Metallic Vinyl Holiday Decor

It’s Laura here, from KOLA Designs, with another project using one of my favorite Brookie Craft materials – metallic vinyl!! I love the look of “subway art” and wanted to do some Christmas decorations using some great artwork from the Word Collage Cricut cartridge.  These two designs both cut so well using the metallic vinyl (the settings I used on the Cricut were speed: 5, pressure: 3, blade depth: 4, but keep in mind each machine is a little different, and everyone develops their own preferences when it comes to cutting vinyl)  🙂


My plaques were cut out of scrap wood at about 10″ x 12″ and then spray painted.  Once they were dry, I used Brookie Craft’s transfer tape to lift my design from the vinyl backing and right onto the plaque.  The more detail you have in your design, the slower you’ll wanted to go when removing your transfer tape, just to be sure those little letters and details are sticking to your project and not the transfer tape.  Burnishing the entire area very well helps, but you’ll always want to keep an eye out for stow-a-ways on the transfer tape! 😉


Hope you’ve found some inspiration for your own holiday decorations or gifts!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Would love it if you’d follow my own blog at Kola Designs.
