Silhouette Giveaway & Promotion

Have I shared with you just how much I enjoy using my Silhouette?  Well, if we haven’t established this yet…I do.  I use it all of the time.  Most recently, I used my Silhouette machine to create this Subway Art Dresser for my son’s room.

We moved my two boys out of an overcrowded shared room and move them into their own spaces.  I shared my oldest son’s room reveal here if you are interested.  And today I want to share with you one project of my other son’s room.  His room is about 90% completed and I will for sure share with you the final reveal when I can’t get it done.

But before we do that…let’s be sure and get the details for the Silhouette Giveaway and Promotion out of the way for those of you who are here for that.

Valentine’s Day Crafts gift and milk bottles—Silhouette promotion

 I was recently sent some Double-Sided Adhesive paper from Silhouette and challenged to come up with a creative way to use it and make some Valentine’s Day Crafts.  I have never used this before and I have to tell you, I was really quite surprised with how much I enjoyed it.


Before we get into my project and how I made it, let’s get the Silhouette February Promotion details out of the way.

This month Silhouette is offering a pretty good deal to The Idea Room readers…

Alright, now onto how I made these glittery milk and gift bottles.


  1. I found some fun heart shapes in the Online Silhouette Store and downloaded them.
  2. Sized them in the Silhouette Software to 1.5 inches in width.
  3. Cut them out according to the directions on the Double-Sided adhesive box.
  4. My settings were:  Speed: 3; Thickness: 33; Blade setting: 6 using my mat and a double cut.
  5. Peel off the back yellow layer of paper on an individual heart.

  1. Placed onto clean “milk” bottles (which are repurposed Starbucks Frappucino Bottles)
  2. Peeled off the white top layer and made sure all the adhesive was pulled out of the negative space area where I did not want any glitter.
  3. Dust glitter over the sticky adhesive and then using a clean brush, brushed away the excess glitter.


Then fill the bottles with your favorite drink.  These bottles can be used at a Valentine’s day party in the classroom, or with your friends and family.


For Valentine’s Day we usually have a nice candle-light family dinner.  I think I will be including these as part of the table settings this year!


Or you could gift the jars to a special friend as a nice little Valentine’s Day gift along with some VERY RICH chocolate sweets!  Your friends will thank you!


For the fun Heart Shaped Cookies in the photos, I simply took a favorite Chocolate Drop Cookie Recipe and cut the cookies with a heart shaped cookie cutter.  Then made a cookie sandwich by spreading some delicious Cream Cheese Frosting in between the two layers.


Cause seriously…if you are going to eat a treat…it might as well be a good one…right?  All things in moderation of course.  So limit yourself to 2…or 3 depending on the type of day your having…haha!


And just because I am obsessed with making labels lately…I made some fun “Bottled with love” labels.


You can download them here….

Bottle With Love Labels

You have to be a FB fan to gain access to the file.  Click on “Get your free gift” at the top of the FB page and then click on “Previous Downloads”.


You can attach the labels as a fun gift tag, or attach it directly to the bottle itself.


Pretty fun little gift if I do say so myself.  The best part? You can use this idea for so many different things…a birthday party, gifts, showers, bridal showers…etc.

Oh…where do you get the fun Hershey Kiss Valentine’s Day labels you ask?  You can find them by heading here…
