Valentine’s Day Decor
This is not a sponsored post. I just love using my Silhouette Cameo!
After Christmas I bought a pack of battery powered lights, thinking I’d do the classic frosted/vinyled glass block craft and put that on my mantel, but I remembered I had downloaded the free shape of the week last year from the Silhouette Design Store, and decided to tackle that 3D project instead. I followed their instructions to a T and was able to assemble to Heart Marquee with success! It looks so snazzy lit up.
I loved the grouping of frames with the marquee on the Silhouette blog post, so I decided to try to replicate it with the frames I had on hand. I cut out the quatrefoil out of matte black wall vinyl after measuring my 11 x 14″ floating frame and transferred it to the glass with transfer tape.
I downloaded a grey pinstripe digital background paper from a store on Etsy and printed it out on my printer instead of running to the craft store for one piece of paper. Then I cut out the XOXO with Silhouette’s double-sided adhesive and sprinkled black glitter on it. Totally beats working with wet glue + glitter! Viola! The look, recreated! I had an extra shadowbox frame, so I put the Run away with me in it (it was in the floating frame last year from a project inspired by the Beautiful Mess gals.)
I wanted to make a Valentine’s themed throw, so I cut out the Love Stack image from the Silhouette Design store out of heat transfer vinyl, and cut out white for the background (offset/outline) and gold for the lettering. I’m chuffed about how it turned out! I picked up an 18×18″ pillowcase I found in the clearance section from Hobby Lobby ($3.49) and pillow insert with the same measurements, and my throw was complete in under 30 minutes!
