Use the Cricut Explore to cut your favorite inspirational quote out of vinyl and apply to your bathroom mirror for a daily reminder.
This is one of those super easy, home decor craft projects, and it makes me smile every time I see this Vinyl Mirror Inspiration in my girl’s bathroom.
I have three beautiful girls. They have manners (most of the time), smile, laugh and tell me the most insane stories.
That is until it is time to get ready in the morning. On school mornings they transform into strange, loud girls, with grouchy glaring eyes that will pierce your soul if you don’t brush your teeth faster and get out of their bathroom, NOW! And it’s not unusual to hear “It’s my turn!” or “Stop locking the door!” echoing through the house as they play tug of war with the bathroom door.
Now I’m not some crazy lady that thinks vinyl mirror inspiration is going to solve all of her children’s fighting (unless of course you have magical powers and are willing to cast a spell!) But maybe, just maybe if they are reading they won’t be screaming.
The quote comes from Christopher Robin. I’m not a Winnie the pooh fanatic, but I love the saying and what it means, and with three girls I work hard to keep negative talk out of their heads.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – Christopher Robin

How to Make Mirror Vinyl Quote Inspiration with Cricut Explore
I used my Cricut to cut the vinyl. It was very easy to create since it was only text.
After the Cricut is finished you will need to remove the extra vinyl around the text so you are only left with the letters.
To apply the vinyl, you will also need carrier sheets. This allows you to pick up the image, or in this case, the vinyl text, keeping it all in line and not stretching out the vinyl. You lay it on top of the vinyl and rub all over to get it to stick to the vinyl.
Make sure that your surface is clean. I put it on my mirror, but you would use the same process for any other surface you would use. So make sure it is clean so the vinyl will stick nicely.
Pull the carrier sheet away for the vinyl sheet. The vinyl should stick to the carrier sheet and pull completely away from the vinyl backing. If it doesn’t put the pieces back together and rub more to get the vinyl to stick to the carrier sheet.
Align where you want and rub all over. You really only get one chance at this because once you put it down the vinyl will stick more to your surface than your carrier sheet. So apply carefully.
Pull the carrier sheet away.
Done! I am hoping that my girls will see this and read this every day. And when their mornings don’t start off in the best of ways, they will have good positive thoughts pushing them through.
