When you have a Silhouette, you are always looking for things that can be vinyled. There are so many plain items at places like Target, Amazon, or other stores just waiting for some decoration.
Today’s post uses a plain glass cutting board and turns it into a personalized gift. The cutting boards that I’m using are 7.75″ (square and round) but the idea is the same for all sizes.
Starting in Silhouette Design Studio, create your design. I bought the silverware and name one from the Silhouette store, the others were created by me using a mix of fonts. I tried to think of some funny sayings to put on these cutting boards and decided with “Life is short, eat Dessert first” and “Many have eaten here, Few have died”. I thought that they were fitting for the kitchen.
The key to these personalized cutting boards is that the adhesive vinyl is solid colored so what is really being seen is the bottom side. Since the vinyl is going on the bottom. It is very important that the design is MIRRORED before you cut.
Once the vinyl has been cut and weeded, use transfer paper to apply the decal onto the underside of the cutting board. Use nice, firm, pressure to make sure there are no bubbles remaining.
I love how these turned out. The “Life is short, Eat Dessert First” and “Many have eaten here, few have died” would be fun hostess or housewarming gifts. I could see these becoming staples of wedding and bridal shower gifts with her new last name.
What sort of sayings would you put on a cutting board?
