Making a few decorations and listening to my favorite Christmas music is what’s happening in my creative space today. How about you, what are you creating today?
My CAMEO is extra busy during the holidays because it makes my DIY decorating life so easy! Like this glitter letter garland. You can make these several different ways, but let me show you how I made mine…
First, in Silhouette studio I used the type tool type Merry & Bright making sure that it all fit nicely on the mat.
Then, I placed a piece of Silhouette chipboard on the cutting mat and loaded it into the Silhouette. Next I selected chipboard from the cut settings menu, adjusted the blade accordingly and clicked cut.
After the letters were cut out, I ran them through the sewing machine to stitch them together, leaving enough extra thread at the beginning and end to use for hanging.
Then, I cut the letters out of double sided adhesive. Back in Silhouette studio, I opened the page window and selected Letter as the paper size.
Then, I ungrouped the letters and arranged them to fit on the new page size.
I placed the double sided adhesive on the mat as shown in Silhouette studio, yellow side down, and loaded the cutting mat into the CAMEO. Then I selected double sided adhesive from the menu in the cut settings window, adjusted the blade according to those settings and clicked cut.
Once the letters were cut out, I peeled off the yellow backing and adhered them right on top of the chipboard letters.
Then I peeled off the white layer to expose the adhesive and covered them with glitter.
I tapped the letters to remove any excess glitter and they were all set to hang! Ahhh, sparkle!
