In order to use Cricut vinyl on any Christmas ornaments, I use vinyl ease transfer tape. Because I find it works best for me. While using it, you have to burn it really well using a Cricut scraper and then peel off the packing. Thus, it will leave the vinyl on the transfer tape. Before you apply to your ornament, you should clip the transfer tap only from all directions using your scissors. Make sure you do not cut the vinyl. Finally, place it on your bauble.
Acrylic is stronger, more durable, and weather resistant. Due to these features, it is widely used for various purposes, including ornaments. Follow the steps below to make acrylic ornaments.
