It is baseball season so I did this Knock out vinyl project for my favorite team Cleaveland Indians. Go Tribe!
This is a fun knock out project that I will post a tutorial on how do do your own team in the Design Space -There is nothing to be Scared of video section soon, but I thought I’d just put the project here so I could tell you how to finish it.
I used an oven cover plate of plain white. You can buy them at the dollar store or at Walmart fairly cheaply. Whether you use it as a wall hanging or oven cover is up to you. I used removable vinyl but you can use permanent too.
What you need:
- oven cover
- blue, red and white vinyl
- transfer paper
- scraper or squeegee
- a pick to weed with
- download file
Preparing The Design
I used the Indians logo colors of vinyl to cut this. If you are doing a different team, use their colors. I will post the video later today on how to make your own cut file.
Cut each color separately. Then weed each color.
The first thing to do is place the blue oval on the oven cover. Using your transfer tape, place it over the oval and squeegee it down. Next pull up the blue oval onto the tape. I’ve found it works best if the transfer tape is on the bottom and you peel the vinyl carrier away parallel to the transfer paper. Place the oval in the middle of the oven cover. Squeegee it well and make sure there are no air bubbles. Peel the transfer paper away parallel to the oven cover leaving the oval behind.
Place the same piece of transfer paper (now empty) over the red player first and move it to the transfer paper. Then line up the transfer paper over the white logo making sure to get the pieces lined up properly. Transfer the design to the oven cover centering the player and logo in the center of the oval. Squeegee it down so there are no air bubbles. Finally remove the transfer paper.
Your Knock out vinyl project is done!
