Star Wars Han Solo and Princess Leia love!

 Happy 12th Anniversary to me and my hubby!
In honor of our special day...
 Pin It
Is there anything more geeky and romantic?
I think not.
 I used my silhouette to cut out contact
 shelf lining paper...it's cheap, but so hard to see!
But it's so cheap!  I buy this at the dollar store.

My silhouette settings are:
Blade set to 5, cut depth on the software set to 1.
Cut speed at 3...better to go slow.
Carefully applied to wood with transfer
 tape for the perfect stencil!
I did dry/bare wood and black paint...
 
 and I wasn't too thrilled about the major bleeding problem...
 
  So I used the contact paper to recover Han and Leia...
 and then painted all the rest of the wood white!
Much better, crisper lines!  The perfect silhouettes!
Then I re-did the captions in contact paper 
and painted those on...
In a true Star Wars Geek Love fashion...
 And since I know YOU want one too...here's the png I used.
Princess Leia and Han Solo silhouettes

I finished mine off with light sanding the edges and a wax finish.
Presto!

Oh my goodness, this made me laugh out loud! We have always loved the movie & this line in particular. Thanks for sharing it with my readers.

Warmly, Michelle

I am looking for the image you used so I can make a wedding gift for my niece. Can you send it to me or tell me where to find it? Thanks!

Love this project! I'm using your silhouettes right now in a project for my wedding, does the credit for making them belong to you? Thanks so much!
