Land of Liberty Framed Vinyl


In light of the recent bombing at the Boston Marathon, I'm grateful to live in a country where such things are NOT common.  When they do happen, we pull together as a country in support of each other-- at least for a little while :).  I know it's a little early, but I'm feeling patriotic.  And of course, we have both Memorial Day and the 4th of July coming up over the summer.  So, you will have plenty of time to make this Vinyl Land of Liberty Sign.


I used Silhoutte's Premium Vinyl in Navy Blue, along with some red I had in my stash, for this project.  I love the premium vinyl- it adheres so well to whatever project I'm using.
Here's a quick and easy tutorial:

1.  If desired paint your frame.  I loved the distressed look of this frame.  The tan one cost $9.99, and the white cost $19.99.  What?!?  I bought the tan and added some white paint, rubbed on with a paper towel, then sanded smooth.  That's an easy $10 savings!  (Plus I used a 40% off coupon to save even more.)


2.  Cut your vinyl.   You can download the .studio file here if you so choose :)



2.  Apply your transfer tape and place your vinyl on the glass of the frame.  Be careful-- I HAVE broken glass this way.
3.  Scrape it firmly to adhere to your surface.  Then remove transfer tape, leaving the vinyl behind.  Don't mind the green folder- I just put it there so you could see the design on the glass.


4.  If you are layering two colors like me, just keep your transfer tape trimmed tight to the shape so you don't have to deal with unnecessary sticking.

5.  Put the glass back into your frame and place a white piece of paper behind it.  Replace the back and
that's it-- easy peasy!  Laura thinks this is minimalist but I kind of like it that way.  Feel free to embellish however you'd like.




If you don't want to make this in vinyl, you can download it as a free printable.  Right click the image to open it in a new tab or window and save it to your computer.  Or click here to download the file.

    In other words, Signs are one of the most foremost vital tools for branding any business. It's not important, how well you market or however renowned your company is, a sign is how you tell peoples where you're, Who you're, and why you should be recognizable. Sign company NYC is most popular signs company..
