pictures. Use your scaling tool in the software to be more accurate.
After cutting out the letters with the Cameo, trim the vinyl so it’s just surrounding the letters. Next, move them onto the transfer paper.
I had already washed and dried the jars. I removed the backing from the vinyl, weeded the letters, and applied the letters to the target area on the front of the jar. Just use your finger to rub the vinyl onto the glass. The curl on the end of the letter A overlapped a bit, but it doesn’t really matter.
Shazamm! There you go. An easy project that didn’t take too much time or money. You can wash these in the dishwasher. Expressions Vinyl Cameo 3 Bundle Affiliate links included in this post. Please read my policy and disclosure statement.
