I love the fake food you see that you can either buy or create yourself. I thought it would be neat to make some mini watermelon slices. You can add these to your summer decor, if you have a three tiered display that you use in your kitchen area you can add these to it.

Mini Watermelon Slices

Materials

  • 2 Sheets Red Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of White Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of Black Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of Green Cardstock
  • 1 Sheet of Vinyl

Tools

  • Cricut Maker or your favorite cutting machine
  • Scoring Wheel/Stylus
  • Glue
  • Standard Cutting Mat
  • Light Grip Cutting Mat
  • Weeding Tool
  • Spatula

Instructions

Step 1. Cutting Out the Mini Watermelons

First upload the mini watermelon pieces 1. Check to make sure the size is correct.

Select all and ungroup.

Next select the dotted lines

and change them from basic cut to score lines

Then select the score lines and the main red piece

Next click on the make it button

Next you will see the prepare screen

Once you have selected your paper size you can click on the continue button


The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the green Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut. 

Next upload the mini watermelon slices pieces 2. Check to make sure the size is correct.

select all and click on ungroup

Next select to the dotted lines

select the mat size and click on continue and do the same as above with selecting the paper weight.

Next select each set of words and weld them together

now you are ready to click on the make it button

the prepare screen will appear

I spaced the wording out some so it would be easier to separate for each watermelon slice you are creating.

You do not need to mirror the wording if you are using regular vinyl and not HTV.

Click on the continue button and select the type of vinyl you are using

Step 2. Assembling Your Watermelon Wedge

First taking the Front piece of the slice and the bottom, glue them together.

Starting with the red panels

put glue on the larger panels on the back
