Every year since my daughter has attended her school, the school has held some type of spring fundraiser. It has been a different event each year, but it is always an enjoyable time that raises needed funds for the school. One of our favorite consistent parts of the fundraisers has always been the silent auction or raffle. Each class chips in money or items to create a fun, themed gift basket that is either included in a silent auction or a raffle. From gift-wrapping raffle baskets to family movie night baskets, each one is unique.
This year, my daughter’s class is doing a Baker’s Gift Basket. The basket is full of items that any baking lover would enjoy receiving. Since my daughter is currently quite enthusiastic about baking, she was excited to pick out items to donate towards the basket. She also has her fingers crossed on winning the basket! Haha! We purchased items needed to make cake pops. I also made a reversible DIY Kitchen Measurement Sign with my handy-dandy Cricut machine and permanent vinyl.
Supplies to make the DIY Kitchen Measurement Sign:
- Cricut machine – I’m using the Cricut Maker, but the Cricut Explore Air 2 would also work for this project.
- Cricut StandardGrip Cutting Mat
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Cricut Fine Point Blade
- Cricut Permanent Premium Vinyl- White
- Cricut Weeding Tool and Cricut Scraper
- 8.5″ by 10.5″ sign like this one– The sign may have a chalkboard background, a white board background, or any plastic-type background. I’m using a chalkboard background sign with a wooden frame. I thought that the chalkboard background would be good for any one who would like to jot additional measurements or tips on the board. I left the frame the plain wood color so that the recipient of the basket could paint it or leave it plain as desired.
Upload the SVG image to Cricut Design Space. If you are new to uploading project SVG files, click over and read How to Upload SVG Files or Images in Cricut Design Space before continuing.
Insert the SVG image into a new project page. At this point, decide which parts of the image file that you want to keep in the project. You’ll notice that I did not keep all of them. Ungroup the images and delete any that you do not wish to keep.
Measure the inside of the sign to determine how much room that you have to place the design.
If the sign will be reversible (some measurements on the front and some on the back), decide which pieces will be on each side. Arrange the images for the front and back as desired, making sure that the designs will fit inside area on the sign.
Send the images to the Cricut machine, cutting the vinyl on the StandardGrip Cutting Mat. The vinyl should be placed on the mat with the colored portion side up.
Once the design has been cut, weed the image with the Cricut weeding tool.
Place a piece of transfer tape on the weeded image and use it to transfer the design to the sign. Utilize the Cricut Scraper the press and adhere the vinyl to the sign to make sure it sticks well. Peel off the transfer tape.
Repeat with the other side.
