Crafting Process: Bringing Your Vision to Life

Once your design is ready, it's time to let the Cricut machine work its magic. Load your chosen vinyl onto the cutting mat, ensuring a smooth and secure placement. Then, watch as the machine precisely cuts out your design with impressive accuracy. After cutting, use the weeding tool to remove any excess vinyl, leaving only your desired design intact on the backing sheet.

Before applying the sticker decal, clean the cell phone case surface with a mild soap and water solution. Make sure to dry it thoroughly to prevent any moisture from getting trapped under the sticker.

Assembling Your Cell Phone Cover

Now comes the exciting part—applying your design to the cell phone cover! Cut a piece of transfer tape slightly larger than your design and carefully apply it over the vinyl. Use a scraper tool to ensure firm adhesion, then gently peel away the backing sheet, leaving the design on the transfer tape.

Position the design onto your cell phone cover, smoothing out any air bubbles or wrinkles. Once satisfied with the placement, firmly press down on the design, then slowly peel away the transfer tape, revealing your masterpiece.
