Lunchbox upgrade with Silhouette

20 01 2011

My daughter has been wanting one of the neoprene lunch boxes, but she didn’t really “need” it, she just wanted it.  So I didn’t get her one, even when they were on clearance at Target for 2 for $10 (that’s not a huge clearance if you ask me!)  What I did find was a solid colored one in the clearance section of Wal-Mart for $2.  I can do $2.  But, it was solid colored and who knows how many other people will have the exact same lunch box… enter Silhouette (I love that machine!) I decided to use some of the iron-on vinyl I got from Expressions Vinyl.  They even have a video tutorial, which I didn’t watch until I had already cut the vinyl of the wrong side, but we learn…  (you need to flip your image in reverse too.) I cut out 5 dandelions, but managed to iron two of them to my iron and no, it wasn’t my best night and no it’s REALLY not that difficult to use this stuff, I was just NOT with it that night.  I digress… the lunchbox is much cuter than it was before and no one should have a lunchbox like hers.
