Quiet Book

I made this Quiet Book for my niece for Christmas. I used my Silhouette to cut some of it out, but did a lot of it by hand. I got to practice putting grommets on and applying snaps. I made it so I can add pages as she gets older, by using 3 inch binder rings to hold it together.

Bridal Bouquet Ornament

My best friend got married in May, and left her bridal bouquet at my house to dry. It was hanging awkwardly in my guest bedroom inside a brown bag. I saw a post on a Silhouette page that I follow that had the petals in an ornament. Perfect! I got out her bouquet and picked out some of the better (not moldy) flowers! I found a plastic ornament at Hobby Lobby and filled it with the petals. Then I cut out Mr. & Mrs. out of gold vinyl and 2014. I tied a little bow on it and boxed it up! I like that it is small and she can remember her wedding every year at Christmas time!
