- Make sure to download the fonts from Makers Gonna Learn. Then unzip the files and install them on your computer.
- In Design Space, open a text box and search for the Hibiscus font. Then, type in the text you want. You can decrease the space between the letters by using the down-arrow in Letter Spacing or you can use Ungroup and manually adjust the letter spacing. Be sure to Group again when finished.
- Open another text box and search for the font Hibiscus Swoosh. Type in the letter you want with the swoosh. (NOTE: If you want to swoosh to the left, use the upper case and if you want it to the right, use the lower case. You can have the swoosh on the first letter or the last letter of the word or both). Once you are satisfied with how the text looks, select all of your text and press Weld.
- Grab a square and size it the same size of the wood you are using for the project for visualization. You may also change the color if you want. Then move the text over to the square and size it accordingly. Once you are happy with the size of your text, delete the square.
- Click Make It. We are using HTV so be sure to mirror your design.Pres Continue to connect to your machine and set the material to everyday iron-on. We are adding more pressure because our blade is a bit older.
- Place the heat transfer vinyl shiny side down on the mat and load it into the machine to cut. Once done cutting, you can weed it.
- Now you need to stain your wood. We’re using a rag we cut from an old t-shirt for this. You can stain both sides if you want or only the side where you will place the vinyl. Be sure to let this dry well before applying your vinyl.
- Place the vinyl where you want it. Lay your tools out on the wood so you can plan out where to place the hooks. Using a Sharpie, mark where each of the hooks will go.
- Use something sharp to start the holes for the hooks. Screw in the C hooks.
- Place the Teflon sheet over your HTV. Heat with your EasyPress Mini. Remove the Teflon sheet. Peel off the transfer tape.
- Hang the weeding tools on the hooks and you’re done.
