Baby Shower: Silhouette as a sign maker

The silhouette was such a time saver for sign making… I made these 4 in about an hour. I even had the BF make one for the front door!

I used the cut out version and glue dots to stick it on a blank sheet of card stock. Voila, a perfect sign! I saved the sailboat cutouts to glue on other baby Joyce doily banner…

I used these Elmer’s glue dots for everything… they don’t leave the yucky glue bubbles that liquid glue sometimes leaves…
I punched 2 holes in the top and tied household twine to hang… 
I also used the Silhouette and glue dots to make the clothespins…

Did the exact same thing with this sign:

[I got the flip flops from Old Navy on dollar flip flop day!]

I don’t like wasting paper, so I threw a few of these on the bottom of the “thanks for sailing by…” sign. I glued them to popsicle sticks and stuck ‘em in my Good Will craft containers

just dumped out the goodies and filled with shells…
and here are the food name tags :)
I love using doilies and yarn as garland, and I decided to add a little personalization :) The silhouette made that super simple…
HERE is a post about 3 DIY garlands:

what do you think?

p.s. i heard silhouette is coming out with a bigger better machine called the silhouette cameo! It will start shipping in October…just in time for the holiadys :)
