Silhouettes with the Silhouette; plus a promotion!


I busted out my Silhouette Machine again today.

This time I decided to dress up two of my lamps!

I cut out a few flourishes with my Silhouette Machine and added them to some lamp shades.



It was so easy. I just cut them out on white card stock with my Silhouette Machine, and then used a teensy tiny bit of lightly tacky glue to stick them to the inside of the shades.


When the lamp is turned on you can see the flourish silhouette. Isn’t this bird just so adorable?


And the fun part… when the lamp is off, you can’t see the image anymore. It’s just a fun little surprise when the light turns on.


While I was making my cute little flourish silhouettes my son came in and begged me to make something for him. We browsed the Silhouette Store and found these fun 3D images of a football and a baseball cap!


Aren’t they just so cool?

My son sure thought so!


The cap used one sheet of brown card stock, but the football we decided to make life-sized, so it took 6 sheets of card stock.


He’s the next Colt McCoy!

    So ashamed to say I got a Silhouette for Christmas (my hubs RAWKS! Was a huge surprise) and have yet to even plug it in!! Shame, SHAME! When I do you best believe I’m making one of those birdies for a lamp in our living room. I’ve been wanting to do something to spruce it up and this is IT! Thanks! :o)

  14. @Amanda,

    Thank you so much! I’ve finally hopped on the bird bandwagon!

  15. @Orangesugar,

    You can browse the shapes if you go to their site and download the software for your computer. You obviously wont have the machine to cut the images, but from the software on your computer you can view all the bazillions of shapes.
