Paper Treat Box And A Silhouette Promotion

Paper Treat Box

One of the many benefits to owning a Silhouette machine is being able to customize a paper treat box using any scrapbook paper you can find! Which is exactly what I did to house these cute mini cheesecakes I made.  I cut 4 different patterned scrapbook paper, and then swapped the band for each box so that it was contrasting when put together. Using one 12x12 sheet of paper will fit 4 mini cheesecakes in it. I spread the design to fit the width of the paper as best I could. I did have … [Read more...]

You Are “Berry” Special And A Silhouette Promotion

You Are "BERRY" Special- A 3D Paper Craft

These adorable 3D strawberries are sure to brighten any crummy day. While they don't appear to be edible, untie the 3D paper berry to reveal a special treat inside! My mom and I filled them with about 4 Hershey's Kisses (but you could fill with any small candy). On Sunday, she passed them out to her Relief Society sisters who have callings in other auxiliaries to serve as a reminder to them that even though they don't attend Relief Society, the presidency is thinking of them.

Decorative Stained Tile And A Silhouette Vinyl Promotion

Decorative Stained Tile Tutorial

 Vinyl is good for much more than just a decoration. It can be used as a tool for decorating as well. Vinyl makes a great stencil, let me show you how to create a Decorative Stained Tile. I had an image and quote I was excited to use, and cut it out on my CAMEO. After weeding out the negative, I used transfer paper and applied it to my 12x12 tile. Using StazOn ink pads (because it is a permanent solvent ink), I began rubbing my tile. I prefer using ink pads because it will dry super fas … [Read more...]
