Cutting Stencil on Cricut

  • Go to Design Space Canvas and select Make It.
  • Place the vinyl onto the standard-grip mat. Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space to cut the image out.
  • Once the image is cut, weed the excess iron-on vinyl from the backing sheet.

Using the Vinyl Stencil

  • Apply the vinyl stencil to the handle of the wooden spoon, press into place.
  • Using an ink pad and a sponge, apply ink to the stencil by rubbing the sponge in ink and then rubbing over the stencil on the spoon handle.
  • When the vinyl stencil is removed you will see exactly where you need to burn the handle. You can use a pencil and outline the stencil as well. Although I think the ink is much faster.

Using the Wood Burning Tool

  • Using the wood-burning tool, carefully go over the inked letters.
