25 Valentine's Projects to make with your Silhouette! from the Silhouette Challenge FB Group

 

I am beyond excited to bring you the very first Silhouette Challenge Facebook Group ROUND-UP!  This group is full of amazing crafters ranging from just-got-my-machine-out-of-the-box Silhouette users to I-could-literally-build-a-house-using-my-Silhouette experts!  A bunch of these lovely ladies submitted Valentine’s projects to be featured in this Round-Up.  So, if you have a Silhouette (or are dreaming of one!) this round-up of Valentine’s Day projects is sure to inspire!

 

brought to you by The Silhouette Challenge Facebook Group!

In no particular order…

 

 1. Stenciled Valentine Heart Frames from Crafts by Courtney.  Courtney found these plain wooden frames for $1 each and gave them a major makeover!  Visit her tutorial to see how she made vinyl stencils and painted over them using acrylic paint and finishing wax!

2. Burlap Love Banner (with free cut file) from The Thinking Closet.  Lauren translated the word “love” into 10 different languages to create these neat heart shapes, cut them out of cardstock with her Cameo, then adhered them to burlap hearts.  She was even sweet enough to include the cut file for you to make your own!

4.  Geometric Heart Art from Lil’ Mrs. Tori.  Tori actually used heat transfer vinyl on a canvas to create this!  I had no idea you could do that, and I’m super psyched to give it a try.  Head on over for the full tutorial!  (And also check out her lovely Heart Paper Garland!)

5.  DIY Sweetheart Glass Block Tutorial (with free cut file) from My Paper Craze.  Becky and Glenna over at My Paper Craze used filled a plain glass block with conversation hearts and added the vinyl design – such a *sweet* way to decorate for Valentine’s Day – or a great gift!

6. Cute and Easy Valentine’s Day Buntings (with free cut file) from TitCrafty by Camila.  Using the free cut file and some pretty valentine’s paper, you too can make this beautiful bunting in no time at all!  I just love the delicate design.

7. Valentine’s Sign by Camille West.  Camille upcycled an old cabinet door by adding vinyl lettering to create a lovely sign for her mantle! (Camille doesn’t have a blog, but you can click HERE to re-pin it from her!)

8.  Simple Chocolate Heart Valentine from One Dog Woof.  ChiWei created school Valentines using her Silhouette by sketching and cutting. I love how pretty and simple they are.  And who doesn’t love chocolate with their valentines?

9.  “Love’s a Hoot!” Free Printable Gift Tag from Put a Bird On It.  Daniela found these insanely cute gift boxes at Target and created gift tags to go with it! While she used her Silhouette to design and cut the gift tags, she included a free printable PDF so you don’t have to have a Silhouette to use it!

10. Lollipop Princess Wands for Valentine’s Day by From Wine to Whine.  If you’ve got a little girl, you must head over to see Deanna’s fun lollipop princess wands.  She’s included instructions for how to make them with OR without a Silhouette.

11.  Valentine’s Day Card from Designed Decor.  I just love the idea of puzzle pieces in a Valentine!  DeDe found some random old puzzle pieces and painted them red to put inside her card (made with her Silhouette, of course)…and what a lovely card it is!

12. Valentine’s Day Magnets (with free cut file) from Black and White Obsession.  In addition to sharing the cut files with you, Trisha shares a great tutorial on making these magnets…as well as her thoughts on where to get the best kind of cardboard for cutting with your Silhouette!

13.  Glittery Valentine’s Day Candles from A Tossed Salad Life.  I love using double-sided adhesive and glitter to glam things up!  Emily used it to add some Valentine’s glitz to plain candles – presto Valentine’s decor!

15. Valentine Shirt from McCall Manor.  I have to admit, I am a little bit obsessed with these heart-shaped elbow patches! So. Darn. Cute.  And it was even Holly’s first time cutting fabric with her Silhouette!

16.  Valentine Banner from Create & Babble.  I am a sucker for a book page banner any time of year, but these delicate paper hearts that Jeanie added make it even more beautiful!

17. Valentine Mantle Wooden Burlap Blocks by Jenny Frye.  Jenny used her Cameo to cut a stencil and paint on burlap, then attached the burlap to some new wood she aged to look older.  I just love how the painted burlap looks displayed on the wood blocks! (Jenny doesn’t have a blog, but you can re-pin this project from here HERE!)

18. LOVE Pennant Banner from Peace, Love, and Joyce.  Joyce made these fun rosettes using her Silhouette to add to her “love” banner – and I really like the color combination of the whole thing, beyond just pinks and reds!

19. Valentine Mustache Heart Shirt by Karen Bradley.  I know that mustaches are all the rage right now, but I never would have thought to put it on a heart…and the result is just too fun!  I think this is a Valentine’s shirt that you could actually get a boy to wear!  (Karen doesn’t have a blog, but you can re-pin this project from her HERE!)

20.  3D Cardboard Ampersand from Grey Luster Girl.  If you’re looking for some great V-Day decor beyond the typical hearts and flourishes, this ampersand art is for you!  Lisa used her Silhouette to cut two ampersands out of a cereal box, put styrofoam between, and wrapped with fabric to make 3D mantel art.  The best part is – you can use it after Valentine’s Day has come and gone!

21. Valentine Gift Tags from GetSilvered. Gift tags aren’t just for Christmas!  Pam made these beautiful tags with layered card stock, and has included a free cut file as well as a PDF for you to make your own!

22. Hogs and Kisses in a Can with Show Your Love Tickets from Create it. Go!  I love a clever pun (thanks to my dad for instilling that virtue in me from a young age), and let’s face it – Valentine cards are FULL of groan-worthy puns.  This one, though, made me smile!  Not to mention the giggle-inducing tin can hog!  Robyn used her Silhouette to make “show your love” tickets to go along with her “hogs and kisses.”  Too cute!

23.  ”We’re Better Together” Valentine’s Card from Tried & True.  Nobody said you had to make a huge, frilly, elaborate card for Valentine’s Day.  Vanessa made this simple card with her Silhouette out of flocked scrapbook paper and a blank kraft paper card.  Lovely!

24.  Valentine Love – Fry Carton Valentine from Little Blue’s Room.  Not only can you make cards with your Silhouette, you can make 3D containers for candy!  Angela shares this fry carton valentine she made and decorated.

25.  Kitchen Love Subway Art from  Chicken Scratch NY.  This is another great idea for decor that can be used year-round, not just at Valentine’s Day!  ”We go together like…” fill in the blank with any of the clever pairs Alecia put on her Kitchen Love Subway Art!  (And she included a free cut file to make your own – thanks Alecia!)

And a bonus project ;-)  DIY Paper Rosette Wreath by me!  I used my Silhouette to cut out over a hundred paper rosettes (yes, it took a while, but was totally worth it!), then attached them to a foam wreath and sprayed with glitter spray.  Be sure to stop by for the free cut file!
