best DIY crafts to do with vinyl

We've had so many new customers at Craftables and we keep getting questions on the potential of our vinyl selection and the limit of these machines. Whether you have a Silhouette or a Cricut, or any other craft cutting machine, the craft ideas are limitless! Also keep in mind that these DIY vinyl craft ideas span the breadth of our entire product line- permanent vinyl, temporary vinyl, iron-on vinyl, stencil vinyl, glitter vinyl, flock vinyl, all the vinyl! We hope these projects inspire you to try new materials and techniques. If you have any questions, ask them below!
