two containers one with self rising flour the other with two ingredient dough recipeTwo ingredient dough was borne out of WW making fat free Greek Yogurt zero points. WW-ers saw that as a challenge and thus, two ingredient dough became the next big thing. It is very versatile and can be used for things like pizza dough and cinnamon rolls (my personal favorite). I make it so often that my Self-Rising flour needed a container of its own. It keeps the flour fresher and it looks pretty!

Don’t know what to do with Two Ingredient Dough? Check out these recipes for ideas:

Customized Container: Two Ingredient Dough

This customized Two Ingredient Dough (2ID) container is fairly easy to make but it requires a Cricut machine (I have the Cricut Maker and I LOVE it). The lettering is too detailed to cut by hand, or at least too detailed for ME to cut by hand but you’re welcome to try!

If you don’t know what a Cricut machine is, simply put it is an automated device that cuts out designs or patterns that you create on the Cricut Design Space app (which is very similar to Adobe Illustrator). You can use all sorts of materials – from paper to leather to wood to material to many others – to make whatever you can dream up. I have to say, it’s really cool and fun!

I created both an SVG file and a PDF file (which are fancy terms for the patterns) for the design of the letters. You can get both templates for free by clicking below:

SELF-RISING FLOUR LETTERING

STEP 1: Uploading the Self-Rising Flour SVG File

Download the SVG file and upload it into Cricut Design Space. The file will look like this:

STEP 2: Cutting the Self-Rising Flour SVG

Choose your desired color of vinyl adhesive and cut per the Cricut machine prompts. I used black Cricut Premium Matte Removable Vinyl but you can whatever color and type of vinyl you wish. After cutting the vinyl on your matte will look like  this:

PLEASE NOTE: If you don’t have a Cricut machine and want to cut the pieces out by hand, you can use the PDF file as a guide. I strongly recommend using a Cricut machine to cut these letters rather than scissors but leave that option to you.

STEP 3: Weeding the Self-Rising Flour letters

After cutting the Self-Rising Flour letters, carefully peel away the excess vinyl that is not part of the letters from the liner.

Be careful not to pull off the letters.

You should now have just the letters stuck to the liner. The letters will still have excess vinyl in the letters like “o” and “s”.

Using a sharp tool like the Cricut Weeder, carefully remove the small excess vinyl pieces remaining in the letters until all letters are complete.

STEP 4: Transferring the Letters to Transfer Tape

Next, cut a piece of Transfer Tape large enough to remove the letters from the vinyl liner and transfer them to the container.

Once the liner is removed, carefully place the transfer tape over the letters starting from the middle and smoothing the tape out over all the letters. Use the XL scraper to smooth the tape down thoroughly and with no bubbles.

You will now have the transfer tape covering all letters.

Next, starting in the corner, begin to slowly peel away the transfer tape making sure the letters are stuck to the tape. If a letter doesn’t seem to be adhered to the tape, smooth it back down and go over it with the scraper again to make sure the letter attaches. This is a slow process so be sure not to rush this step.

Once the tape is removed, all the letters will be ready to transfer to the container.

STEP 5: Applying the Letters to the Container

Before applying the letters to the container, make sure the container has a clean dry surface. When container is ready, determine where you want to put the letters. Once decided, attach the transfer tape to the container, smoothing it out using the XL Scraper.

The tape should be smoothly applied with no bubbles.

Begin to gently pull away the transfer tape, making sure the letters are sticking to the container. If a letter isn’t sticking, smooth it back down with the XL scraper a few times to make sure it isn’t coming up with the transfer tape.

Once all the tape is removed, the container will look like this:

STEP 3: Weeding the Two Ingredient Dough letters

After cutting the Two Ingredient Dough letters, carefully peel away the excess vinyl that is not part of the letters from the liner.

begin removing excess vinyl

Removing the excess vinyl from the Two Ingredient Dough will be more difficult than the Self Rising Flour as the letters are smaller and there are more of them.

You should now have just the letters stuck to the liner. The letters will still have excess vinyl in the letters like “o” and “g”.

STEP 4: Transferring the Lettering to Transfer Tape

Next, cut a piece of Transfer Tape large enough to remove the lettering from the vinyl liner and transfer them to the container. Peel back the liner from the tape. Once the liner is removed, carefully place the transfer tape over the letters starting from the middle and smoothing the tape out over all the letters. Use the XL scraper to smooth the tape down thoroughly and with no bubbles.

This is a slow process so be sure not to rush this step.

Do not rush this step especially with these small letters. Once all the tape is removed, the container will look like this:
