When I received a roll of Angel Direct Products vinyl, it looked pretty ordinary, however when I started using it, I had an “AHA! Moment”.
Normally, when you receive vinyl, it is rolled tightly into a small roll, but the Angel Direct Products vinyl was on a 2 1/2″ cardboard core. Honestly, I didn’t think that it would make much difference, but YES IT DOES!
Fighting with a 12×12 piece of adhesive vinyl is sort of like trying to stuff 5 frisky cats into a cardboard box. You need lots of hands and even more patience! Even then, you end up with a few scratches, a torn box, and a mouthful of expletives!
I was sent this product at no charge in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. I would never endorse a product that I found unsatisfactory.
Because Angel Direct Products vinyl is on a larger core, it unrolls easier and doesn’t curl so bad. Ahhhhh! Now there’s music to my ears! Curling vinyl isn’t too bad if you are working on a small project, but when you’re making a large sign, it’s down right aggravating!
How I Decorated this Bucket Using Angel Direct Products Vinyl
During Blitsy’s Black Friday Sleepover Party, the last challenge was to make something gold. I don’t have much gold, and there was a time limit. So, I was a little rushed!
I had this decorative gold bucket that I bought last year. I thought it would look good with some gold glitter trim.
- I used a paint brush to apply a Mod Podge stripe to the bucket. If there hadn’t been a deadline, I would have taped off the stripe with painters tape, so the edges would be even and crisp.
- While the Mod Podge was still wet, I sprinkled it with gold ultra fine glitter.
- I used the Cricut Explore to cut the word “joy” out of craft vinyl from Angel Direct Products.
- Using application tape, I adhered the “joy” to the bucket.
This was a really quick project, but I love how it turned out! I’m trying to find a small white Christmas Cactus to put in it. Watch this video for more crafty information.
As a side note, I LOVE glitter! It’s a good thing too. I was wearing black and had gold glitter all over me. It also made me sneeze and cough, and I had it all over my laptop. I think it was rather festive. Nothing like a little sparkle and shine to kick off the Christmas season!
