custom keep out signs (using the silhouette)

Okay, more Silhouette vinyl inspiration today. I just can't help myself. This stuff is so fun!

My boys have been making homemade "keep out" signs for their bedroom door for a while. They eventually get trashed from all the door slamming that goes on around here, and then my 6-year-old gets mad. So I told them I'd make them one that would really stay put. (No, the hubby wasn't too happy with this, but I told him it was better than all the tape they were using on their own signs!)

I let them choose the wording and pick out the image. They thought the spider was scary enough to make girls think twice before entering. But they wanted to make sure I knew that even though I am a girl, I'm allowed in their room, so we added that little bit (I love that they're little enough to still like me!). They actually ended up with a list of a few more girls who could come in, but I told them they'd just have to get a bouncer to hold that list--it's not going on the door.


You only have a few more days to enter our Silhouette giveaway! Your house, too, could be covered in vinyl very soon!

LOVE THIS! My son's are always making signs too. I'd love to make a football one for my oldest. His room is all about the Packers.

Oh my goodness. That spider is ick! But the whole sign is really cute. No wait. Boy signs aren't "cute." It's AWESOME!

I just found your blog looking for sewing patterns (I just got a new machine!!) and I love your projects. I want to try to make my own home decor from now on :). I'm also a middle school teacher and this silhouette machine looks so awesome. I could so use it decorate the classroom!! I can't wait to see the rest of your projects!!!

I have a Cri cut is that like the silhouette machine?

Rose, the cricut is similar to the silhouette, except the silhouette is all digital software on your computer and can print directly. So there are no cartridges or anything.
