I found all my supplies at Jo-Ann, including the cute striped clutch. Jo-Ann makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon. So you can make something new & get a deal;)
Start by making the "Ahoy!" lettering out of vinyl. I used the Pacifico font and made mine about 1.5in high by 5in wide and cut it out on my Cricut machine using the settings 3-2-3. If you don't have a cutting machine, make a stencil by printing your lettering out on card stock and cutting it out with a utility knife. Then use that to trace cut out the vinyl.
Remove all the negative vinyl away from the lettering (aka weeding). Also remove the dot from the exclamation point.
Peel the paper away from the transfer tape and place the tape over the vinyl, burnishing it with something hard like this stick that came with the transfer tape. Pull the backing away and the lettering should stick to the tape (if it doesn't, keep burnishing).
Center the lettering on the clutch and then burnish into place. Since this wallet was padded, I also pressed & smoothed the lettering down with my hands after removing the transfer tape to make sure it was attached well.
Clip off the shank on the back of the button with cutter.
Use the E6000 glue to attach button to clutch just under the exclamation point:
Now you've got a cute, nautical-style clutch and it only took minutes to make!
