Cute Cuts: A Little Halloween Lantern

This file had to be mine. I saw it in the Silhouette Design Store and loved the detail that the artist put into the design. Not to mention that it only required two pieces of paper. Now if that isn’t enough the price was 99cents…Sold. I added the crystal brad to the top to attach the handle.

It is slightly bigger than the grooved part of my display shelf but it sits on top just fine.  So I added it to the seasonal display in my craft room. I am surprised the boys haven’t touched it but grateful.

I set it next to some Halloween decor I snagged in the dollar section of Target. I don’t like to put up scary stuff just cute things and mostly autumn decor that way I don’t have to go change it for a bit.

I hope you all are inspired to use the cut files/products you have. I am liking this new series on my blog because I know that when I bought these files, I liked them for a reason and I intended on working my way through them all. So thanks for taking the journey with me.

Have a crafty day!


Cute Cuts: Succulents Rock!

Welcome to my new blog series – Cute Cuts! I have amassed a zillion cut files for my Silhouette over the years and so many have not been used. I usually see them in the Silhouette store and order them with all sorts of ideas in mind. Then days and months go by and they are not used. So in order to inspire you all to use your stuff and push me to use mine, I thought I would begin sharing cute cut files from my stash. Today’s file is from the amazing Lori Whitlock who has been creating amazing files for years. I saw it (succulent) and had to have it. I love succulents I have Sedum Autumn Joy all over my yard and inside I have several Jade plants so I am no stranger to these beauties. When I saw this file I felt strongly that I wanted to own a succulent cut file and downloaded it from Silhouette Design Store.  Both the plant and the pot are included in the file.

I increased the size a little but after looking at it, next time I might make the actual plant slightly larger than the file for the pot. I used some leftover paper shreds from my youngest son’s recent birthday party to fill the pot. I found an older fall sticker sheet from Simple Stories to add some design to the pot. The sticker sheet is called Harvest Lane. I am not sure they are still being sold but a quick search online and I bet either Amazon or Joanns’ website will have one.

I placed it on one of my display shelves in my room to add to my autumn decor.  Well, that’s it for me today. I have to get back to work but I will be back soon to share another Cute Cut File!

Happy crafting!
