.:Valentine’s Day with Silhouette & Double Sided-Adhesive:.

We’ve got three little girls.

Which means we love all things pink, princess, and glitter. So when I was given the opportunity to try out Silhouette’s new double-sided adhesive, I jumped right on board! They had me at glitter.

The concept behind this product is genius! The double sided adhesive allows you to create perfectly shaped glitter and flocked designs. And it is super simple!

I was able to create this glittery chevron heart to display in our house for Valentine’s Day in about a grand total of 20 minutes.

Wanna see how to do it?

The first thing you do is pick your design in the Silhouette software. I already had this chevron heart, so I sized it to the size of frame I was using.

You take the double sided adhesive paper – which has two paper sides – and put it on your mat, change your settings to double sided adhesive, change your blade to the right depth, and cut it.

Cut the paper to the size you need it. I just used some scrapbook paper on hand.

Take your design off the mat, and peel away the yellow backing.

Place your design on the paper.

Now peel up the white paper – this will leave your design exposed as just an adhesive.

Sprinkle the glitter over your design. Use the paintbrush to spread it all over the adhesive.

Dump the excess glitter on to a separate paper. Then you can admire your beautiful, glittery design.

I took the glass out of the frame I was using, then put my design in and BAM – that’s it!

Look at that glittery goodness. Can you believe how easy that was?

The kit also comes with some flocking powder. So cool! I wanted to make a fun Valentine for my four year old, so I whipped up a design in PicMonkey and then added the arrow out of double sided adhesive to the printed copy. Follow the same process as with the glitter, and you’ll end up with this baby.

Flocked, furry, and soft!

Poke some holes and add some glasses, and BAM – done again!

I’m pretty sure the other moms will be thanking me for a candy-less valentine this year at pre-school.
