Thursday Tutorial--Using Vinyl With Your Cricut

Hi, everyone, and thanks for joining us here at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog for another Thursday Tutorial!
Today's tutorial is all about how to work with vinyl.  As a papercrafter, I was afraid to try my hand at vinyl at first.  But I saw so many cute projects that people had made using their Cricuts, I just had to give it a try.
The interesting thing is that Cricuts were originally modeled after vinyl sign making machines.  So the reality is that cutting vinyl with your Cricut is even easier than cutting paper--great news, huh?

This is a video I made before Thanksgiving showing how to cut, weed, and apply vinyl to wood.  I'm sorry it's a little out of season, but I think it shows you how easy and fun vinyl really is to work with.

Thanks for dropping by today--please join us next week for another Thursday tutorial!
