I love experimenting with canvas. This home decor piece is one of my favorites. It was really easy to make. Today I am sharing this project not only with my readers but the readers at She's A Sassy Lady. The entire project was made with the Cricut cartridge Robot Party.
This project was made for a manufacturer. As a result I did not do a full photo tutorial. But I do have a complete list of instructions to duplicate this project.
<NameTgLyr> 3.0 inches (real size on)
<Card1Lyr> 4.0 inches (real size on)
<Card1Lyr> 4.0 inches (real size on) FLIP
<RoboPrty> 5.0 inches (real size off)
<CpckWpLr> 3 inches (real size on)
Silver Contact Paper
Metal Embellishments- nuts, caps, washers
Modge Podge Matte
Robot Patterned Fabric
Robot Party Cartridge
- Using an inexpensive canvas, paint a thin layer of blue acrylic paint along sides and across the front.
- Once dried, measure and cut a piece of fabric to cover canvas and sides.
- Smear a thin layer of Modge Podge Matte on canvas.
- Lay down fabric
- Smear another coat of Modge Podge Matte on top of the fabric.
- Repeat Layering the Modge Podge twice, drying in between coats.
- Cut <NameTgLyr> <CpckWpLr> <Card1Lyr> <CardLyr> Flip and <RoboPrty> from Silver Contact Paper, using settings: 3Depth, 3 Pressure, 3 Speed.
- Weed out the vinyl and using transfer tape, lift the contact paper form backing and place onto the dried canvas.
- Smooth the cuts down firmly
- Using E6000, adhere several small metal embellishments, including, nuts, bolts, washers
- Once the metal has dried, run a 1 inch wide strip of Terrifically Tacky Tape to the sides of the canvas. Removing the liner on one side at a time, begin to pleat the ribbon up about an inch and then down an inch. Continue this all the way around the canvas.
I did not make the pleating “perfect” since the theme is a bit quirky, playful and fun
I hope you enjoyed my project! As always I appreciate the time you take to leave me a comment.
