What do you have to do?
Step 1: Measure twice, cut once
As the old adage says – measure twice, cut once… The same rule applies when you make a vinyl car decal with the Cricut Maker. Once your design is ready to go, it’s time to prep your materials for cutting. You have a few different options when it comes to cutting your project. You can either attach the entire sheet of vinyl to the mat, or you can cut the vinyl to size.
( WARNING: if you decide to cut your vinyl to size before attaching to the mat, make darn sure that you’ve measured correctly so you don’t come up short. I speak from experience on this one! )
Step 2: Get to work
Putting the machine to work is really the simple part. Whether you’re using Design Space on your phone or on your computer, once you select make it, the program will walk you through the process step-by-step. Feed your prepared mat into the machine, press the blinking button and watch the magic happen!
Once you’ve weeded your design, apply transfer tape to the top of your vinyl car decal and use the scraper to make sure everything is sticking in place as it should be.
Now it’s time to apply your vinyl car decal to your vehicle! Make sure that you have a clean and dry surface. Use glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol to ensure the surface you’re applying your vinyl car decal to is clean and dry.
With these easy-to-follow steps, you can now confidently create your very own vinyl car decal using the Cricut Maker! So why not give it a try? You can personalize your car with any design you desire. Thank you for your support, and happy crafting!
