For Christmas, my sister and I bought my mom a Silhouette Cameo, and since I was visiting for vacation, she got some lessons while I was there! One of the first things we made was a welcome sign for her to put out by her front door.



She had everything on hand, except for the starfish!

First, we painted a piece of plywood using the paint that matches the color of her front door. Then, we cut out vinyl letters using the Silhouette. And, the starfish got a coat of white paint to match the letters.




Next, we positioned the letters and starfish on the board...




And then applied the vinyl letters.




Using some E-6000, the starfish was glued on to make the letter "O" (and after a bit of discussion, the shells were added at the top {discarded ideas: ribbon, sand dollars}).

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

What a great gift for mom, especially with lessons! The sign is quite charming.

What a great present, and also a great idea to throw the "lessons" into the mix! Love the welcome sign! Nothing beats shells/sea stars etc.

Thanks! Its been fun playing around with it and finding things to attack with vinyl. We put a message on the bathroom mirror for my stepdad, but were waiting for him to notice it. We had some trouble cutting, initially, but I think the problem is solved Smiley
