Party Decoration using the Silhouette Cameo

Hello friends,

Ive been busy this week preparing birthday party invitations and decorations based on the theme Pirates for a preschooler. A special request from the birthday boy was to include anchors, ship steering wheels and maps wherever possible. The main pieces of this project have only been possible thanks to the Silhouette Cameo machine. I know one can patiently cut shapes with a Clicut Retractable knife, but when the task at hand calls for precision and quick turnaround, the Cameo is definitely the better option. 

A quick run down on how I made the banners. The base of each pennant is a piece of white cardstock, edged with washi tape. On it is a piece of torn parchment paper which has been stamped randomly with several shades of Ranger Distress Inks and a map stamp.  The alphabets have been popped up with foam tape and the rest of the shapes stuck with clear glue dots. The font, Pieces of Eight was used in the title of the Disney movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and can be downloaded here. All the alphabets and shapes have been cut out from either Core-dinations card stock or American crafts cardstock. The centre piece as well, has all the layers popped on foam tape to give it some depth and looks identical on both sides so that it can be hung from a tree branch.
