We all know I love Harry Potter. I mean, I've showed you this tattoo before right??
When I signed up to do this vinyl blog hop, I knew, almost instantly, that I needed to do something Harry Potter related! And when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I looked at my new, completely naked laptop. See my old laptop had the Hogwarts House Crest on it, and this new laptop, well, it didn't.
And seeing as I hadn't used my Silhouette since our kitchen went dead back in January, I figured it was a good time to wipe all the dust off it and get to work. After I did the design for the decal, I loaded up some black vinyl from Expressions Vinyl and got it cutting!
As I was thinking about what I wanted to put on my laptop, I thought back to my Harry Potter inspired tree skirt and remembered the foot prints that I made up for that design. Instantly I knew that I needed to have them on my laptop. I mean, my laptop is kinda like the Marauder's Map right? All I have to do is open it, type in my password and then I can find out pretty much where everyone is based on their Facebook checkins...I mean...right?
After the vinyl was all cut, I did a little weeding on it and used transfer paper to pick it up.
I made sure that my laptop was wiped clean since you need a clean surface to adhere to. Also, can we take a minute to bask in the beauty of the space gray Apple MacBook? So sexy right?
Once I lined it up where I wanted it, I used a plastic scraper to transfer it.
And then, ahem, magic happened!
See what I did there?
I also was messing around and made a new Deathly Hallows for my keyboard.
And because I messed up on the first Deathly Hallows by making it too small, I put that one on my Silhouette. Because, why not?
