Imagine That...Vinyl!!!

Well its official....I LOVE printable vinyl, No surface in my house {or otherwise} will ever be safe again!! My family has long accepted that there WILL be at all times a dusting of glitter somewhere in our home...as we all know glitter migrates and it has a way of getting on everything! Watch out jars of sparkles, you have some serious competition....VINYL!!!!
 So I will not pretend this is hard or earth shattering project, in fact it took longer to photograph than to actually do! Its very straight forward print-cut-peel off backing-apply- done!!!! Hello.....that is why I LOVE it!!! I picked up these metal containers at TJMaxx about a year or so ago for about 1.50 each, they were too perfect for my markers, and prisma pencils.....except they had been printed for use in the kitchen. My solution was to turn them backwards, but the imagine and printable cut able vinyl made them pretty display pieces in no time!

Look at all the detail that prints onto a blank white sheet of printable vinyl! I'm still amazed at the beauty of the artwork Provocraft put onto these cartridges! The imagine more cartridge is seriously gorgeous! I know you will want to take a stroll on over to Cindys blog and check out her amazing tag series using the imagine and the imagine more cartridge, she will show you another way to use this eye candy artwork!

My only advice is to let the ink dry completely and set your blade to 2, I had perfect results my first try. This is one of the easiest, instant gratification projects I have ever done!!!! 
OH yes I'm in LOVE with this stuff!!!.....I'm off to print some more, maybe I will decorate my entire craft room!??
