Personalised Fathers Day Frame – Cricut Project. This was originally designed and made as a gift for my father. I never know what to buy him so I came up with this idea and it turned out lovely.

This would make a great personalised gift for any occasion i.e. Fathers Day, Birthdays, Christmas etc. You could also make a female version too.

To clarify, this project was created on a Cricut Maker.

Materials

Firstly, you will need:

Cricut Maker – Shop Cricut

Cricut Design Space – Cricut Design Space™

You will need a shadow box frame. The frame shown in the pictures for example, is a grey 18cm x 18cm shadow box frame. Here is the link:

Also, you will need silver/charcoal glitter cardstock for the background. Here is the link to the one used in this project:

Furthermore, you will also need a 18cm piece of permanent vinyl for this project. This is the link for the vinyl I have used in this project (I used a white sheet out of this pack)

Process

Firstly, you will need a Cricut Maker machine and the design. The design is a saved project of mine in Cricut Design Space. However, to access this you may need a Cricut Access subscription. This is my link for the project:

Load the project onto Personalised Fathers Day Frame

Make it

Start the project by loading the Cricut machine with the mat and cardstock then press MAKE IT. Once completed, remove the mat and load the next mat with the white vinyl sheet. Before cutting the vinyl, check the MIRROR box then press MAKE IT.

As soon as the Cricut has finished cutting, eject the mat and carefully remove the cut vinyl sheet. At this stage you can proceed to weed your design.

TIP: for small writing, intricate designs etc. place transfer tape over the whole design before weeding it. Turn the design over, take the backing paper off and weed straight off of the transfer sheet. As a result this keeps all the tiny letters firmly stuck down and stops them moving about.

To Finish

Start with opening the shadow box frame and carefully take the glass front out. Make sure it is clean, as any dust or smears may prevent the vinyl from adhering.

Then place the vinyl and transfer sheet centrally on the glass, burnish and remove transfer sheet carefully. Making sure all letters, including full stops and hearts, have adhered to the glass. Wipe over the glass with a lint free cloth to remove any smears or dust.

Replace the glass back into the frame then follow with the inner frame. Place the glitter square box cardstock cut out (background). Finally, attach the back of the shadow box frame.

All done! I hope you have enjoyed this project, let me know how yours turns out. Please leave a comment or contact me if you have any issues.

Lockdown Christmas Acrylic Ornament

Lockdown Christmas Acrylic Ornament 2020 – sublimation printed. The digital design used was created by Beejui Creations on the Affinity Designer program.

These were popular and a great reminder of our first ever Christmas spent in lockdown 2020. Hopefully though, Christmas’s going forward will not be like 2020 without seeing all our family and loved ones. I hope this ornament will act as a reminder to cherish each and every moment surrounded by our loved ones at Christmas time.

Lockdown Christmas Acrylic Ornament

Sublimation Process:

Firstly you will need a Sublimation Acrylic Blank. Please make sure the acrylic is cast not extruded as extruded does not work with the sublimation process. The ones shown in the pictures for example are 8cm Acrylic 3mm thick discs in white from Woodform Crafts. Here is the link: 

https://www.woodformcrafts.co.uk/product/10-x-white-acrylic-8cm-hanging-circle-wc1061/

Secondly you will need a design to print. You can use any design you like but for the above I designed my own PNG file in Affinity designer. Once you have picked a design, print it out and tape the design onto the acrylic blank using heat tape. Then use a heat press to set the design onto the acrylic circle.

The heat settings I use for this are 180C for 180sec. When the heat press has finished, place the acrylic under a heavy object until it is cool. This will prevent the acrylic from warping. Also just to add, the sub paper sometimes sticks to the acrylic or leaves a dull finish. Therefore, to remove this use a washing up sponge, warm water and scrub the printed surface, this should fix it.

Lastly, you will need approximately 15cm of ribbon or cord to make the hanger for your ornament. I prefer the cord for a neater finish so I used cord from Hobbycraft, link below.

Secondly, you will need a Cricut machine –Shop Cricut and the design required for this is in Cricut Design Space – Cricut Design Space™. Subsequently, to access this you will need a Cricut Access subscription. This is the link for the file required:

As soon as you have loaded the design, you can customize it more and add in text for the names and extra hearts etc.

Before clicking ‘Make it’ hide the 8cm back circle and select all of the design, then WELD.

This design uses timberly script font but if you do not have you can choose a font available to you. Or purchase the font from https://fontbundles.net/bundles (this was free on 25.02.21).

Process

Start the project by loading the Cricut machine with the mat and vinyl then press start to cut. Above all please make sure that you use the correct material settings for the vinyl being used.

As soon as the Cricut has finished cutting, eject the mat and carefully remove the cut vinyl sheet. At this stage you can proceed to weed your design.

TIP: for small writing, intricate designs etc. place transfer tape over the whole design before weeding it. Turn the design over, take the backing paper off and weed straight off of the transfer sheet. As a result this keeps all the tiny letters firmly stuck down and stops them moving about.

Lastly, you will need approximately 15cm of ribbon or cord to make the hanger for your ornament. I prefer the cord for a neater finish, link for this is below.
