Love Letter Glass Block

My Silhouette arrived on Christmas morning.  Oh how I was so eager to start cranking out beautiful projects.  But no…there were a few snags and the cutting mat ended up ripped and the blade fell apart. *GASP*.  However, Silhouette was nice enough to replace these items free of charge, I had no other problems with it and  I can finally reveal my very first Silhouette project…my Love Letter Glass Block.

I have seen glass block art around for a while and it just so happened that we had one block left over from our bathroom remodel.
 
I started by purchasing the file from the Silhouette store.  I measured the face of the block and sized my file just a bit smaller.
 
 
Using pink vinyl, I cut out my design and adhered it to the glass block.

It sat like that for a few days until I realized that my recent washi tape purchase from Pick Your Plum would work perfectly as a border.  I thought that the tape was a diamond pattern but to my surprise when I unrolled it, it was CHEVRON!  This project is getting better and better by the minute. I added my chevron washi tape to the edges of the block and VOILA….
 
Thrifty Valentine decor.

This is just the beginning of my love affair with the Silhouette.
