How to Make Your DIY Metallic Labels

We built the frame for this piece with a lip at the top because I knew I wanted to add the words “command center” to it. The only problem was that I wasn’t sure how to add the title. I was worried about painting them over the stain (seeping, sloppy painting and all that jazz!) and didn’t think the vinyl would stand out enough. When I saw this craft metal from Spellbinders it was as if a lightbulb went off! Metal labels! Of course!!!

Step-By-Step Tutorial for Your DIY Metallic Letters

The Spellbinders Platinum 6 Machine can cut so many materials, but the craft metal might be one of my favourites! Did you even know craft metal existed? Consider yourself enlightened. lol. You’re welcome.

To make the DIY metallic labels you need some craft metal as well as the Platinum 6 machine and the alphabet die-cuts. Just choose the letters that you want to cut out, place them over top of the craft metal and run them through the Platinum 6 machine.

You can make easy vinyl labels exactly the same way. Use the alphabet die cut, a piece of sticky vinyl and a platinum 6 machine.

After I cut out the letters, I attached the metal letters. I didn’t want to use a glue gun, and you can hear why in the video below. Beacon Power Tac Glue was perfect for the job!

All you have to do to attach the vinyl label is peel off the backing.

Watch this quick video tutorial to see how easy these DIY metallic labels are to make!
