Happy Post Valentine’s day everyone! Hopefully it was magical, romantic, and maybe even included a ring in the mix! To toast the celebration, well really to toast at your wedding, I designed these cute and simple wedding flutes. :)
I made my flutes in two colors, Silver Glitter Permanent Adhesive Vinyl and Gold Permanent Adhesive Vinyl and I loved how both turned out! By aligning the transfer tape well in the beginning, it makes the alignment on the glasses nice and easy. :) I would recommend this as a great first project for working with glassware in general, it is not a hard curve to follow as far as transferring goes and the designs themselves are simple and easy to weed. :)
1. After downloading the cut files, import them into the Cricut Software. After creating a new project, select Upload Image. Select the file you wish to upload and it will automatically take you to the final upload screen, where you can name the file the select Save.
2. Cut the design(s) in your choice of permanent adhesive vinyl with the Vinyl Setting on your Cricut. The SVG Files are sized so that they will automatically cut to the size you see in the photos, but if you want to change the size to whatever you like. :)
3. Once the designs are cut, weed away the extra vinyl and cut a piece of transfer tape to 2" x 5". Cut away any excess backing from the vinyl design and smooth transfer tape over the design, aligning it to along the first letter of the designs with the bottom lines of the tape aligning to the text as shown below. Make sure to align it such that 1” of the transfer tape is to the left of the first letter to use in placing it properly on the glasses later.
4. After smoothing the transfer tape of the designs with the smoother tool, remove the transfer tape from the backing, lifting the design with the transfer tape.
5. Using the transfer tape as a spacer, smooth the design onto the flutes, aligning the short side of the transfer tape along the top edge of the glasses. I adhered mine as shown below. with the tape parallel to the top of the glass just under the rim.
6. Once the transfer tape is aligned along the top, smooth it onto the glass from top to bottom. I smoothed mine by tracing the letters from top to bottom until the entire design was smoothed onto the flute,as shown below.
7. Once the design has been smoothed and all air bubbles are removed, remove the transfer tape to leave the design on the flute. Repeat with the groom flute in the same manner. Using the transfer tape similarly to above you can make the groom flute lettering the same height so your flutes will be a beautiful and matching set! :)
