Silhouette Cameo Custom Panel!

I had no idea this was even an option until last week! Boring control panel In your Silhouette Library you will find "control panel" open it up...don't adjust the size, it's good to go! I cut 2... Pick some cute paper... Pull out your control panel cover... These fit pretty good...some slight offs, not worth tweaking,  BUT there are no holes for the lights.

Change it up whenever you want! Love it! Linking up to THESE parties this week!

Art Kits for fabulous works of HEART!

You'll see mine is not exactly measur

Take the back off the frame...remove glass/plastic Cut some cork to fit inside the should be smaller than the frame backing. You may need to hot glue it right on the backing and  then trim up the cork with your knife a bit. Once it fits (doesn't have to be pretty) Stack another piece of cork on top of that... Hot glue it right on top.  Not tons of hot glue...just enough to keep it in place. Use a small ball of poly fil and sandwich it between fabric and the cork backing. Hot glue the fabric up on the sides, all wrapped up like a present! It's cute, and doesn't puff up too much... I just hot glued it right inside the frame.  Let it cool, the
