Silhouette Matchbox Tutorial {Encore Post #4}

Is box was created using my Silhouette Portrait Cutting Tool .

Supplies:




This box can be enlarged to fit the gift that you are giving and will hold a keychain, or other small gift. If you have the cameo you will be able to make it even larger.

Cut Files Used
Steps:
  1. Cut all files
  2. Assemble the matchbox. (I use a bone folder to make the creases)
  3. Adhere 2 doily borders to the center of the matchbox.
  4. Use a Glue Dot to adhere the first flower to the Matchbox
  5. Curl and fluff the 3D Peony and assemble largest to smallest with Glue Dots.
  6. Add the pearl to the center of 3D Peony
  7. Adhere the 3D Peony to the box with a Glue Dot
  8. Enjoy your creation.

Silhouette Conversion Tutorial {Encore Post #3}

These are roses that I have been creating for a spring wreath. The flowers were created out of a JPEG download that I found online and turned into a cut file.

This is an easy way of turning any pattern into a cut file.

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the JPEG image in Photoshop
  2. Use the background eraser to erase all the white from around and inside the shapes.
  3. Save as a PNG file
  4. Open the Silhouette Studio and add this file to your library
  5. All the image to the page that opens
  6. Use the Trace Function and trace the image
  7. You will now have a cut design that you can save to you library and use again and again.
If you would like this cut file, I will gladly send it to you for no charge. All you need to do is email me

Silhouette Product Packaging {Encore Post #2}

I decided to try to make some packaging with my Silhouette for last weekend's festival. I played around with brackets and tags to create the perfect shape.



This is the finished tag after I added the bookmarks.

Here you can see the cut that is made in the center of the tag. I also added a whole at the top for hanging either on a hook or adding a ribbon to it.

On the back I added a stamp with my company information and it is ready to go.

This shape is set to cut 4 on and 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Cardstock.

I used Kraft Paper Cardstock and I set my blade to 7 and speed to 2 just to make sure that the fine tip did not get messed up as it was cut.

Silhouette Ideas {Encore Post #1}

This was made using a glass from the Dollar Tree and two colors of vinyl to create a great gift item for your favorite person to show a little team spirit.

I added a saying to a plate also from the Dollar Tree to create another great gift. This would make a nice housewarming gift.

This is a plate just like the first one and I decided to create a little more stylized design on this one and I really like the way it turned out. I would have loved to have had better pictures but nighttime doesn't help with that.

Hand painted Signs



These signs started out with lettering in pencil and then because I'm doing so many I didn't want to to rub off before they were painted so I used a sharpie marker to go over the lines. 


I then used black craft acrylic paint to fill on each letter. 
The center sign doesn't have slanted letters there is a small dip in the ground. ��
