Quick Tip Tuesday

Welcome fellow Cricuteers!

It is time for another quick tip.This time one for iron on vinyl: When you position your vinyl on the mat and it looks like it might not stick well enough, you can use low tack painters tape to hold the edges in place. I regularly place my materials at 1/4" from the side and the top ( on both: the virtual  and the real mat) and use the tape on this area to reduce material waste.

As always thanks for stopping by!
Have a very crafty day!
