How to make

You will also need: 

* Cricut Design Space app installed on a laptop, PC, Tablet, or mobile device

Step 1

Paint the coffin blank black with acrylic paint and leave to dry.

Top Tip - more than one coat of black paint may be needed to acheive an even coverage. Leave the first coat to dry before applying a second.

Step 2

Open up the project in Cricut Design Space by clicking on the link in the description, or alternatively, use the link below – https://design.cricut.com/landing/project-detail/60e5d3e385f73208e032796a

Once the project has loaded, select 'Customise', then edit the text for your chosen cocktails.

Step 3

Next, load your choice of Smart Vinyl face-up into the Cricut Joy.

Select the Smart Vinyl cut setting and then begin the cut.

Step 4

Once the machine has finished cutting, remove the vinyl. Carefully cut around each section of your design so that you can use the remaining vinyl for another project.

Take your weeding tool and carefully remove all of the excess vinyl leaving only the images on the backing sheet.

Step 5

Next, take a piece of Transfer Tape and removing the white backing sheet, lay it onto one of the pieces of your design, then scrape both sides of the vinyl. 

Carefully peel back the tape, making sure the design is stuck to it as you pull it away from the vinyl carrier sheet.

Stick your design into place on the coffin, then give a really good scrape with the scraper tool to ensure that the design is well stuck down.

Peel the Transfer Tape back on itself, as flat as you can, leaving your design on the painted coffin.

Step 6

Repeat this process until all of the pieces are transferred, and your sign is complete!
