Vinyl Pantry Labels with the Silhouette

My Silhouette showed up on my front door the day before we left to go out of town for Thanksgiving.  Now that we are back I cannot wait to start working on some of the projects that I have been dreaming about.

I did sneak in a few things before I left town.  I used some of the shapes that come free with the Silhouette and a font I already had on my computer to print out some labels:

They couldn't have been easier to make.  I chose one of the shapes that came with my Silhouette:

And with a simple double click it appears on the work area:

With another double click I can resize and move the image:

I make it a little smaller and move it to the top left so that it doesn't waste vinyl when it is time to cut:

Next I select the Text too (hard to see on this image, but it is the A that is grey):

And then click on the work area and start typing:

You can manipulate the size and shape just like you would in Photoshop or even a word document.  When you have it the way you want it you send it to your Silhouette the same way you would send it to your printer.

Easy Peasy!

And I have some video I will be showing you in the coming weeks that will show you just how easy it all is!

Stay tune, and if you haven't entered to win the Silhouette SD that I am giving away, you can do that over on the Silhouette Giveaway Post.  You have until tomorrow morning to enter!


  1. You make it sound 'so' easy. It would be great to win one.
    I can't wait to see videos. There aren't all that many videos of it working on youtube. :)

  2. Fun, fun toy!! And I hope the kiddos make a cameo in that video! :)

  3. Maybe I can get the kids to cut something out. THEN it would really show how easy it is to use! ;D

  4. Wow , would I love to have this!! I like all the things you can do with vinyl.

  5. :) I hope you find many more exciting ways to enjoy it!
