I'm pretty excited and just have to share.....My very first tutorial for Peppermint Creative has been posted on the Peppermint Creative Blog.
Yeah....New Vectors at Peppermint Creative. I love vectors and of course I already have some new ones picked out. They are GREAT if you have a cutting machine (my favorite is the Silhouette Cameo...I'd like to get a portrait) and like to make projects with vinyl.
Commercial Vectors on sale 20% off right now at Peppermint Creative until May 22nd. Check out the NEW RELEASES!

Step 2: After cutting the vinyl out with the Silhouette Cameo, “weed” out the excess vinyl. Weeding is the process of removing extra vinyl bits around the graphic. You can use a special weeding tool to make the job easier without damaging or tearing your finished artwork.
Step 4: Using the scraper press down the tape and make sure that it is smoothed out and sticking to the vinyl.
Step 5: Once this vinyl is completely stuck to the transfer tape, apply it to your dried door hanger.
Step 6: Use the scrapper again to apply it to the hanger. Remove transfer tape.
