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.
