Colorful Vinyl Happy Sign Instructions
I went for an overlapping primary colors to create secondary colors look with this project. Using yellow, sky blue and pink transparent adhesive vinyl from StyleTech Craft makes for a great rainbow look.
Using the software that came with my cutting machine, I created circles that have a radius of 1.768 inches. I cut two out in each color, so that I could play around with the order of the circles. Ultimately, I decided to go in a rainbow like order.
To make sure the circles lined up as straight as possible, I cut the gridded transfer tape to the exact length of the sign. Then, I found the middle and started there with the blue circle. I did rearrange them a couple of times, ensuring that there was a good size overlap between each circle.
I used white gloss craft vinyl to cut out the letters. Using the same piece of gridded transfer tape, I adhered each letter individually, using the grid lines to make sure that each one is in line with the rest.
It was important to use a scraper tool to smooth the bubbles out of the vinyl as good as I could. I did have to poke a couple air bubbles with a small pin to get the air out. But you can’t tell.
