I LOVE the look of intricately cut paper art work. It amazes me when I think about how much patience such a craft requires. Even some of the silhouettes of heads take some time to accurately cut.
Even though I love the way it looks, I’ll take the easy way out if I can. And I can. :)
I got this really great Asian inspired silhouette as a sample from Vinyl Words. I loved that it was RED… one of my very favorite colors! And while I can’t say that I have a particularly Asian inspired home I DO have an eclectically decorated home.
Anyway, I found an 11×14 inch frame with a wide black edge and I removed the cardboard backing. I cleaned both sides of the glass with glass cleaner and set it aside to dry. In the meantime I started removing the backing from the vinyl according to the package directions.
Once the glass was dry I centered the design on the glass and adhered the sticky paper with the vinyl to the glass. Burnish with your fingers (just be careful of the edges of the glass) making sure to get all of the edges. If you should get a bubble, I hardly ever do with this vinyl, just pop it with a tiny pin and smooth it down.
Doesn’t this look great? I love the way the cutout floats above the paper underneath. It’ll float above the wall where it is hung and look amazing! I’m not sure where I’m going to hang it but I’m crazy about it!
