Weed the excess vinyl away and then use transfer tape to move the designs to the ornament. Press firmly or swipe over the transfer tape with a scraper to make sure the vinyl adheres to the ornament. Pull the transfer tape away.

After the vinyl adheres to the ornament, add the decorative ribbon to the ornament.

What is the Difference between a Cricut and A Silhouette?

When it comes to cutting machines, there are two brands that stand out above the rest: Cricut and Silhouette. Both brands offer a wide range of products that can help you with everything from simple projects to complex designs. So, what is the difference between Cricut and Silhouette?

Cricut machines are designed for use with a wide range of materials, including paper, vinyl, fabric, and even wood. They feature a built-in blade that automatically adjusts to the thickness of the material being cut. Cricut machines also come with a wide range of design software, making it easy to create custom designs.

Silhouette machines, on the other hand, are primarily designed for cutting paper and vinyl. They feature a small cutting area and require the use of a cutting mat. However, Silhouette machines come with their own design software, which includes a library of ready-to-use designs. In addition, Silhouette machines can be connected to a computer so you can use third-party design software.
