How to Make DIY Christmas Story Sign
STEP 1: Upload Christmas Story SVG and Cut Black Adhesive Vinyl
Download our FREE Christmas Story SVG from our FREE printables library. The link to our FREE printables library is located at the bottom of this page at the end of this tutorial. Gather up all of your supplies and warm up your Cricut Cutting Machine!
If you haven’t already paint your Premade Square Blank Wood Sign Blank with acrylic paint in the colors your prefer. You can use the front side or the backside depending on your personal decor style. One side is flat the other has a frame around it that is easy to paint a contrasting color.
Open up Cricut design space and upload the SVG. Resize the SVG to fit to the size of your Premade Square Blank Wood Sign Blank. Contour out the edge pieces that are red in the final design. We only want to cut the black portions with black vinyl on this run.
Make the cut and weed away the unwanted Black Permanent Adhesive Vinyl areas away from the leg lamp and fra gee lay quote with the Cricut Weeding Tool.
Cut a piece of Transfer Tape that will cover the entire quote and leg lamp. Place the Transfer Tape on the vinyl and run the Cricut Scraping Tool back and forth over the vinyl so it will stick to the transfer tape. Pull the transfer tape away with the quote and leg lamp attached. Set aside.
STEP 2: Cut Red Adhesive Vinyl
Next we want to cut the red adhesive vinyl. Upload the SVG to design space but this time we will contour out the fra gee lay quote and the leg lame. This leaves just the areas we want to be red.
Make the cut. Weed away the unwanted Red Permanent Adhesive Vinyl areas away from the red accent areas of the SVG with the Cricut Weeding Tool. You should be left with just the red flourishes on the vinyl adhesive backing.
Cut a piece of Transfer Tape that will cover the red flourishes. Place the Transfer Tape on the vinyl and run the Cricut Scraping Tool back and forth over the Grinch face so it will stick to the transfer tape. Pull the transfer tape away with the red flourishes attached.
STEP 3: Place Black Vinyl on Sign Blank
Transfer the black portion of the SVG to the Premade 8 x 8 Square Blank Wood Sign Blank. Rub over the image with the Cricut Scraping Tool to transfer the leg lamp and quote. Make any small adjustments with a Cricut Weeding Tool.
STEP 4: Place Red Vinyl on Sign Blank
Transfer the red portion of the SVG to the Premade 8 x 8 Square Blank Wood Sign Blank. Rub over the image face with the Cricut Scraping Tool to transfer the leg lamp and quote. Make any small adjustments with a Cricut Weeding Tool.
