There are always so many amazing projects and ideas that I come across online that were made with Silhouette machines. I came across a good deal on the Silhouette Curio, so I jumped at the chance!
I am so darn excited about all of the amazing things I’ll be able to do with this! The Silhouette Curio can etch metal, does stippling, embossing, sketching, you can make your own stencils, and you can even use materials like wood or canvas, plus there’s a whole lot more it can do!
The first couple things I tried were simple because I was just trying to get the basic idea of how to work the machine and use the design software. Plus, all I had on hand anyway was scrapbook paper and sticker paper. My daughter wanted a bookmark, so she picked out the patterns and designs she wanted. She wanted a “B” on the back for her name which I also cut out using the Silhouette. All I need to do now is laminate it for her.
Then, I made stickers. I didn’t read the instructions carefully enough and messed up the first time around, so I ended up cutting the stickers out with scissors on the first sheet of sticker paper. I tried again and did it right. In the picture below, the stickers on the left are the ones cut with scissors and the ones on the right are the ones the machine cut. Big difference!
I made mermaid stickers for my other daughter. I also made a little sticker with my initials to put on my Silhouette machine.
