Creepy Bride and Groom Silhouettes: Easy Vinyl Project

I get teased by my family for picking things up without a plan in mind...I can't imagine any crafter who doesn't experience this!  Maybe not the teasing but the picking up items without a plan. Or, the teasing. 

During the Summer I picked up a pack of metallic painted canvases at Michaels for 70% off. Two gold and two silver 8x8 originally 9.99 that I got for 2.99!  When I saw these creepy silhouettes in the ( no pun intended) Silhouette Online Store I knew what I wanted to do with my steal deal  canvases. 

This is such an easy project I didn't take pictures of the process because it's as easy as : 

  • Download images ($.99 each)
  • Size, cut with your Silhouette ( I have a Cameo) 
  • Apply to already painted canvas
  • Embellish
To embellish them I used metallic self adhesive rhinestones and washi tape. Easy Peasy

Altered Box Crafting At The Mumster's

Altered Cigar Boxes May 1

I can always count on a visit to The Mumster involving some crafting which is A-OK by me. I check with her before coming to see what she has in mind before I go. She’s enjoyed my altered cigar boxes and wanted to have a couple to give as gifts to some special friends. She planned ahead and scored the boxes at Total Wine.


Since she knew the themes, I cut out a bunch of vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo before leaving home.

Rolling Stones Box

For these boxes you will need:
  • Cigar Boxes to cover
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Mod Podge ( My go to is Matte)
  • Craft Paint
  • Embellishments
Measure your papers to fit your box. You can either cover the whole box with one paper or mix and match. The Mumster recently went to Vegas to see The Rolling Stones and wanted one of the boxes as a gift for the friend who invited her. For this box I used neutral papers , red vinyl accents and the focal was a red rhinestone lip sticker I picked up at Michaels in their 2 for $3 section.

The other box is for friends of hers who threw her a surprise Birthday dinner and who love to take pictures so this one was photo themed.

Photo Altered Box

I found this great camera themed paper and brought with me camera themed washi tape ( Recollections, Michaels) , vinyl photo phrases, and of course, rhinestones!

Rolling Stones Box 1

For the Rolling Stones box I used black and cream harlequin paper, and music notes paper.

So now Mom has 2 Christmas presents out of the way; I got my craft fix; and we’re back to the Wine store for more boxes!
