DIY Party Week :: Plane Party

Welcome to DIY party week! Each day this week I’ll share a different party theme and project ideas you can create using your super fab Silhouette for each theme. I love a good party, and whether it’s just for the family, or for a neighborhood full of kids it can be one of a kind. By creating just about everything at home, your party is sure to be unique and if you use paper and other supplies you already have on hand, it’s good for the budget too!

Today’s party theme : Planes

You can design and print invitations right from Silhouette studio by using shapes from the online store. Print out an extra invitation, pop it in a frame and it doubles as party decor.  
Make all of the kiddos feel like a pilot with a 3d- Pilot Party Hat.

Send home treats as a ‘thanks for coming!’ in these cute little Pillow Box Party Favors

With a 12 x 12 cutting space you can create place mats to coordinate with the rest of the party decor. Then, to add some color to the plate use the banner element, also used on the invitation, to create this cute print and cut ‘eat cake!’ banner. 

Use different textures and 3-d elements by cutting some of the shapes out of fabric, like this stuffed fabric cloud.  Add a 3d paper airplane in a soda bottle or mason jar and you’ve got a fun centerpiece.

If you are new to using fabric with your Silhouette, here is a great tutorial…

Glad you stopped by today! Happy crafting!

      I need to see if this helps me.. I was trying to create some art to hang in a frame in the silhoutte that I could just print out.. it wouldn’t print the font or the line feature I drew with the pen. Not sure if there is something I need to hit so everything prints.
