Personalizing with My Craft Spot Small Alphabet Dies

Today I am showcasing an incredibly easy project over at My Craft Spot and am sharing it here on my blog as well.  Using the new Small Alphabet metal dies, I ran the letters of my name and the small and large butterflies through my Cuttlebug with Cricut vinyl.  I then adhered the vinyl to my iPad mini and voil√†, it was personalized!


Here's a close-up of the vinyl as well as the Small Alphabet metal dies that I used for this project.  (They are upside down/backwards to show you the cutting edges.  My Craft Spot dies cut with a clean, smooth edge every time.)  It took only minutes to complete my project - and now I've got a personalized iPad with a bit of a feminine flair to it.


For those of you with young children, the Small Alphabet metal dies are a must for labelling.  Instead of buying stickers, you can use the dies to create as many labels as you like - and never run out of a particular letter (or be left with letters you do not need).  I have also labelled a number of my youngest son's items, including his electronic gadgets.  So far, the Cricut vinyl I have used has stood the test and stays put!


Check out the My Craft Spot Gallery for more ideas using the Small Alphabet metal dies.  Have a wonderful day!

Kate this looks fabulous! I really must try this. I have a draw full of vinyl but have not had the confidence to try. I must make the time...I want to personalize my ipad now. Have a great weekend

Kate, this is a brilliant idea! Not only genius, but also beautifully executed. :o) I've been wanting to play with vinyl and this project just amped up that desire. I love that you included butterflies with your name... because your love flutters into our lives every single day. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
