Free Silhouette Bird File

Have you entered the Silhouette UK Free Design Weekly Challenge yet? If not, why not have a go this week? You can download this lovely little bird file (a cardinal) for FREE until 7th March 2016 from the Silhouette Design Store.

When playing with the file I discovered that a little vinyl can brighten even the dullest of objects! This little bird is made from layering 3 colours of glossy self adhesive vinyl onto a plain zinc watering can.

Here are all the cut pieces layered on the transfer paper, ready to be applied to the watering can. You can see my registration shapes that I used to align the colours for a perfect match. I'll have a blog post for you later in the year with instructions on how to do that.

The weather was even nice enough to take some shots of the little can, no more than 8" tall, out in the garden. A rare treat for March in North East Scotland!

  1. Such a great idea, and the tassels just set the whole thing off. If you keep this up there will be no unvinyled surfaces in my home!
