What you need for this project!
First, download the free svg and pull it into your editing software. I use the designer edition of silhouette studio. Don't have the Designer edition, upgrade here! The Designer upgrade will allow you upload SVGs, this will save you so much headache and frustration.
Once the File is uploaded, size it to exactly 1" wide. Then, personalize your pencil if you want. In my specific project I used a font my son wrote out called Dear Santa.
I find that it is easiest to double side tape the transfer tape to the work station and place the blank downward towards the vinyl each time.

I don't know about you but my ribbon storage was absolutely out of control, until now!
Don't have time to create this now? Pin it for later!
What will you need for this project??
First, you will want to cut all the pieces of the design out. I had to do a bit of rotating and rearranging to allow my pieces to cut in the Glowforge program. I also had to break up the and do two cuts to get all the pieces made. (Note: on my second cut I have a square, you will only need to cut this part of design if you want to make the boxes stackable.)
Second, you will want to lay out all your pieces for assembly. This is very important! If they are not laid out correctly you may find errors at the end when it is all assembled.
Third, glue and clamp the side pieces together. Double check that you are glueing this to the inside of the box. (This side would be facing up in the image above)
This is also, where you will glue on the base rectangle, if you will want to stack the boxes. Note: the rectangle will go on the outside/bottom of the box. (This side would be facing down in the image above)
Notice: the pieces are NOT glued on the notches of the box.
Fourth, time to assemble. Grab your hammer and gently tap the box together. It should fit snuggly together.
Tip: for added strength add a few drops of glue.
After the box is put together it is time for the wooden dowel rod. Cut your dowel rod to 8.75" and slide it in the notches to test the fit.
Last but not least add your ribbon, step back and see what you have just created or make more and more!

Hello my laser loving and vinyl loving friends! I created this laser cut vinyl storage for all of the people looking for a storage solution that is not a bag holder.
What I love about this storage solution is that it has a low profile, sitting only about 3" off the wall! It is 18" tall and 5" wide with the holes being about 1.75". It can hold 10 vinyl rolls that are anywhere from 6" to 24+" wide.
Make multiple and hang together to make a seamless design. (I made two and have room for more!)

Now that you have the file, let's get started!
What you need for this project:
Once you have it assembled, on to painting it! I chose a boring but functional grey! Next, I attached it (well had my husband attach it) to the wall with the screws.
And voilà..... time to add your unorganized vinyl and show off your creation!
What color did you paint yours? Comment below, I want to know!
If you are reading this you want to know the secrets on creating a 1 layer/1 color design to a multiple layer/color design in Cricut design Space... shhh... don't tell anyone. Just Kidding scream it from the mountain tops, this will change your Cricut game!
First you need a design. For this example I use my FREE love heart design you can find here!
And just like you have created a multi-colored design from a plain one color, one layered design! Way to go!

The things you need for this project are:
One you have all you materials together you will want to upload the sports ball(s), of your choice, into your cutting software. Whether it be silhouette studio, Cricut design space, or some other program. You will want to size the outer part of the circle right below 2". Mine were right at about 1.8". Next, you will want to cut, weed, and apply transfer tape.
Then, you will want to transfer the vinyl to your rounds. Once carefully transferred, I used a small utility knife to cut the vinyl where the hole is.
And last but not least you will want to attach the keychain hardware! Now wasn't that just easy peasy!
To add a bit more to your keychain, add a name, number, monogram, or more!

If you are reading this you are here to find out how to start sublimating for a reasonable price, right?
Below I will list (with affiliate links*) all that you need to get started sublimating, right away! All for about $500, now doesn't that sound fabulous?!
*Affiliate links won't cost you any more, it will just allow me a small commission for the referral!
Okay so now you have the printer, ink, & paper... you will now need heat!
A heat press is a must when sublimating. It will allow your print to have even pressure and print, which is very important to get a great transfer.
There are multiple Press options. I will list just two for you. You can find a decent Press for anywhere between $100-200. (Great thing is they can be used for vinyl too and the occasional ironing of clothes, lol)
Already have a heat press for HTV? There is no reason to get a new one, just so long it heats up and has pressure you are good to go!
Last but not least you will need blanks. When looking for blanks make sure they are 100% polyester or polyester coated items. You can find an array of items that can be sublimated! Some great places to purchase blanks are Coastal Business Supply, Conde, and JDS.
Just to name a few:
I hope this helps you get started with sublimation on a budget... any questions or comments, leave them below.

So, I have been struggling with a good way to store my acrylic paints. I feel like they have always been a mess and extremely hard to find the colors I have. As you can see below, I have bought the same colors multiple times, not even meaning to.
So first I began by creating the file, if you will be just using my FREE file you can skip this part.
After all of my pieces were cut.
Whooo... you made it to the end! Now all that is left is to put your paint in and admire your work! Make one, two, or twenty!
'G' this is such a fun letter for lettering. So many ways to letter it! I probably could have kept going, but I ran out of space!
What is your favorite letter? I think mine be G, K, R, and S and maybe A. Those are all so fun to letter!
