Vinyl Sunflower cut to cover an "oops!"

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! After working at the Farmer's Market yesterday I spent most of today cutting out decorative covers for 3 x 5 spiral notepads. I sold one yesterday that was kind of a test product and decided to cover the rest of the two packages of a dozen each that I had bought at SAMS. Tonight I'll assemble some of them while watching the traditional Memorial Day specials on TV with DH. Speaking of DH...

My wonderful husband has caught on to the way crafters think. He wants to sell an old stereo cabinet that we bought second hand a few years ago and thought it would look better if we could cover a bad spot on the lid. The lid is pressed board covered with a vinyl laminate similar to contact paper, so when he accidentally spilled some scented oil on it the chemicals ate a hole about 3 inches in diameter in the vinyl. Kinda makes a person wonder what's in those scented oil plugins, huh? I pulled out some vinyl, fired up my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot and Voila! No more ugly hole! I forgot to take a before picture, so just use your imagination and I think you'll agree that the after picture is much better. Oh did I mention this thing has an 8-track in it??? If you're looking for one and live in the area we're participating in Berryton's city-wide garage sale (which is funny since  we don't live in the city, but they'll have maps to all of us rural folks's homes.) We're doing it the first two weekends in June. Good thing DH is done with the school year because he's got a lot of work to do to get ready!

Pin It!


  1. that looks very similar to one that my mom had when I was growing up, she got rid of hers in 1991, when we moved though.

  2. What a great idea to cover imperfections! :)
