Silhouette Project: Car Decals

I wanted to do a project using this awesome Premium Vinyl for those of you who don’t have a cutting machine (kind of like the pillow HERE)….and today was a school day so I could get my kids to participate, and finish the quick project, all before the sun goes down so I can actually take a daylight picture – wahoo!

There is a great promotion going on, this week only, for Silhouette.  (Ends Saturday, Jan 22nd)

A couple of great deals:

–You can get a machine, 2 rolls of Premium Vinyl, 1 roll of Transfer, and a Home Decor CD – a $395 value, for just $225 – that’s a deal!! using the code “SUGARBEE”

–All Premium Vinyl is 25% off using the code “SUGARBEE”

Now remember, I bought my own silhouette, but they did send me this vinyl at no cost so I could try it out and let you know how I like it.  

Enough jabber – on to the project – – 
I jumped on the people-car-decal-fad wayyy early, maybe 5 years ago.  I love them still, but now that everyone has them, I kind of wanted something different.  So I scraped these off my van (it was a TOUGH job!!  I think they were on for life!)

Then I traced my kids hands onto the Premium made-for-outdoors vinyl and cut them out using plain ole scissors, prepped the spot, and stuck them on the van.  Since handprints aren’t an intricate design, I didn’t need transfer paper – just peel and stick the vinyl.

Normally the van’s not so dirty, but we’ve had lots of snowy/slushy roads lately…..and I’m sure if you’ve been reading this blog awhile you’re not at all surprised that I only cleaned the spot I needed….

I love how it’s something different – although I kind of wish my kids had daintier hands – oh well.

So, I used about 1 foot of vinyl – it comes on a 10-foot roll for $15, and an extra 25% off that using the code “SUGARBEE” – and if you get 9 of your closest friends to go in with you, then each of you can make personalized car decals for a whooping $1.13 each (plus shipping) – what a deal.  Unless you have a huge family and need 2 feet of roll, then you’ll be a big spender at $2.26.  Anyways, just an idea – I always try to recruit friends to go in on supplies for projects with me – it’s a win-win.  Click the button below to head over and start shopping: (someone get dark pink – or the green – that’d be great!)
