Detroit Red Wings Cutting Board

Machine Used: Boss Kut Gazelle
Software: Funtime Scrapbooking III
Files Used: Detroit Red Wings
Materials: Oracal 651 vinyl (red, white, and black), Printable vinyl, Ink jet printable magnet sheets, Glass cutting board

Despite the Wings lost last night that ended their home winning streak, I felt the need to celebrate them!  I think that 23 home wins in a row is definitely worth celebrating!!

The idea to add vinyl to a glass cutting board was inspired through another member at the Boss Kut Gazelle owner's forum.

I took the Detroit Red Wing wheel and converted it to a cutable image.  I then mirrored the image because I placed the design on the back of the cutting board for obvious reason.  I cut the red vinyl first (and I've just noticed that I apparently missed a few pieces when I weeded the image. <sigh>  Well, it's mine but I would definitely fix that if I was making it for someone else.) and then applied it to the cutting board.  Then I cut the white vinyl and applied it.

Using the font Helvetica Medium available in the Funtime software, I cut out "Hockeytown North."  Again I mirrored the image and then applied it to the back of the cutting board.  ** For those who don't know, Traverse City is considered Hockeytown North because this is where the Wings have their spring training.**

Now my once boring glass cutting board doesn't have to hide.  I can proudly display it on the counter!!  :o)

Due to the fact that when I first went to cut the Detroit Red Wing wheel I didn't mirror the image, I was left with the wheel already cut out in red vinyl.  WELL, I can't waste it!!  ;o)  Knowing that I had a printable magnet sheet available I decided to make a refridgerator magnet.  I cut the shape of the wheel out from the magent and then applied the red vinyl to it.

Unfortunately the size of the magnet sheet was a little too small for the wheel I cut out but not too bad.

Below is something I did awhile ago but thought that it definitely related to this post.  Using printable vinyl I printed the Detroit Lion mascot and the Detroit Red Wing wheel from the Funtime software.  Then using the print and cut feature, I cut out along the edges of each and then attached them to an extra magnet sheet I have for the time being.  It's nothing permanent and I could easily remove them to put them else where if I find a good place for them.

Thanks for looking!!

  1. OKAY please help me... i am trying to do a snoopy on the back of a glass cutting board... i mirrored the image, but how to you layer it. You put your one color but how to you line it up on the board to layer the next???? i

    1. Hello mommylala, sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. It was really difficult to line the colors up after you've put one down but they do make clear transfer tape. That will allow you to see a little better as you line up the colors.
      It does take some time and patience. It's been awhile since I did this so I don't remember exactly how I managed it.
