Christmas begins with Christ Vinyl Decor with Cricut Explore Air 2

I used items I received from Cricut in exchange for this post.
Christmas begins with Christ Vinyl Decor!
I love my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine, it is simply so quick and easy to make especially amazing cards, decorations, crafts and handmade gifts!  I'd love to show you how quick we can make a decoration and a couple of tricks and tips along the way.
If you aren't sure if a Cricut Machine is right for you, check out this post.
And this one if you want to make some extra money with your post.
So here's the simple DIY for this sign.  Make yours say whatever you like.
I picked "Christmas begins with Christ"
You will need:
Regular vinyl/Transfer Tape
Patterned paper
Picture frame
Barn Star or other small decor piece
Hot glue/gun
Begin by opening up Cricut Design Space™ and use the text tool and fonts to design the decor you like.  This alone is the HARDEST part to any project.  The design phase.
Then here's the trick: Select the "mirror image" button and cut the design in reverse.
Scale the image to the size that will fit nicely in your frame.
My frame is 8 by 8 inches.

Now weed the vinyl, and yes, it's all reversed.
Add some transfer tape and place on the glass removed from the frame.
Rub with the scraper and pull back the transfer tape.
Now you can slip the glass right back in the frame and the vinyl will be instantly reversed!
Add some scrapbook paper and close up the frame.  It's a great way not to snag or peel the vinyl over the years of storage and decorating.
Now you can hot glue the star or little wreath or unique decor on the top and it's ready to display.
