silhouette project: a mother's day mirror decal

I know we’re a few weeks past Mother’s Day, but I wanted to share the little project I did for my wonderful mother. My brothers and I got her a food processor (Kitchenaid red, of course!), but no day of appreciation is complete without a handmade, loving touch.

So I got out my Silhouette digital cutter, fed it some “etched glass-look” vinyl, and typed out my message. “Good morning, wonderful mumsy!” will greet her at her bathroom mirror, every morning. Because Mother’s Day is about every day, and I want my mama to feel special every single morning.

Now Papa’s Day is coming up… time to think of another little project!
