DIY Love Letter with Dollar Tree Cutting Board
I’ve been sharing a few ideas here and there using this cute little Dollar Tree Cutting Board. If you missed them, check out the How to Make A Recipe Keepsake with Sublimation and Dollar Tree and DIY Mini Santa Plate projects. This time we’re changing it up with a fun HTV project that you can create with just your inkjet printer. No special equipment is needed!
What you will need:
- Mini Bamboo Cutting Board from Dollar Tree
- Mini Easy Press or Iron (no steam)
- Inkjet Printer
- Dark Fabric Heat Transfer Paper
- Washi Tape
- Design of your choice (I used one from this bundle and sized it to fit the cutting board)
- Cutting Mat
- Craft Knife
I created a quick video to show you the steps of this easy video…check it out below…
Now let’s walk through the steps together.
Download the image of your choice from the bundle above and size it to fit the cutting board. I like to make it slightly larger so that the whole board is covered. Repeat this process for it to be double-sided. Load the Transfer Paper into your inkjet printer per the manufacturer’s instructions and print. Trim around the design if needed.
Remove the paper backing from the transfer print. Place the vinyl on top of the cutting board, center it and make sure the whole board is covered with the print.
Set the mini press to high. When the press is ready, place a piece of parchment paper included with he paper pack on top of the design and press. Apply even pressure, you don’t have to press for long, just move it over the design in a constant motion and make sure you don’t get any wrinkles. Make sure to get the edges so that it doesn’t peel up.
Once pressed, turn it upside down and trim off the excess with crafting knife on a cutting mat.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the backside.
For a finished look, add washi tape along the edge of the board and you’re done!
Wasn’t that easy and doesn’t it look cute? This decorative piece can be displayed with your Valentine’s Day decor and a coordinating mailbox. It also makes a nice gift. Again, it’s just for decorative use, it can no longer be used as a cutting board.
