DIY Round Up: 5 Easy Valentine's Day Gifts With Adhesive Vinyl

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to show everyone in your life a little extra love. My favorite way to do this is with small, thoughtful, handmade gifts. Today, I'm sharing with you 5 easy, yet thoughtful, Valentine's Day gifts you can create using adhesive vinyl and inexpensive blanks.

1. For The Fashionista: Monogrammed Trinket Dish

A trinket dish makes a great gift for the trendy ladies in your life. Whether it's your mom or your bestie, every woman needs a place to drop her earrings at the end of the day.

To create this monogrammed trinket dish I used Craftables metallic gold chrome adhesive vinyl. The chrome vinyl is thicker than standard adhesive vinyl so when you cut it, adjust the blade pressure to "more" to ensure a clean cut.

*The font used for the monogram is Magnolia Bold.

2. For The Coffee Lover: Custom Coffee Mug
