Salon Services menu

YAY! I have a lil sumthin' sumthin'
to post about.
Can I get an Amen??

My friend/hair stylist/cousin in law/customer
asked me to create a custom hair menu for
her salon.

It took me a while to get it designed~
had a few technical difficulties.
But is DONE.

Here's what I used:
Black picture frame
Scrapbook Paper
Vinyl lettering

I created an
custom vinyl using the
list she provided.

Using my Silhouette,
 I cut out the design in
black vinyl.

Once it was weeded...I applied application tape.
I placed the glass on my piece of 
scrapbook paper and put them
on a cutting board.
I used a box cutter and cut out around the glass.

I put the glass in the frame and used a dry erase maker
and traced around the frame. This way, you have
a guide for the vinyl placement.

**I wet the glass with Windex and placed the vinyl on it
By wetting the glass it is easier to re-position and
lessens the chance of bubbles under the lettering.**
I let the vinyl sit on the glass for about 20 minutes. This allows the Windex to evaporate.
When ready...use a warm damp cloth and rub over the application tape.

This will help release the application tape.
Once damp...peel away carefully. Make sure your i's are still dotted
and your small punctuation marks are there as well. =)
Once on, wipe off the dry erase marker and clean glass

I placed the glass back in the frame with
the scrapbook paper in the background. Then
I put the frame back together.

Here it is:

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
