Lets get started on making this Bucket Lantern for your camping trip!

< InstructionsDownload your cut file and upload it to Cricut Design Space. Resize the design to fit the front of the bucket (I determined my container front location to be about 9-inches large). When you have the vinyl design in location where you d like, push the cling cover down equally, using the spatula tool to work out any little bubbles and smooth the design around the curve of the bucket.Peel away the transfer paper and dispose of. Your pail is now ready for use.When its dark outside, position a flashlight inside the container while on, then change the lid. The pail will produce a nice glow. For ease, connect all of the style components by highlighting all of them in the ideal tool bar and selecting the "connect" button in the lower. Utilizing the outer corners of the transfer paper to control the design, position the style onto the side of the bucket where you desire it, taking care not to let the vinyl touch the bucket or it will affix completely. Place the bucket on its side in the floor in between your feet if you discover it difficult to keep the container stable. You can hold the bucket stable with your feet, freeing your hands to place the design. Load the mat into the maker and inform Cricut Design Space to proceed with the cut. . Select the "make" button in the upper right corner and link your computer system to your cutting machine.Select the material you are cutting (vinyl) and make certain you have the correct blade in the maker. Place the vinyl on your light grip mat and ensure it is face-up, smoothing it down so that portions of the vinyl backing sheet reaches the mat so that it will not raise up and ruin the cut. Carefully and thoroughly peel the transfer paper away from the vinyl backing sheet, pulling the vinyl away from the support sheet with the transfer paper. If you have difficulty transferring a piece of the design, just work gradually and return over it with the spatula tool. Weed the unnecessary vinyl from the design and dispose of. Get rid of the design (still connected to the backing sheet) from the mat and place vinyl-side-up on a difficult surface area like a wood table. As soon as the cut has actually been made, get rid of the mat from the cutting device. Cover the style with a sheet of transfer paper with the "sticky side" down. Rub intensely over the style with a spatula tool or your fingernail to attach the transfer paper to the vinyl design.
