Make Paper Craft Projects with Vinyl

Did you know you can add adhesive vinyl to paper cards and other paper projects?

For this framed paper sign, we created the design using a design in the Handwritten Wedding Mini SVG Bundle from the So Fontsy June 2019 Bundle.

Cut the vinyl design as you normally would and weed away the excess vinyl.  You can use Oracal 651 or Oracal 631 vinyl for paper projects.

Use light tack transfer tape to pick up the vinyl design off the backing. Position it over the paper and apply. Burnish the vinyl decal through the transfer tape to get the vinyl to stick to the paper.

Remove the transfer tape at an angle.

Place the paper into a frame and you’ve created yourself a beautiful custom sign. This technique can also be used for card, scrapbook pages, or other paper projects!

5 TIPS YOU NEED TO KNOW: HOW TO CREATE MOCK UPS IN SILHOUETTE STUDIO THAT SELL

silhouette studio mock ups so fontsy

Mock Up photos help sell physical goods and digital designs by letting potential customers ‘see’ the finished product without you actually creating it first.  Put it to you this way…which of the above sets do you think sells more?

Craft mock ups are a huge help in selling digital products as well allowing designers to show examples of how their cut files can be used.  These five tips will help you take your mock up game to the next level so you can sell more – and at a higher price!

Before we even into how to create mock ups in Silhouette Studio – a warning. Always make sure you have mastered how to make the actual product you’re selling. It’s great if you can make that custom shirt made with HTV look good on a mock up, but if the HTV is peeling off the finished product because you haven’t yet mastered heat transfer vinyl…that’s false advertising and the quickest way to kill your Silhouette business.
