When I first dug into my box, I was honestly slightly overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start!  But, it wasn’t long before I picked an idea and ran with it.  Here’s the first of my projects using some of my new Silhouette “toys”.

Friend Coffee Gift Jar

Here’s how I did it.  You’ll need:
– an empty and clean glass bottle with lid
Printable Silver Foil
Adhesive cardstock
– ribbon
– scissors
– flower {optional}
– printer, Silhouette cutting machine, Silhouette software

Step 1: Create “friend” definition and open it in your Silhouette Designer Edition Software.
I made mine in PicMonkey.  You can create your own, making it personalized, or you can feel free to use mine!  Just right click the image and “save as” to your computer.

Step 2: Position the image where you want it in your software, load your printable silver foil into a printer and print the definition onto it.

Step 3: Without moving the text, add a label shape and size it to fit your text.  Cut with your Silhouette.  Be sure to choose “printable foil” in your cutting settings and change your blade to the recommended setting, 5.


Step 4: Peel the label from its backing and adhere to your bottle.  Come on, how fun is that?!

Step 5: Measure your lid.  In your software, draw and cut a circle from adhesive backed cardstock that will comfortably cover it.  I used the warm grey, which looks like brown to me, because it went with “coffee colors.”  Peel and stick!

How easy is that?!  Bye-bye, logo of company I’ve given all kinds of love to but who doesn’t want to work with me on anything, ever.  Ahem.  I digress.

Step 6: Tie on a cute coordinating ribbon.  Add a flower or button accent if you like!

Step 7: Give to a friend!  Oh, I guess I forgot the “fill with coffee” part.  Do that too. 🙂  Otherwise, your friend will be like, “Oh look!  What a nice, um, bottle…”  while thinking, “Where the heck is my coffee?”

This project was absolutely simple to make!  All I had to do was cut, peel, and stick, and I had a really cute and thoughtful {I think, anyway!} gift idea!  Which I’m giving to a friend who is letting me borrow her extra car {!!!} while we wait {and wait and wait} for ours to get fixed from our little rear-ending incident.  Thanks, Laura!  Hope you like your present!

As for the rest of you, if you want something to get excited about, hop on over to Silhouette and fill up your cart with this Specialty Media!  I’ve got more projects coming your way that are going to show you how much you *need*  this stuff!  For real!  When you open that box, it’ll be like your birthday only better because you don’t have to be another year older, you just get to play with new fun toys!   Oh, and don’t forget, use ARTSY to get your discount {I do make a small commission on sales with that code, so you’re helping fund LC’s education}!

Hugs & Glitter,
