Vinyl Cutter - 4th Grade

We learned each step in the process of transferring an image from the vinyl roll to a surface we want to decorate. This is done using transfer paper. We call it a "half as sticky sticker". Try saying that quickly five time in a row. We use the less sticky surface to pull up the cut vinyl off the roll backing and move it to another surface. The vinyl is twice as sticky so it stays on the new surface while we can peel off the less sticky transfer paper. 

It did not take long for students to realize that they could print the same pattern in more than one color and align the patters to form multi-color designs. It will be interesting to see what happens when they find out we now have a tee-shirt press on campus. Happy Halloween!
