The Silhouette/Cameo has been an absolutely great way to make boxes and containers for little gifts and treats. Here is one I made for some seam rippers that were token gifts to the Renegade art quilt group at our Christmas party. Basically it was a little box that opened at the top and bottom. I cut the halo, face, hair, arms/hands and wings on the Silhouette. The wings were embossed with an embossing folder. The hair was colored with a light brown marker. Eyes are black marker dots and cheeks are pink chalk. The halo was painted with gold paint and the edges antiqued with brown ink. It was a lot of fun to put together and it brought back memories of my folk art painting days. It is true that I drew the parts but you could easily find files online that you could use to cut parts to decorate a simple box. Make a small gift extra special for someone.
