One of the dangers that comes along with using the Silhouette cutting machine is the desire to give everything your own personal touch.
Since learning how to cut vinyl with my Silhouette I have seen everything I own with new, fresh eyes. There’s possibility in everything!
The other day as I was reading a book on my Kindle I noticed how plain my cover was. It is a solid pink cover. I love it and it works great as a cover to protect my precious Kindle Fire, but I suddenly wanted to make it “mine”.
This was so easy with the Silhouette!!!
On the front I put a quote from Lori Whitlock, “So Many Books, So Little Time”. I love this…I could pretty much read all day every day, if only there was time for that. But, alas, I have many more responsibilities that I must attend to.
I wanted to put a fun monogram on the back and I found the cutest flower alpha to cut for that!
This was a quick and easy project and would be a great first project is you want to try out using vinyl with your Silhouette!

If you have a silhouette have you been bitten by the “I want to decorate and personalize every single thing I have” bug like I have?
