Has anyone, besides me and my cheap self, noticed how outrageous the prices of bathroom garbage cans are??? I absolutely refuse to pay 20-40 dollars for a tiny little can for my bathroom when the giant trash can in my kitchen didn't even cost that.....seriously! So, what's a thrifty gal to do? Well, she waits for a good deal to sneak up on her. About a month ago I stumbled upon this white ceramic beauty at Target for $3.74, perfection! I was thrilled to have found this classic white can with a beautiful shape and nice weight.
Nice, but I think we can do better.
Enter my ever trusty Cricut, some grey vinyl, and the Sure Cuts a Lot software. I got a free svg file of this beautiful quatrefoil pattern from my sweet friend, Jenn at Tatertots and Jello. I imported it into my SCAL program and off I went to cut my vinyl. So easy and soooooo cute.....I LOVE it! Have I mentioned that I am completely and utterly addicted to cutting vinyl with my cricut? You can do sooooooooooo much with it. The possibilities are endless.
Click here for the link to the svg file, and here is the quatrefoil stencil that you can print out and use, if you don't have a cricut and scal software. Quatrefoil is an absolutely gorgeous pattern.....very graphic and oh so chic! I've stenciled it onto an artist's canvas, scrapbook paper, canvas dropcloth fabric, and now cut quatrefoil vinyl!!!! I can hardly stand how cute it is! If I had a money tree, I would love to do a whole wall with this pattern in vinyl. Yes, I could stencil it.....but let's be honest, I am way too lazy and way too impatient for all that! Having my Cricut cut the pattern out of vinyl is so much easier! Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to look for a money tree.
