Dress up mylar balloons with vinyl designs (Silhouette CAMEO) - Choose To Thrive

Graduation. End of the year.

It’s almost here.

Time for teacher appreciation gifts, commencement bouquets and graduation parties.

** Cue dollar store décor--that blessedly cheap haven of all things seasonal.**

Well, seasonal and completely generic.

Or not ….

I figured if I only had a few bucks to throw towards celebrating I might as well jazz it up using vinyl scraps and my Silhouette CAMEO.

Didn’t know you could dress up balloons?

Yup. You totally can.

And if you’re going to bust out the Silhouette, how cool would it look to have those balloons decked out in your grad’s mascot? Or name? Or both?

Graduation could look like this:

Or this:

And celebrating that college acceptance letter could look like this:

Lots and lots of possibilities. Lots.

Add vinyl to mylar balloons.7

Two words, people: mass rad.

You can import the school mascot/logo into your Silhouette library and trace the design or use a shape from the Silhouette store. Wording is simple using the free download font Collegiate Bold.

Application is straight forward, but here’s a quick video on how not to pop the dang things.

And while you’ve got the CAMEO out, why not use up a few more scraps to customize some snazzy dollar store gifts to match?

Cute, customized and crazy cheap.

Me likey.

Congrats class of 2013!

  1. What a fun idea! Sadly, mine graduated last Sunday but I have a few more to graduate in years to come so I will have to remember this great idea!

  2. These are great! I'm thinking I am really missing out on not having any kind of vinyl cutter in my life. I am worried the learning curve is too steep....but these look fabulous!

  3. Yep, yet another reason I need a Silhouette (or CriCut, either will do...I'm not too picky). :o) You look great in your video, btw!
