.:Silhouette Product Review & Giveaway - CLOSED:.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Have you all seen the Silhouette?


It's an electronic cutter that hooks up to your computer. I'm sure you've seen them showing up in projects all over blogland.

Silhouette is not just about the electronic cutting. In fact, Silhouette has tons of other amazing accessories, products, and tools to help you get your craft on!

I, among a lot of other amazingly crafty ladies, got the opportunity to test out some of these fun products.

And guess what?

I don't even have a Silhouette.

How cool is that, that you can still use their products even if you don't have access to their cutter? I think it's pretty cool.

Here's what I got to try out:

Yellow and White Heat Transfer Paper







I have to say, I absolutely LOVED using these products! The directions were simple and easy to follow. It didn't matter in the least that I don't own a Silhouette - all you need is a pair of scissors and your imagination!

I'm going to be posting tutorials throughout the week, but here's a sneak peek at some of the things I made using these Silhouette products.


Tattoo paper


Magnet Paper


Heat Transfer Paper


Did you think I was just sharing this with you to rub it in your face that I got to use these awesome products?

I'm not that rude, I promise!

- one roll of smooth white heat transfer paper
