Cricut Design Space:

I use Cricut Design Space and the next several steps will be based on that.

If you use Silhouette Studio or a different design software, your steps may be different.

The first thing to do is upload the file into your cutter software.

The design is already sized fit on the Dollar Tree Pizza Pan, but you can cut this design into different sizes to fit any need.

Select "Make It' to send the design to your machine to cut.

Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space so you know what color of vinyl to load for each layer of cut.

Prep the Vinyl Layers:

My favorite weeding tool is the one with the little hook on the end.

Cut a large piece of transfer tape, and apply it to the top of the white layer.

Wet Method to Apply Vinyl:

The wet method is a great way to apply vinyl to get perfect placement before it sticks completely.

In a small bottle add a single drop of dish soap. You really don't need very much at all.

Adding a drop of dish soap to a small spray bottle.

Fill the bottle the rest of the way up with water, screw on the top, and shake to mix.

Remove the backing paper to the white bunny layer, and turn it over so the sticky side is up.

Apply a little bit of the soap/water mixture to the sticky side of the white vinyl and to the pizza pan.

Soapy water sprayed onto the pizza pan and back of the vinyl.

Lay the white piece of vinyl onto the pizza pin and move the vinyl so it lines up with the inner line of the pizza pan.

Applying the vinyl to a pizza pan using the wet method.

Once the vinyl is in place, I want to remove as much of the water as I can so now the piece will stick.

Use a scraper tool and push out the water from behind the vinyl.

Pressing the water out using a scraper tool.

Keep a small hand towel or rag handy to soak up that pushed-out water.

Removing the transfer tape can be a little tricky to get started.

Carefully peel back a small section, and then hold the vinyl in place with the scraper tool.

Peeling back the transfer tape.

Continue to pull the transfer tape straight back until the entire piece of transfer tape has been removed.

Go over the vinyl again with the scraper tool to push out any bubbles or water from behind the vinyl.

Cut a new piece of transfer tape and apply it over the pink piece of vinyl, the ears and the nose.

We are not going to use the wet method to apply this layer.

Align the nose along the bottom center of the white layer and roll the pink layer into place.

Applying the pink layer onto the door hanger.

Again, use the scraper tool to go over the pink layer and secure it in place.

Peel back the transfer tape.

Cut a small square off of the last used piece of transfer tape, and use it to pick up the black eyes and lay them in place.

Using the same larger piece of transfer tape, apply it to the bunny word piece.

Remove the backing paper to the bunny word piece, and center the "bunny" between the two lines of black text.

Centering the bunny-word layer between the two lines of text.

Remove the backing paper, and place the text on the door hanger. To remove the transfer tape, peel it straight back.

Easy Wired Bow:

I love to use wired ribbons to make bows because the wire makes them easy to shape.

The ribbon I am using is a 2-inch wired ribbon.

Make a loop and pinch, making sure to leave a length as a tail.

Making a loop with ribbon.

Make another loop opposite the first, and about the same size. Pinch in the middle.

Adding a second loop to a ribbon bow.

Create another loop on top of the first, just a bit smaller. Pinch to hold the loops.

Adding a third loop to a ribbon bow.

Create a fourth on top of the second, the same size as the last loop. Pinch to hold the loops.

Adding a fourth loop to a ribbon bow.

Cut the second tail so it is about as long as the first.

Cutting off the ribbon.

Wrap a piece of wire around the center, where you were pinching to hold everything together. Trim off the ends of the wire.

Cut a dovetail in the ends of the ribbon by folding a tail ribbon in half and cut down from the center. Repeat on the other tail.

Fluff the bow by reshaping that wire until you have a pretty bow.

Hot Glue:

Add a glob of hot glue at the top of the door hanger to adhere the bow.

Adding a dot of glue to the top of the door hanger.

Carefully turn the door hanger on its front.

Cut a length of ribbon about it 6-8 inches long and center it on the top portion of the back of the door hanger.

Apply a line of glue about an inch long on the right side where you want the ribbon hanger to be.

Press the ribbon into the glue.

Glue a ribbon hanger onto the back of the pizza pan.

Repeat on the left side to secure the ribbon hanger in place.
