Does it seem like most of the projects out there for Silhouette and Cricut users involve vinyl?
Just me? No? Okay, good.
Because even though you can do so much with vinyl and it’s a lot of fun to work with there’s so much more these machines can do. And I haven’t been talking about most of them. Like, at all.
But that’s about to change. Because today we’re talking about 10 projects you can make with your machine that have nothing to do with vinyl!
I remember when I first opened the box of my Silhouette Machine, I was so unsure of how to use it that I didn’t touch it for months. Terrible, I know. But I just wasn’t sure where to start. So I let it sit and collect dust while I debated which project to do first.
While that unsure and unconfident period seems like forever ago, in reality it’s only been four years. And while I still have a long way to go when it comes to figuring out all the cool things my machine can do, I’m getting there and taking y’all along for the ride!
Let’s check out these beginner Silhouette crafts that aren’t vinyl you need to try!
I definitely need to branch out a little more and try new things (like cutting wood!) this year but I still see lots of vinyl projects in my future! The Silhouette is so fun to use and makes crafting easy.
Are there any materials you’ve been dying to cut with your machine, but haven’t tried yet?
