I created this project as a thank you gift to the staff at DCWV for partnering with The Buckle Boutique on some recent projects.
I created their logo out of rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique! It was really pretty easy to do. The logo needed two main colors. black and yellow. I decided to make each square 5″ x 5″, so I marked that off on the back of the sticker sheet. Then I found the center of that square and loaded the rhinestone sticker sheet into my Cricut. Cutting directions for the rhinestone sticker sheets in your Cricut can be found HERE. I moved the blade until it was over the center point of the square. I then used the Center Point feature of my Cricut so that the letter I cut would be centered in that space.
First I cut the D out of the yellow rhinestone sticker sheet, and then I cut a black D to go into the space where I had just removed the yellow D that I cut . . . almost like doing a puzzle . . . you need a D shaped hole in the center of the yellow to place the black into.
I continued to do this for all of the letters. I believe I cut them at 4 1/2″. Then I decided to place them on a piece of chalkboard paper form DCWV that has a floral pattern on it. I thought that the black and yellow logo went well with the black chalkboard and the yellow flowers on this sheet.
Now, here is something that you DON’T see . . . when I went to stick the squares down I did not do a good job of lining things up. The adhesive is SO STRONG on the rhinestone sticker sheets that when I went to place the piece since things were not perfectly aligned it did not allow me to adjust it much. Not a problem! I cut some clear rhinestone sticker sheets to be the border and those also covered where things did not line up nice. If I were to do this again I would only remove PART of the backing from the rhinestone sticker sheets when I was placing the large squares. This would allow me to be able to adjust things if needed.
And that is my finished DCWV logo! This could also be a cute family wall hanging, if you have four people in your family and you did each person’s first initial. That would look amazing framed in a front entry!
