Mixing Up Some Mixer Art

1 Jan

I’ve been dying for more chances to use my Silhouette but we’ve unfortunately been out of town quite a bit with the holidays.  We went to my parents house this weekend to celebrate Christmas and I decided to bring to my new toy with me.  As we were browsing Pinterest, we stumbled on some vinyl mixer art.  This got the wheels turning and we headed to HobLob to pick up some white vinyl.  I download the Cooking Utensils shape for my Silhouette as well as the Spatula shape.  Some copying and pasting and I was in business!

I measured the mixer and used about 7.5″ tall and 8″ long, so using the grid in the Silhouette Studio, I made it exactly these dimensions.  Once I had the design done, I didn’t a quick test cut with cardstock and then loaded up the white vinyl.

This is the negative space once I pulled it off my template.

After I had my utensils cut out, I used transfer paper to pull them off the vinyl and make the adhering on the mixer a piece of cake.

I know there are lots of fancy tools for this, but I used the Pampered Chef scraper to transfer from the transfer paper to the mixer.

After you have made sure your vinyl is adhered, it’s time to peel it back and see the big reveal.

TaDa!  It was super easy and turned out SO cute.  My momma’s mixer has never looked better.

Did you do any crafting for the New Year??  Who else is lovin’ the vinyl on appliances trend?!?!

    I LOVE it!! I just got a new red KitchenAid for Christmas. I want to dress it up, but I think I need to let it soak in my head that I actually got my mixer for Christmas first, lol!
