 Gold Polka Dot Vase DIY!
You'll need some gold vinyl and a bud vase that needs a makeover!
I used my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine to cut this metallic gold vinyl!
It's so wonderful!  I work with Cricut as a blogger and frequently receive goods in exchange for posts.

So How Does the Cricut Machine Work?
Check out my "Getting Started" post.
It is so easy.  You know those books for dummies?  This is like the cutting machine equivalent.  It is so easy to set up.  So easy to follow the screen prompts, plug it in, pick a project and go!
It walks you through projects using the machine so right from the beginning you are comfortable with it.  There is no guessing at the start.
You will love it and find yourself using it for everything!  You can run it off your computer or device through the Cricut Design Space app and bluetooth.
Just load your Metallic Foil Vinyl on the cutting mat.
I used the "shapes" button in Cricut Design Space and selected circle.
Adjust it the size you want and then just duplicate it over and over!
Then Click go. Cricut will optimize the shapes, so no matter where you put them on the screen, it will cut them out with the best use of your materials.  That is awesome.
If you don't want it to adjust your layout, just select your layers and "weld" them and it will keep them exactly as you have them.
Then just peel off the vinyl dots like stickers and adhere them to the vase.
The square shape make it ideal.
Looks adorable and adds just a fun touch of metallic!
Metallic Foil is so much fun.  It shimmers and shines!
Add some flowers and enjoy!
