Paper cut christmas decorations

Here are some of the christmas decorations I cut on my silhouette cameo.

UPDATE! I now have a tutorial for making the paper cut Christmas wreath here https://phloem.co.uk/2015/12/13/tutorial-video-paper-cut-wreath-using-the-silhouette-cameo/

I made the banner using 2 different colours of blue, they were then sewn onto some blue ribbon using my sewing machine.
I think they look stunning and will keep them up for as long as possible

Here is a close up detail of the paper cut wreath

I think I’ll cut out the red berries soon and add some white paper cut flowers so I can keep it up for as long as possible :)
Hope you all had a wonderful christmas and are looking forward to the new year :)

Gel pen heaven

Just a small selection of my glitter and metallic gel pens (am writing xmas cards), I seem to have an ever increasing variety of them but mostly uni-ball, pentel and crayola :)
I cant wait to get a pen holder for my cameo, so instead of cutting it will automatically write and draw in a variety of lush and shiny inks.

Paper cut christmas wreath

paper cut christmas wreath

I’ve just finished making this christmas wreath, I cut everything on my silhouette cameo, firstly cutting some leaflets in 2 different shades of green.
I then curled them a bit with a stylus then created a 2 inch wide ring and sized it to fit on 12×12 inch cardstock of which I cut 3, then stacked and glued them. This created a sturdy ring.
I attached the leaflets following the curve of the ring, then cut some berries and glued them between the leaves.
I made a little hanging holder out of cardstock and glued it to the back.
Et voila! a wreath!
