But first I want to show you what I made with my Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette vinyl I got.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you may have noticed my two favorite things are fabric and vinyl. So when I wanted to add a little pop of color to Miss Molly’s room, I knew that mixing the two would turn out really cute.

I made these little vinyl frames and stuck some fabric inside, and they really bring some great color to the room!

Would you like to make your own? All you’ll need is fabric, adhesive vinyl, and some transfer tape.

I used scrap fabric in colors that match her room, and Silhouette brand vinyl.

I downloaded some scalloped frames from the Silhouette store and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo.

I peeled out the “negative space” inside the frame and placed it right on my fabric so I would know how to cut my fabric. You’ll need to cut about 1/4 inch bigger than the inside of your frame.

Then I took my transfer tape and stuck it on my vinyl, then pulled  off the paper backing.

After my vinyl was on my transfer tape, I added the fabric that I had cut to size.

Make sure you put the right side of the fabric onto the sticky side of the vinyl and the transfer tape. And make sure you smooth it flat.

 Then stick it right up on the wall and peel your transfer tape off.

Make sure you peel it at an angle, starting on the corner.

Since the vinyl frames are bigger than your fabric, they’ll hold it up on the wall.

Fabric and vinyl are both such a great way to add little pops of color into your decor, so having them both together is really a win-win for me.

But, if you don’t want to use fabric, you could use this same technique to frame cute scrapbook paper, or photographs.

Cutting vinyl is what I use my Silhouette most for. In fact, I have a whole section for vinyl projects on my sidebar —->

Now is a great time to get a Silhouette of your own. This promotion is for the Silhouette Portrait, which cuts 9 inches, like the vinyl I used today.

Or, if you already have a craft cutter, make sure you pick up some vinyl. The vinyl discounted in the promotion is all 9 inch by 10 foot rolls.  This vinyl used to cost $14.99. They reduced that price to $9.99 as it is. The 25% promotional discount is on the previously discounted $9.99 price and so, comparing it to the old $14.99 price, the discount is HUGE! Seriously, it’s a great price. And the vinyl is good quality!
