Jewelry Dish
First Cut

Jewelry Dish

I absolutely love making simple vinyl projects like this jewelry dish. The CAMEO cuts through vinyl beautifully, leaving me with vinyl designs I can place anywhere. If you haven’t used adhesive vinyl yet, this is the perfect place to start!

 

What you’ll need:

  • Small dish
  • Vinyl
  • Transfer paper
  • Hook
  • Scraper

 

Step One: Preparing the Design

To get a better idea of how large to resize the designs, I created a rectangle the same size as my jewelry dish. Then I resized and rearranged the designs until I was pleased with how it looked. Just remember to delete the rectangle before you cut.

Step Two: Cutting Vinyl

When you’re cutting from a roll of adhesive vinyl, you don’t need to use a cutting mat. Just load the vinyl into your machine while pressing the “Load Media” button. This is the second button from the top on the Portrait and the middle button on the CAMEO’s touchscreen menu. To cut the design, go to “Cut Settings” and select “Vinyl” as the “Material Type.”

Step Three: Weed the Vinyl

Use scissors to cut the design away from the roll of vinyl. Grab the hook and use it to remove the excess vinyl. I like to use a couple pieces of washi tape to keep it flat while I’m weeding the vinyl.

Step Four: Transfer the Vinyl

Cut a piece of transfer paper that is slightly larger than your design. Remove the side of the transfer paper that is not sticky. Place the sticky side of the transfer paper over your vinyl design. Use the scraper to smooth it out. Pull the transfer paper up. The vinyl should release from its backing while staying on the piece of transfer paper.

Place this piece where you want it on the jewelry dish. Go over it with the scraper tool to make sure the vinyl is stuck to the dish. Pull the transfer paper up. The vinyl should stay on the dish.

Isn’t adhesive vinyl so fun and easy to work with? It’s hard not to go crazy and put it on everything!

  1. I did something like this for Christmas! I’d been browsing through Typo and saw their trinket dishes – gorgeous, but a bit pricey. So I looked around for my own ceramic dishes to which I could add vinyl. I found a brilliant hexagon shaped soap dish (no hole) and added a quote to it with vinyl. Personalised Christmas gifts for the win!
