I wanted to find a Pinterest idea that I could whip up for her for her special day! I wanted to monogram something for them with their last name on it to give it a little kick! I ended up finding te perfect glass baking dish with a lid at Walmart. The lid had a perfect canvas for a Monogram on it! I played around in Cricut Craft Room trying to find the best way to do the layout. I found some tutorials on YouTube that showed how to do a “split” letter but Cricut Craft Room has changed since the last update so I decided to do it my way! Instead of doing a split monogram, I did a giant M and put lines at the bottom with their last name in between. I was happy with the end result but that vinyl can be tricky when you have intricate cuts. I used Glad Press & Seal instead of transfer paper. I would like to get some transfer paper to see the difference but the Press & Seal worked ok. The biggest thing to remember while using vinyl is to make sure to carefully lay down the vinyl while making sure not to have bubbles in it. Originally, I planned on trying glass etch to put their last name into the glass pan, but since I am just starting to play with vinyl on my Cricut, I wanted to wait until I am more comfortable using it. I will have to try that on one of my glass dishes this summer to see how it turns out!
