A few weeks ago I came home with a new Silhouette. I wish it had something to do with my appearance but sadly..no. Let’s not go there. I’m talking about a QuicKutz Silhouette. It’s a digital craft cutter. Very cool product. It was something I was never going to buy. Never say never people. It always comes back to haunt you. Anyhow…I’m now the proud owner of this cool machine and have been having fun testing it out. I had a couple projects to share with you today and if you want to read the entire saga/review…I have a Craft Critique Review today on it.
For this first design, I was cutting out this gorgeous damask shape on patterned paper. The cutting is gorgeous but I discovered I liked the reverse image even better than the pieces I cut out. I layered on top of a card base to allow the color to show through.
Quick Tip: Using the negative shapes left behind opens up a huge number of possibilites. Windows, layers, and masks all come to mind. Cool!

Octagonal Thank You Box
OK…. I’ve just turned into a box-cutting fiend. Is this Octagonal box not the coolest? The machine even lightly punches the score lines making it super easy to fold. It’s such a fabulous idea for party favors or little gifts.
