Peppermint Die Cuts for a Birthday Party

I love using the Cameo Silhouette cutting machine! I used it to make the peppermint candies you see hanging against the wall. Then I took the sheet of white cardstock leftover from the smaller circles and used it for a scrapbook page, which I’ll share later.

Trinity had a small get-together with a handful of friends for her birthday, and since she danced the Marzipan scene in the Nutcracker last month, I went with a Marzipan ballet theme, focusing on peppermint.

The cut I used was Candy Peppermint Swirl by Samantha Walker (available in the Silhouette online store). I customized the cut because I didn’t want the twisted wrapper that was part of the original design.

    Just love your theme and decorations for Trinity’s party. Also like the way you hung the balloons, so festive. I hope to get a Silhouette one day.

    What a beautiful party, which will make beautiful memories for all of you!

  • Thank you. I expect to do a layout, though I don’t know when.. I cut extra peppermints to use on the page.

    Wow! Stunning party decor you made with the Silhouette. I love that you have a die cutting machine now. It’s fun to see how you’re starting to use it in your scrapbooking and other crafts.
