I am a little obsessed with my Die Cutting machine at the moment. So when I saw these boots on sale, I knew my sister needed them to wear as she cleared out the woods behind her house.
Here’s how I made them:
- Lay a 12×12 sheet of Waterproof adhesive vinyl on my cutting mat.
- Designed initials using “Boys R Crazy” font. Increased the size of the center initial
- After it was cut, I picked the background vinyl
- Stick transfer tape on to of name, rubbed it for 10 seconds and then remove backing to vinyl
- Position transfer tape on boots and stick. Rub vigorously for 30 seconds and then peel
Where did you get your boots?? Is there a brand name?
I tried this and when walking the monogram bent in areas due to the bending of my rain boots? ? Any tips?
You can seal it with mod podge or a spray sealer to keep it from pealing off in increment weather. Our boots are pretty stiff so we haven’t had bending issues. Possibly a thicker vinyl. Are you using outdoor vinyl?
I’ve also had the problem with when my girls are walking in there raibboots the vinyl “scrunches” and starts to feel off, I thought at first it was BC I had plain cricut vinyl so I then bought outdoor vinyl (oracal 651) and it is still doing it, I live the look of vinyl on boots but not having luck with the vinyl staying on, any solutions, You can provide?
You could treat the boot first with a medium like mod podge (you’ll need to use a compatible finish) before applying the vinyl to make it a more stickable surface. I have also heard a sealer or additional layer of mod podge has worked. Let me know.
Can i buy all materials at hobby lobby?
Yes, except the boots.
what vinyl did you use??
outdoor permanent vinyl Oracel 651
Where did you purchase the boots? I’ve been looking everywhere for a wholesale supplier for them and have found nothing.
I have seen them in department stores and even Walmart, but the easist is to go to Amazon here. http://amzn.to/1Qd7pWo
