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
and change them to score lines
Then select the score lines and the green bottom piece of the watermelon slice
Now you are ready to click on make it and the prepare screen will appear
select the mat size and click on continue and do the same as above with selecting the paper weight.
Next upload the wording into design space
select all and ungroup
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.
Next take the back piece
and fold the back piece on the score lines
then glue the top tab to the other side
Next glue the green bottom piece to the back piece
Next fold the tabs on the back piece down
put glue on the tabs and glue the front piece to them
Now that your mini watermelon slice is together, put it aside and work on your panels
Starting with the red panels
put glue on the larger panels on the back
glue the matching black panel to the red panel
do this for all of the red and black panels
next take the green and white pieces
glue the green pieces to the white pieces
Next glue the red panels to the watermelon slice
then glue the rhine pieces to the red panels
Using transfer tape take the wording
and put transfer tape on the top of it so that you can put it on the bottom green panel
put the wording on the green bottom panel and remove the transfer tape
your mini watermelon slices should look like the photo below
