Vinyl Pirate Ship Candy Container

When Fantabulous Cricut posted the blog hop/challenge to use vinyl I thought oh no. Then I found the vinyl I had rcvd from Cricut in a shipment that was not for me and I yes I did phone them & let them know & they told me to keep it. Well, it is white magnetic vinyl and requires the deep cut blade which I thought I had one of but cannot find so perhaps it is somewhere in my craft room not to be found easily or I did not have one at all. Then I found the black vinyl I had bought along with some white & blue and never used.

So, the Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow fan I am decided to make a Clean & Simple CAS creation using the black vinyl.

Used Life's A Party Cricut cartridge to make the Pirate ship. I used blade setting 6 and pressure 2 for a "kiss cut" so I would not have to use the transfer tape. It cut on the first try. Carefully removed the image and the recycled medicine/pill container was becoming a Pirate candy container.

Stamped K Andrew Designs Pirate Tales & Fish Scales sentiment on Avery all-purpose label.

Filled with Hershey candy and tied off with appropriate black & white glitter skull ribbon.

Now, I'm ready to try another vinyl project.
