Thought I'd share that the Cameo cuts fairly thick acetate. I found a pad of 8x11 [25 sheets] of acetate at M's and ran it through the Cameo. I used the cupcake box but gosh pillow boxes,anything would be cute. It would be nice if the sheets were 12x12. I used it at 7-8 in double pass mode.

Thanks for sharing. Each post about the cameo has me convinced it's time to dump my cricut!


It's never too late for a happy ending.

Oh and it doesn't stop there, I'm sure there are endless possibilities. I got some of the Martha Stewart adhesive vinyl film for stenciling [her new line of craftiness] 3yards on a roll, and I cut a piece and put it on the mat and whaaala I etched our name on the back of a casserole glass pan in 5 minutes. [reverse your name before cutting it out] It's way less expensive than using our color vinyl. Blade set at 1.5 under vinyl setting.

GReat ideas Kathy! Love the Martha stewart one...it's easily available with a coupon too!! I bet you could use it to cut stencils for fabric painting.

Kathy, I have been wanting to try etching but I heard somewhere that you shouldn't put it in the dishwasher afterwards. Do you know if this is true?

I stick everything in the dishwasher and would hate for the etching to ruin.

Irma I'll stick it in the dishwasher just to check. The etching cream is pretty potent toxic stuff according to the bottle warnings. So I'm thinking once its etched its on there for good. I'll let you know.

Lisa that is really nice! I just put that spiral in my cart. So since you had those butterflies did you just do a trace to cut them out on your Sil?

I used an image from the internet for the butterflies then I traced and cut it out using the silhouette. I made them double sided and you can do that by creating a mirror image. replicate window> mirror image, then a glued the wrong sides together.I hope that helps.
