January is gone, and those New Year’s resolutions may be getting harder to keep! Make this Rock This Goal Mirror Inspiration to remind you of your 2018 goals.

Have you ever used Cricut window cling? It is not a material that I use often, but, when I do, I wonder why I do not use it all the time. My mom used to let us put holiday window cling shapes and characters on the windows at home when we were kids, and using window cling always brings back memories. When my boys were smaller and learning shapes, I made simple window cling shapes for them. They placed them on every window downstairs until they were completely worn.
Cricut window cling can be used for more than home windows. I’ve heard of crafters placing it on the interior window of their vehicle, and today I’m using it for a mirror.
If you make New Year’s resolutions, you may find that they are becoming somewhat lackluster as compared to how you felt about them in January. Any time I am reaching for a goal, I find it helpful to have constant reminders and notes of encouragement surrounding me. This is especially true in times of attempting to reach a weight or exercise goal. Window cling worked great to make this mirror inspiration to remind me each morning that I am working towards a change!
- Cricut machine (I’m using the Cricut Explore Air 2)
- Cricut StandardGrip cutting mat
- Cricut Window Cling (I’m using white)
- Cricut Tools Basic Set (I’m using the tweezers to place the small pieces inside the letter on the mirror.)
Open up Cricut Design Space. If you like the design that I have created, click HERE to access my project file in Design Space. If not, create your own inspirational saying. Keep in mind that the window cling packaging warns to not make designs that are too intricate. Also, remember that any non-connected small pieces inside the letters will have to be placed on the mirror separately.
Place the window cling on the cutting mat, shiny window cling side up. Cut with the Cricut machine.
Use scissors and cut around the entire piece (both lining and window cling). You can save the lining to place the window cling image on to save for later or for storing.
Clean the mirror thoroughly. Let it dry completely.
Place the image on the mirror, adding any small pieces that go inside the letters.
The window cling works well on interior windows and glass frames. This would also be a neat idea if you have a decorative window within your home (for instance, on a mantel or a buffet) that you like to interchange for different holidays.
