Lego Rock Band Projects

I am part of the blog hop "A New Season A New Skill"  which starts over at craftingmisfit.  The challenge for us was to try a new skill or something we had never done before.  This is what I did -

Vinyl
 I have done a little bit of work with vinyl on the magnetic/dry erase boards I have been making but not much more than that.  Sunday was my youngest daughter's birthday party and I used vinyl to decorate some plastic water bottles I bought from Wal-Mart.   I made one of the little girl's especially happy because she has an unusual name and has never been able to buy a product with her name on it before:-)



Added the musical notes to fit the theme of the party!


Banner
I also decided to make a banner for my daughter's birthday party.  She had a "Lego Rock Band" party and this is the first time I had ever made a banner.  I used Twinkle Toes for the base of the banner and Mickey Font for the letters as well as Smiley Cards for the guitars.
 


Notice the googley (is that a word?) eyes!!

Shrinky Dinks
I also cut out shrinky dink material using my cricut.  I cut out the guitar from Smiley Cards but only used the shadow feature.  I found that setting my regular blade at 6 my pressure at high and multicut 2x worked great.
The kids colored them in with colored pencils.  

This shows how I laid the cuts out on the mat.


Baking in the oven.

The final product!!
Thanks for taking the time to look at my projects and have a wonderful week!!  You should now hop on over to Melissa.

  16. This is a wonderful project! I love what you did with the vinyl! Such a creative idea! My daughter's name is not spelled as it is in English, so she has the problem that there is never anything for her in the personalized dept. I make so many things with vinyl so she doesn't feel left out! I am going to be picking some of these bottles up at Walmart now! Thanks!
