It can do a lot. A whole lot.
What is a Silhouette? I call it an "industrial Cricut". Clear as mud? Does "a Cricut on steroids" sound any better?
Let me just show you a few of the many projects I've made with my Silhouette.
One of my favorite things to cut is iron-on vinyl--like the stuff you put on t-shirts. I did 35 of these cheerbows for a local high school's football cheerleaders. It's impossible to tell in this photo, but the dark ribbon is purple, white layered on top of that, then a gold metallic vinyl "SHS" on top. They were GORGEOUS if I do say so myself! More importantly, they loved them!
Below is a close-up of the vinyl ironed on to the white grosgrain ribbon.
Here's a fun one! Travel Tableware for Toddlers that are personalized with a name or an initial make great gifts. (By the way, you can find this at Jan's-n-Stitches.)
This rolling cooler has white iron-on vinyl. This was one of those tricky projects, but I thought it looked fabulous when finished!
So, what can a Silhouette do? The sky's really the limit. I love mine--it was a great investment!
