I have recently become addicted to crafting with vinyl...the possibilities are just endless. I have a question though...I have been doing some monogrammed frames and initially applied the vinyl to the outside of the glass, then added another sheet of glass,creating a true floating frame. This necessitates purchasing two frames, and the second is just for the glass...not very cost effective. Does anyone have any tips/tricks they'd be willing to share regarding applying vinyl to the inside of the glass? I am having a few issues with bubbles and some color differences due to applying too much pressure when trying to remove bubbles. Help!! Thanks in advance y'all!!

I would look up the "wet method" of applying vinyl to glass. I've seen videos on how to do that. As for your floating frame, no need to buy two frames, people have been gluing the piece of glass to the frame to hold the glass in place. Have fun! BigGrin

You can also get glass cut at a hardware store, such as Ace Hardware. I would think Home Depot or Lowes would also do this for you.

Couldn't you print it in mirror image? Then you cld apply to the back of the glass and it would be against the wall. The front side would be smooth. I don't know if I'm explaining it correctly - are you understanding and is this a possibility?

I buy actual float frames, that way I don't have to buy two separate frames.

I made this with a float frame. The movie reels are on the bottom piece of glass and the word "movies" is on the top piece.


Of course, if you wanted the smooth look you wouldn't need to put anything on the top piece of glass.

Where do you find floating frames at a reasonable price? I have seen them at Michaels but they are expensive.

When I buy true floating frames at Ms, I get them with a coupon. Otherwise, I buy frames at Dollar Tree for the extra glass. I do have quite a few frames starting to pile up though! But since they only cost a dollar and I got what I needed, if I can't use them in other projects, I'll donate them.
