personalized doggie paw ornament

Make this personalized doggie paw ornament project it is a cute DIY Christmas craft.
Step 1
Step 1 Paint the outside back of your ornament white with Wedding Cake gloss paint. Let dry and add a second coat. Set aside to dry. Step 2 Open Cricut® Design Space™ on your computer. Click on ‘Text’ in the left panel on the canvas screen and type the name of your pet. Find a font you like and adjust the size to fit across your ornament. Step 3 Click ‘Images’ in the left panel and then enter "paw" into the search field in the upper right corner to choose an image. Select the paw and then click ‘Insert Images’ in the lower right corner to bring the design into your canvas. Adjust the size to fit on your ornament. TIP: If you are cutting from two different colors of vinyl, be sure to change the colors on the canvas, so the machine knows to cut the name from black only, and the paw from red vinyl. To do this, click on the circle dot next to the design details in the right panel and change the color. Step 4 When you are happy with your design, click ‘Make It” in the upper right corner and then ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner. Step 5 Place your vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ for the material and cut out your design. Once the machine is done cutting, gently peel vinyl from the mat. And repeat with your second color. Step 6 Cut out each of the images and then use your weeder tool to remove the negative space surrounding and inside the letters/design. Step 7 Lay the pieces together as you would like them to appear on your ornament. You can tape them together if you'd like. Step 8 Cut a piece of transfer tape large enough to fit over both images, and peel off the backer paper. Place the piece, sticky-side down, over the vinyl images and burnish. Gently peel back the transfer tape and the vinyl images should be transferred to the tape. Step 9 Place the transfer tape with the images onto your ornament and burnish. Step 10 Gently peel back the transfer tape, leaving the images on your ornament. Step 11 Cut some ribbon, thread it through the hanger on the ornament and tie a bow.
