Cutting a Plaque

cutting a plaque

The last few weekends I have been working on a prototype plaque for an organization.  I made a vinyl stencil, scroll-sawed around it, then masked off the edges and painted.  I need to get a laser cutter, I could crank these out in minutes.  This is just a process shot I took while cutting.

Tennessee Decals

Last post for the weekend, I made some more state shaped Home stickers on a 1′ x 2′ sheet of vinyl I had.  Designed in Inkscape and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  Vinyl from here.

I’ve also added a new guardian to my desk to ensure my boys aren’t eating anything when they use my computer.  I’m worried what shenanigans these two might get into though when no one is looking.

My buddy back home sent my the finished picture of a painted sign he did for a relative.  He found inspiration on the internet and I helped with the vinyl.

Seven Square Meals a Day

Some good friends of ours saw a cool Hobbit kitchen sign online that they liked, so I recreated a vinyl sticker for them.  I also made some masks for cutting the top and bottom of the board to match.

My sister-in-law is a crafty knitter and painter, and she asked me to make version of my nerdy roger for her.  I cut out a couple of stickers in different sizes and colors.

Minion Jewelry Hanger

For Christmas, I made my wife a jewelry hanger with a vinyl initial on the front.  Her sister had asked me to make her one too, and I took just a smidge of creative license.

Sweetie Pie Shirt

My wife had another cute shirt idea for her friend’s little girl, so I got to play around with some heat-transfer vinyl this weekend.  In all, it was fairly straight forward, though the silhouette brand’s instructions for how long to apply the iron seemed a little excessive.  The silhouette brand vinyl was also pretty expensive, ~$15 for 9″ x 36″.  I’ll have to see if I can find a slightly bigger size at a better bargain at signwarehouse.com

UPDATE (7-23-2013): I got an action shot of the little lady enjoying her custom shirt!
