Wow it is almost June. June people! Already. So to celebrate the upcoming summer fun memories to be made, the Xyron design team has been hard at work to bring you not only summer decorations, but a chance to win a free Xyron Mega Runner®. See below for your chance to win! 

For my summer project, I was in the midst of brainstorming when the ice cream truck was heard down the block. Boom, brainstorm done, make an ice cream truck. 

I decided to convert a Mail Truck file, found in the Silhouette store, to an Ice Cream Truck. Once I got all the pieces cut with my Cameo 3, I decided to have a bit of fun with it. 

First I ran all the yellow pieces through my Sizzix Big Shot with a polka dot Darice embossing folder. 
 Then I grabbed a gel pen and did a little bit of detailing on the windows.
I decided to use white vinyl for the 'Ice Cream' and 'Caution Children' wording on the truck.
Once I had everything cut out, embossed, and gel penned I organized it in order of assembly
I used both my Xyron Mega Runner®  and Teresa Collins Mega Runner by Xyron® because I have different sized tapes in both.
The Teresa Collins Mega Runner by Xyron® I used for smaller/thinner places to adhere and the Xyron Mega Runner®  for the larger pieces.
Next I detailed the wheels while flat and adhered them to the truck with some simple AC Elements Brads.
For the Summer frame insert and banner, I decided to use the print and cut feature
The frame was easy to assemble with the Xyron Mega Runner®

  1. My favorite summer memory is going to Myrtle Beach with the family. We always have so much fun together and it is so nice to get away before the grandkid has to go back to school.
