A Fabulous Silhouette Vinyl Tutorial!

Have you tried vinyl yet? It's really quite simple! 
Not convinced yet!?  Well, let's show you just a little of what you can do with the Silhouette Vinyl!
Today we are using the Pear Blossom Silhouette cut and the brown vinyl 
to create a personalized Teacher Gift!

We are going to start by bringing in the Pear Blossom cut into
our software then right-clicking and selecting 'ungroup'.

Next size the image to meet your needs.  We used 6.105" x 4.000".

Cut your vinyl to fit the area of your cut and place it on your mat.  Load your mat and then press the 'Send to Silhouette' button.  Change your cut settings to 'vinyl', adjust your blade, and press 'cut'.

After you have cut the image, unload your mat and remove the top layer of vinyl.

Your image should look similar to this..

 Pull the remaining image off of the vinyl backing sheet and gently place on the glass container, smoothing the areas as you apply it to remove any bubbles.

Use the text tool to create the teacher name and cut as we did the image above.  
Tie a large ribbon around the top of the container and add gems to the three flowers as shown.


Fill the container with pencils and your gift is ready!
Vinyl is so easy to use and the possibilities are endless!
Click HERE and use the code SAMANTHA at checkout.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Without your readership, I wouldn't be doing a blog.

My blog is supported by sponsors and affiliates. If you decide to make a purchase through my affiliate links, I am paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional. These commissions help to keep the rest of my content free, and allow me to blog more often.

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.

Thank you for supporting my blog!
