Tax (hand doodled) fun with the ScanNCut

So I was avoiding my paperwork and doodling… and before I knew it I had filled an entire page! Then I realized it’d really brighten up a dreary subject: My taxes.  So, doodle in hand I got out my ScanNCut and got to work. Today I’m going to show you the how-to.

usual disclaimer here – I am a paid consultant and work with Brother, however all ideas and opinions are my own. I always want to be 100% clear and upfront! 

One of the “new to me” in 2017 was crafting with vinyl. I don’t know why it took me so long to get on board, but I am glad that I did! While the weeding can be tedious as can the transferring (depending on the specific material/brand)  – it’s worth it! From mirrors to books to now my taxes folder – it can really make something personal and fun.

For this project I used vinyl and a doodle of my own. You’ll need to scan and create a cut file with your drawing, then cut it out with vinyl. Note that you CAN re-size if you want. I knew I wanted full size so off I went! You can watch the full YouTube tutorial here.

End result? Totally in love!

My X turned a bit Y with all the loopiness – but I know what it says and I love having my own signature and brand as well as my doodles all over what is normally the only part of my job I don’t enjoy! Oh that paper work – at least now it’s pretty.

Tomorrow we kick off with National Craft Month and I couldn’t be more excited – I’ve got tons of ideas coming for you and even some give-away fun. So stay tuned!
