Personalized Fance Floral Tote - Craft Cutter Tips
First of all, I didn't waste an entire tote bag with a "Your Name" sample. I actually used craft vinyl to put the design on the bad temporarily. That way I can still remove the vinyl and have a tote bag to decorate with heat transfer vinyl.
First, find a background design you like. I used "floral lace" by Jamie Koay, design #17681. Since I intended to sell totes made with this design I purchased the commercial rights.
Second, use the straight knife function in the designer studio edition to cut your design into two pieces. Make sure you use the "Treat unfilled shapes as: solid" function.
Third, pick your favorite font and insert a name!
Fourth, size your design to fit your tote bag and remember to mirror image it before cutting in heat transfer vinyl.
Lastly, apply your design to your bag and enjoy a beautiful creation! (I use a heat press for professional results.)
