Hello! It’s the 2nd Monday of the month which means it’s time for another Silhouette Challenge! :) A group of some of my favorite bloggers get together each month to share our latest Silhouette creations. This month’s theme is “My Favorite Things”. So that means just about anything goes! One of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette is to make stencils. So today I am going to show you how I made these Super Hero Backpacks with my kiddos’ initials on them using a stencil I cut with my Silhouette. I’ll also have links to 30 other fabulous Silhouette projects. So keep reading! ;)
For this project you’ll need a few supplies:
First you will cut the monogram out using your Silhouette & the chipboard. Then slide a piece of cardboard inside your backpack. This will make it so the paint will not bleed through. Plus it makes it a nice solid surface to trace your stencil on.
Then you will lightly trace the image onto your bag with a pencil.
Then using your paint brush & fabric paint you will start painting away! :)
I did the lighter color first & then the darker color last.
Now all you have to do is wait on it to dry! ;)
These backpacks are great for carrying the kids towels to the pool or books to the library. They’d also make great travel bags to hold activities & games for those long summer road trips. :)
