I have a Silhouette, and I’m not afraid to use it!

That’s right, folks.  This new beauty is a part of the Just a Girl household, and consider this fair warning.  I’m filled to the BRIM with ideas, and I imagine you’ll be seeing a lot of them in the future.

I’ll tell ya right now.  I was so nervous as I turned the machine on that I was seriously sweating.  This whole “be creative—the world is in the palm of your hands” kind of thing was a lot of pressure.  So I decided to start out slow.  Enter: a bag and vinyl.

Shapoodle!  For $1.78 I now have a personalized Detroit Tigers gift bag AND my husband will think I’m cool for making it.  Because I am cool for making it.

For the “special” part of the gift, I decided to use some heat transfer to make my own ribbon.  Here’s my Ikea version of directions…

Add some trim, let the kids add some stickers, and call it good.  Well, then listen to your husband pout and whine because he wants to open it now.  “It’s not fair to make him wait two days.”
