How to apply vinyl on a glass candle holder (Butterfly design)

You will need:

  • ScanNcut CM900
  • Adhesive back vinyl sheet - black or a colour of your choice
  • Transfer sheet
  • Glass candle tumbler/holder
  • ScanNcut file - 000276. Butterfly and Flower Initial Board

Time to Make: 1 Hour

Skill Level: Beginners

Arrange the butterflies so that they are slightly overlapping and then weld them together. Size the welded design to fit on your glass candle tumbler.
  2. Cut out your butterfly design from the adhesive back vinyl sheet.
  3. Hello stained glass window card When your design is cut it is time to weed your design. Weeding is the process of removing the vinyl that is not part of the design.
  4. Hello stained glass window card Hello stained glass window card You only need to use a piece of transfer sheet that will fit your design. You can cut a piece down to size and save the rest for other projects.

    Position your cut design on your transfer sheet, smooth it down on top of the design.

    You can now peel the transfer sheet up, bringing the cut design with it and off of the backing sheet. Your design has now moved to the transfer sheet.
