For Valentine’s Day I created a wall design to go around gallery of pictures shown in the post “To my Valentine“. Frankly, I was surprised it turned out as good as it did.
The idea started with just putting a saying together. I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and I wrote out and cut “the gift of love brings infinite gifts” using a font I found on dafont.com called “I love what you do“.
Then I thought what would happen if I made it look like a heart? The worst that would happen is I’d just peel it off – right!?. So off I went.
Using painters tape, I placed each piece and shifted them around as needed. It was at this point that I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because it looked pretty busy. But again, what did I stand to lose?
Here is how I did it: After I placed each piece. I made sure it was level and symmetric with the piece across from it.
Then I flipped the piece up and pulled off the transfer tape’s backing.
Using a card (this is what I had handy ) I smoothed the Silhouette Design onto the wall.
Then, I grabbed the painters tape and slowly pull off the transfer tape.
And then I was done with that piece.
Once I saw several pieces on the wall, I knew I’d love it!
If you haven’t taken advantage of the Silhouette Sale going on right now until 2/14/2014, I hope this helps inspire you and go buy one of the best tangible gifts I’ve been given! The creativity is endless with this machine! I LOVE my Silhouette Cameo!
