Silhouette Cameo Box 1


This week I’ve sorted through the board games I’ve collected. Now, when I’m ready to start upcycling them I’ll be able to easily find what I’m looking for. Hoorah!

Silhouette Cameo Box 2


One of the games has a set of word magnets that I bought  to use as embellishments. I didn’t want to leave them in the original box, however, because it takes up too much space so I decided to make a storage box for them.




I looked for a template that I could use with my Silhouette Cameo  but I couldn’t find one that was the right size or that looked easy to adapt, so I made one myself.

I didn’t get the cutting settings quite right, or the blade is too blunt, the mat is too old, the card is not right or . . . so I had to finish the cutting with a craft knife. That’s why it’s a bit feathery.

The end result is not quite a neat as I would have liked but I’m pleased with myself for working out how to do this and for getting it done.
