Silhouette Double Sided Adhesive Projects

silhouette adhesive starter kit

Did you know that Silhouette is having a fun promotion this month starring their Double Sided Adhesive Starter Kit?  To explain it simply, imagine being able to cut double sticky tape in your Portrait/CAMEO.
This little tile was made with blue vinyl and some Double Sided Adhesive.
This is a f.u.n. starter kit!

silhouette designer studioI got busy designing my projects in the Silhouette Designer Studio.  Be sure to select the proper cut settings when you change from one project to another.  You’ll notice the blade cuts rather deep with this media.  You will place the paper white side up/yellow side down onto your cutting mat.  I used my CAMEO for this project, that’s why the mat looks so large.  The vinyl I used was 12 inches wide.

glitter double sided adhesiveHint: work on some scrap newspaper or tissue paper to make cleanup a little easier.  If you’ve ever worked with glitter, you know that it can be a little messy. I sprinkled a little of the blue and just a tad of the white onto the sticky moon and spread it around with the brush.

remove glitter from brushBefore I moved on to my next project, I used a piece of painter’s tape to remove excess glitter from my brush.

These were very fun projects. You can use the double sided adhesive on lots of different surfaces, including glass, candles, cardstock (greeting cards) and more!

  1. Your glitter project is awesome Gail… I’m really thinking about the Silhouette but the learning curve worries me. There are so many blog things I still have to learn, I’m afraid getting a Silhouette and having to figure it out might just put me over the edge! LOL

  2. Adorable! They are always coming up with new ways to entice me into spending my money!

  3. So cool! There are just so many projects you could do with this!

  4. Those are cute, and how nice… no glue mess!

    Bliss

  5. Great projects, Gail!

  6. Cute tiles! I love that you can add texture, so fun!

  7. Cute. Cute. Cute. !!!

    Did youuse glitter on the lips too? I wasn’t sure as you talked about the fuzziness.

  8. Which Silhouette do you recommend? Cute project!

    • Although I love the portability of the Portrait, I would recommend the CAMEO overall because of the ability of 12 inch vinyl/paper. :) It all depends on what you wan to use it for.

  9. Those are adorable Gail. I love the “Kiss me you fool” the best. So on the fence on getting myself a Cameo…but then in 6 months they will have an 18″ one lol.

  10. What a sweet project!!

  11. Great Job! Love the “Love you to the moon and back” What fonts did you use? Also I just got a Cameo, so it’s new to me. I tried cutting with the double sided adhesive using the default settings, but i didnt cut clean? My letters were tearing. Are you using the default settings? Any suggestions on how to solve this?

    • All of the projects were pre-designed images that I purchased from the online store.
      I did use the default settings, however some of my snowflakes didn’t cut clean either. They were too small. I apologize for your trouble getting it to cut right. I would think thicker letters (fonts) would be better. In addition I believe that larger fonts will cut cleaner than tiny words. If I were to change a default setting, I would dial down the speed a little so that it isn’t in such a rush to get the job done.
      When I have had trouble, I’ve called Silhouette, and they’re always very helpful and considerate.
      Good luck to you!
