Spices and Herbs Subway Art


It all started with this piece of wood I got from Home Depot for $5.41

And unfortunately that's where the tutorial ended
because the $&@# batteries in my camera died and
it was after bedtime so I couldn't run to the store.

However it was super easy, I just whipped out the Cricut and the Don Juan cartridge. . . side note: if its not obvious by now this is my absolute favorite cartridge, Love it ! . .and I went to this website to gather up all the spice and herb names I wanted to use. Than I proceeded to punch the names into the Cricut and cut them out, varying them in size as I went along.
The smallest I went was 1.5" and the biggest I had was 3"
I highly underestimated two things when it came to this project.
  1. How much vinyl I actually needed to complete this .
  2. How much time it would take to complete. . . Peeling the back off all those letters took f.o.r.e.v.e.r !
But in the end I loved it and thats
all the counts in Craft Land :)
Happy Crafting !
