DIY: Coffee Beans Frame / Tutorial: Cuadro granos de cafe



After a time, a new DIY tutorial! The truth is that I have seen this frame in a coffee shop and I love it. So I decided to recreate it for you! This can be a perfect gift for a coffee lover or a new item to decor your home. 

Después de un tiempo, vuelvo con un tutorial! La verdad que vi este cuadro en una cafetería acá en Buenos Aires (a ver si pueden adivinar cual es!) y me dieron ganas de recrearlo con un tutorial para ustedes. Puede ser un regalo perfecto para algún/a amante del café o para decorar vuestras casas :)

You will need: coffee beans (of course), a frame wih depth , a silicone sealer, white vinyl and I use a Silhoutte Studio Machine, but since they are just letters maybe you can find an alphabet sticker! (also I had to paint my frame...)  

Lo que van a necesitar es: un cuadro con fondo (si están en Bs As yo compré el mio en Once), Fastix para pegar todo, papel contac blanco (si consiguen stickers de letras blancas se ahorran de este paso cortando el contac). Mi cuadro vino sin pintar así un paso adicional fue pintarlo.

So the first step is fill it with beans, I think I use around 300grams, it depends on how depth is your frame... I recomend sifting it a bit so you remove any dust that may have. And if you also need it to paint the frame as me, let it dry for a while, if not the beans will stick to the paint.

Entonces el primer paso, es llenar la base de granos de café, yo creo que use alrededor de 300 gramos, pero depende del tamaño de su cuadro y la profundidad. Si pintaron el cuadro como yo, déjenlo secar bien sino se les van a pegar los granos a la pintura.

The next step is to glue the two parts of the frame together.

Después con Fastix en todo el borde pegamos las dos partes.

And no comes the vinyl creation process! I used my Silhoutte Studio, which I didn't use for at least 3 years, and I was impress the keep updating the software in their website, so I was able to download it and installed super fast!

Y ahora viene la parte de hacer el vinilo (que si consiguieron stickers se la saltean). Yo use mi Silhoutte Studio para esto, lo cual me sorprendió que después de 3 años de no usarla, pude bajarme el software actualizado en un segundo y ponerla a andar nuevamente (habla muy bien de la marca!)

 I just used Bebas for the font, and I put very little pressure for the cut, and medium spead, since it is vinyl and you don't need to cut it too deep.

Para la font use Beba, y en los settings puse presión muy baja a la cuchilla y velocidad media, porque dado que es papel contac no necesitamos que corte todo sino la primera capa que es la que tiene el sticker.

 But still low pressure was quite a lot and I got my vinyl cut all the way trough (it has worth the try haha

Pero bueno incluso con presión baja llego a cortar todo jaja

Then I just used my cutting mat as a guide and start transfering to the glass (I know there are this tools which are much more professional than doing with the hands but well... I just didn't have it)

Después usé la base de corte de la Silhoutte como guía y fuí poniendo las letras en orden, generalmente estas máquinas vienen con una espatulita para hacer justamente esto de manera más profesional pero no pude encontrar la mía....
