What about using contact paper and putting it on the round record shape.  You could probably get cleaner cuts that way.

yeah i am thinking something like that might work better.  Back to hobby lobby it is! ha ha

If we do it on a record shape I just have to figure out how to actually stand up the record.  I guess I could make a little stand kind of like a picture frame tyhpe.  it won't look awesome from both sides but oh well.

You could make it stand up lots of ways.  What kind of base are you using?

WE were using the same paper in the shape of a record.  It stands up fine it's just hard to get the cuts clean enough.  I think maybe we just need to keep changing the blades...

What color do you want them to be? If black, I'd look for black museum board, as it should be black all the way through. 1/8" board should be able to stand up with a proper base. Use an x-acto knife with a BRAND NEW blade and change blades often. A metal straight-edge will help with the long straight cuts. If you want someone else to make them I'd look for a printer that can do laser cutting.

Good luck!

yeah black would be good.  I guess on thing we could do is use construction paper and then glue them on to a different backround.  Or use the template as a stencil and paint it on to something..It just looks so cool as as stand up silhouette.

For my wedding that is in less then two weeks I was trying to make my own centerpieces. I made a silhouette of my fiance and I and tried to use posterboard to cut them out.  I am having a problem cutting them out because the center of the paper is white so and if the cuts aren't exact the top layer of paper is ripping and the white is showing through.  I am not sure if I should be using a different kind of paper, or if i am using the wrong kind of cutting tool. The paper needs to be thick enough to stand up, it should be about 12 inches tall.  i have even started trying to look for like a printing place that would be able to do it but I am not having any luck because i am not sure what I should be looking for.

It seems that some of these scrapbook machines might be able to do what I want but I am not going to buy a machine just to make 16 center pieces. 

This the image:




any help would be amazing

Thanks gals! I think I might do a test with some heavy fabric and see how it goes, and then if I don't like that I will use the polyester.

i got a pattern that calls for a layer of polyester fleece for just the top part. Can I use any thick material or maybe that really stiff fusiable interfacing to cushion or pad the handle part?
The pattern I am using is



it's kind of hard to see the purse part but hopefully you can...


and it just calls for the fleece in the flat closure part if that makes sense. 

what do you all think?
