Drawing on Wooden Discs with the Silhouette Curio™




Hello,  This week I've been using my Silhouette Curio™ to decorate blank wooden discs over on the Silhouette UK Blog.  I used some flat wooden disks from Hobbycraft, a pack of the new Silhouette Sketch pens and my Silhouette Curio™.  

My instructions show how to make a template for accurate placement of the designs onto the discs, which would also work for engraving as well as drawing.





WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Flat Wooden Discs (1.5"/3.8cm circles)

Silhouette Sketch Pens in Brown (NEW Naturals)

Silhouette Curio™ with Regular-sized Base and Cutting Mat

Silhouette Chipboard, or thick card

Downloaded Seaside Designs (#27917, #84503, #46674, #43866 or similar)

Small Drawstring Bag in Canvas or Hessian


I made sufficient of the discs so that they could be used to play the following games

1. For a simple Snap/Pairs game:
Two or more sets with a minimum of one set of designs for each player. Lay out an equal number of discs face down in a grid pattern in front of each player. Take turns to reveal one disc, and the player who calls snap correctly when a pair is revealed keeps the pair. The winner is the player with the most discs when one player has no discs left.

2. For a Matching Activity (for a younger child):
Making a larger number of discs with a single design, print out a complete set of the discs on paper and laminate (I used a simple screen shot).




I placed the finished discs in a small hessian drawstring bag to complete the rustic look.
