In a range of my completed projects using the Brother Scan N Cut I have used Peel Off vinyl sheets to create sentiments or even a complete verse.
Transfering this to the finished project was a little challenging until I remembered Magic Transfer Tape.
Here is a quick run down of how it works and why it is AMAZING!
So image this, you’ve cut an entire verse from Peel Off vinyl sheet and you have to get it off the carrier and onto your project. You peel it gently, you talc your hands, you try not to tangle it and then you have to get it all straight and evenly spaced on your project.
Inevitably something goes wrong, you swear a lot and then throw a paddy. We’ve all done it.
Anyway, I remembered that a long time ago I was introduced to Magic Transfer Tape – this stuff was literaly amazing. It grabs hold of your peel off vinyl, holds it in place and then releases it onto your project perfectly!
Noticed that I am in love with this stuff yet? Lol :)
Anyway, this is how it happens in step by step piccies –
1. Cut your design from the peel off vinyl sheets and then peel away all of the background so that you have just what you want to transfer left.
Then, grab yourself some Magic Transfer Sheet and cut it down to fit over your design.
Peel Off the backing and lay the transparent sheet over your design and rub down over all of the vinyl areas.
Now, GENTLY peel back the tape, putting it back and rubbing again if any of the elements don’t pick up on the first peel (do this as you go – it’ll never line up again after).
Next, take this to your cardstock, glass, ceramics or whatever you are going to put the design on and rub over it again.
Again gently peel back the overlay making sure that each element adheres to your project as you are peeling the sheet back. Top Tip – Be Patient!
Once you’ve finished peeling off the Transfer Sheet you are done!
What a neat trick eh?!
Now, how many things can you all think of using this technique on?
Oh, by the way – I should have given you my suggested settings for cutting vinyl on the Brother Scan N Cut.
FYI I am using the Create and Craft TV Peel Off Vinyl Sheet.
- Cutting Mat: Standard (purple)
- Cutting Blade: Standard (blue)
- Blade Depth: 1
- Blade Pressure: -1
- Cut Speed: Any – smaller designs might benefit from a lower speed.
If you have any questions or comments about this post, or anything that I have waffled on about in it, or would like to suggest an idea of where you could use peel off verses, then please feel free to use the comments box below.
Thank you for reading again and I hoped that you enjoyed this little tip.
See you again soon.
