Print & Cut Pumpkin-Themed Bulletin Board

My name is Chad Boender, and I am a kindergarten teacher and author of a blog called Male Kindergarten Teacher. One thing I am asked about frequently is how I use my Silhouette CAMEO in my classroom. We teachers all know that creating a bulletin board in our classrooms can be time-consuming and tiresome. However, it’s a good thing I have my CAMEO®! This machine has been a lifesaver! Using my Silhouette machine in the classroom to create interactive bulletin boards, crafts, and activities has saved me so much time. One feature that I use consistently is the Print &…

Witch’s Hat With a Spooky Scene Inside

Hello, Silhouette friends! My name is Jennifer, and I am the owner and creative director behind The Craft Patch—a craft and DIY blog. Halloween is such a fun holiday, but I like decorations that are cute, not creepy. A few nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with a craft idea… what if you combined a fairy garden and a witches hat?  It’s not the first time a project idea has struck me in the middle of the night. As soon as I woke up in the morning, I got to work. The hat is see-through, and…

Candy Tummy Bats

When I think of Halloween, I think of CANDY! My absolute favorite candy is, well, anything chocolate. I love to think of new and unique ideas to hand out candy every year. This year, my little one started in kindergarten, so of course, we had to make the candy class friendly too. I wanted something that was not only cute but also fillable so that I could fill it with different types of candy and add a name to it as well. Once I knew what I wanted to make, I found the most adorable bat design. These batty treat…

Decorating with Metallic Temporary Tattoo Paper

Did y’all jump up and down like little kids when Silhouette revealed a bunch of cool new products back in July?! Don’t lie, you know you did. I for sure did and knew I had to get my hands on the metallic temporary tattoo paper! Even though I’m not a tattoo junkie, the out-of-the-box thinker in me wondered what else could this neat specialty material be applied to other than skin? After seeing how the regular temporary tattoo paper can be used on a variety of other objects like Easter eggs, I thought I would try it on a craft…
