Chinese New Year Alphabet For Paper And Vinyl

2021 is the year of the Ox, from February 11th we can celebrate all that is wonderful about the Ox in Chinese culture. Thus I have created a special Chinese New Year alphabet to celebrate the trustworthy faithful Oxen amongst us. Also check out my Celebration Alphabet which is also perfect for New Year Celebrations.

It is believed that the Ox ranks second in the Chinese zodiacs because it helped the Rat, but was later tricked by it. The myth goes that the Jade Emperor declared that the order of zodiac signs would be based on the arrival order of 12 animals. The Ox could have arrived the first, however offered a ride to the much smaller Rat. Yet when arriving at their destination the Rat just jumped to the winning line ahead of Ox, and thus Ox lost its first place. There is lots of useful information here if you want to read more about the characteristics of the Ox.

Simply pull your chosen elements you want to use and weld together, it’s a long process and can take a day or 2 to do a full alphabet. However is so rewarding once finished.

It’s important to make sure you join all of your elements together, and also consider what media your projects is for vinyl is better for smaller intricate cuts. If you want an alphabet to cut smaller, ensure the cut is not too complicated and fiddly. However on larger projects and vinyl you can add more detail.

Cutting Your Chinese New Year Alphabet

When you’ve chosen your Chinese New Year PNG Alphabet letters to cut, send to your Cricut. Ensure you use your brayer to roll the paper, vinyl or card to adhere to the mat and remove any bubbles or creases.

Also make sure you set your material and cut pressure to match whatever material you’re cutting. If I’m using card, I always set my pressure to more for a cleaner cut. Additionally I find Vinyl will cut much smaller that card.

When your Cricut has finished cutting, discard the outer area of the paper/ vinyl this pulls away easily. 

Now lift a corner of your letter with tweezers, the letter will then lift away in one piece.Use the weeding tool to remove any areas that need gently weeding and removing.
