If you have a Silhouette Cameo (or similar), then it is probably safe for me to assume you are a crafty sort.
Please note, I am not going to say that you should buy a Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Tool because it will save you money. It really is a tool to create things yourself, so consider it more of a hobby purchase than a frugal purchase. Consider that a disclaimer.
If you DO already have one, then you might as well maximize your purchase and get some use of it, right? Right.
Here are some Silhouette Cameo Projects I recently did:
I cut vinyl to replicate my favorite welcome mat, which was beyond falling apart. It makes me happy (if I ignore the water spots).
When we painted the front door, we also painted the door knocker. I used the Silhouette to add our name to the door knocker.
I cut templates to stencil canvases and canvas holders for my youngest’s new superhero bedroom. To create the canvases, I used acrylic artist paint and to paint the holders, I used fabric paint (inspired by WhipperBerry).
The coasters that keep our glasses sorted out were treated to custom labels.
Our homemade bath supplies also saw an upgrade with labels to identify the purpose of each type.
The kids have their toothbrushing supplies at hand in these cute containers. These were inspired by WhipperBerry.
My husband complained that for all my organization, he did not know where to find the tape refill. Boom – drawer labels.
Even the dish soap saw an upgrade, inspired by Lil Blue Boo.
I have found lots of great uses for the Silhouette – from the kids’ school projects to home decor projects to invitations to thank your and, of course, labeling projects. And I am not even very skilled at using it!
If you subscribe to the Silhouette blog, you will be notified when each week’s new free shape of the week is available (each Tuesday) and the blog offers great tutorials on how to use your machine. I even found the DVD useful – I just wish I would have watched it when I bought the machine!
Have fun creating!
