I recently went from a bunch of smaller containers to one large crafty tote on my “messy desk” aka mixed media station. Inside I store everything from my heat tool to paper towels, water brushes to watercolor pens! It really has come in handy… but it is awfully boring!
This is where we cue some craft vinyl + the ScanNCut! (usual disclaimer – I am a paid consultant for Brother. All ideas & opinions are my own)
I decided to work with the text converter tool, a free tool that lets you make ScanNCut files out of any font! Super quick and easy to do and I thought it would be fun to use a font similar to the one I use on my website/logo! I also decided to stick with shades of purple because that is always a blast for me and favorite, and really just use up some vinyl.
Here is a link to my YouTube video tutorial showing the process of decorating this metal tote.
It really is this simple:
- Pick a pattern
- Cut out the vinyl
- Weed vinyl/move to transfer sheet. OR Directly transfer depending on design and complexity
- Repeat steps 1-3
- ENJOY your creation!
I have been utilizing vinyl in many ways and I’m excited to get it used in my studio as well! I have so many ideas for customizing more in here and really making the space 100% my own. One thing I love is that it doesn’t take a ton of time, and it doesn’t have to be expensive or anything either. In fact, you can customize your own anything from file folders to storage bins – for your office, craft supplies, or even in the kitchen!
While I am off to contemplate all the things I might vinyl next (ha!) I wish you all the best for a happy + crafty weekend!
