Tips:
   1. Slightly overlap zig zag border when joining pieces. You may need to shift the zig zag up or down a little as you go around the drink bucket to compensate for the curves.
   2. Cut an extra zig zag to use when piecing together the beginning and end.
   3. Alcohol inking can be added to vinyl to give dimension and pattern to the vinyl (for instructions on how to ink, see last week’s article).
