Dollar Tree Plates

I love my Silhouette. I've had it for over 2 years now, so I think I jumped on the Silhouette band wagon before everyone else. Cuz I'm cool like that. :) But it is completely awesome and I use it for probably 75% of all my projects. And the cool thing about Silhouette is that even though mine is 2 years old, I can still get the latest program, since it is available to download. The only function I don't have that the new ones do is the ability to save things onto an SD card, which isn't a big deal for me. But I love it. Seriously love it. Can you tell? :)

Anyway, here is one reason why I love it. I can take plates from the Dollar Tree, add some vinyl shapes cut from my Silhouette and make them look like this...

Way cute, way easy, and way cheap.

And don't birds just make you feel all Spring-like?


  1. Very simple project but very cute! I have a silhouette now but I have only used it a couple of times (gasp!) because most of my crafts involve sewing. But someday I will have more time to use it! I should buy that fabric interfacing stuff.

  2. Very cute! Looks like you spent a lot of money on them at some fancy boutique, so I love that the plates are from the dollar store. I saw them in the background of a picture on your other blog and wondered where you had gotten them. I should've guessed you had made them! Genius.


I love hearing from you!
