Here in Texas, the summer heat is still blazing but most of the schools are back in session – and that means our Creative Cutters group meetings have resumed!

It was SO good to see everyone again! We had a nice group of ladies ranging in age from 11 to 78 and representing three states – Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. I love having new people join us!

Our topic for the evening was Acrylics 101 and the projects included acrylic keychains and acrylic cuff bracelets.

Each person was able to choose from an assortment of tassel colors, designs, and Sparkleberry Ink patterns to create their own unique keychain. (Many of the patterns we used have been part of the monthly Sparkleberry box subscription.)

All other supplies were from Craft Chameleon, a small mom & pop shop that specializes in craft products, blanks, tools, and supplies used by both Silhouette crafters and embroiderers.

2.5″ Round Disks

Medium Triangle Bail

Split Keyring & Chain

Oval Jump Rings

1.5″ Tassels

Tip: These bent-nose pliers are very inexpensive and great for working with the bails and jump rings!

We also used blanks from Craft Chameleon to make cuff bracelets. Everyone was pretty amazed to see how you could apply heat transfer vinyl to a piece of acrylic, heat the acrylic, and then form it into a bracelet.

The blanks come in two sizes and a variety of colors, which gave everyone plenty of opportunity to exercise their creativity. The borders for the designs came from Craft Chameleon and the Silhouette Design Store and were cut from various types of HTV, including solids, glitter, Stahls’ Fashion FILM, and various Sparkleberry patterns.

And the evening wouldn’t be complete without door prizes! Ms. Norma was visiting us from Oklahoma and she won a Mint 🙂 . A big thanks to Silhouette America for being such a great sponsor!
