Today is a double post day! I still have my 12 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments series going on, but I also wanted to participate in the post with The Silhouette Challenge Group that I belong to. Both posts are Silhouette related, so be sure to check out my other one too. I also have ANOTHER GIVEAWAY for you today! Continue to the bottom of this post to see what it is. You don’t want to miss this one!
Anyway, in the midst of all of this ornament madness, I’m also needing to come up with Christmas gift ideas for people. Evan’s teachers really liked the definition art tea towels that I made for them last year, so I decided to design another one.
This one is for someone with a nice sense of humor. It didn’t turn out as good as the one I did before. I think I was putting the paint on too thick, but it’s still cute. I’ve heard good things about freezer paper and stencil vinyl, so I might have to try those out next time to see if I get less paint leakage. Go here for the free cut file and check out my other tea towel for a full tutorial.
Wrap them up with some cookies and/or one of the cookie cutter ornaments that I made last week, and you’ve got a cute little gift!
And now get ready for some AMAZING Silhouette inspiration! The girls in The Silhouette Challenge Group have been hard at work to bring you 35 Silhouette creations! Go check out their projects and make sure to keep reading because you are almost to the GIVEAWAY!
