This frame cost roughly $2 in materials. Well, it’s made of $2 worth of materials! The frame was $1 at Michaels. I designed all of the flourishes and adornments specifically for it in Illustrator, cut them out of shiny black Oracal 651 and applied after painting the frame white and sealing it with dishwasher safe mod podge. Which is weird because I have regular mod podge! Out of sight out of mind, I guess.
This was my first completed project with my cameo. I sent it to my grandmother as a surprise!
This flower is hanging on my wall above my desk. It cost about 20 cents or so to make (I had the shadowbox, but that was about $4). If you’d like to cut it yourself there is a .DXF file you can download and use in Silhouette Studio in the blog post I wrote about it here: Design a Flower Cutout in Adobe Illustrator to Use With Your Silhouette Machine
My second project : ) Inspired by a group of amazing crafters I was excited to learn something new. This project was incredibly smooth, if somewhat time consuming. One of those things that makes you feel like you can totally -do- this!
I recently shared a walkthrough featuring this guy. Something I’m very proud of, made for that beautiful boy I started this post with! See my method here: I made a Spider-Man Light Box with Adobe Illustrator && my Silhouette Cameo!
And a set of birthday invites. The first birthday invites I’ve digitally designed, print and cut! Another confidence-booster : )
