DIY...Tattooed Fruit and Pumpkins

I always am trying to think of new ideas for
weddings, home decor, crafts...life!
When I was asked to do a giveaway
for Silhouette products at 504 Main
giveaway--CLOSED

I was thrilled and when I received their Tattoo Paper!
My mind went crazy with ideas.
I wanted to try something new!
{at least I have not seen this before}
Tattooed Fruit and Pumpkins!
You can create your own designs and really do something special and unique!

Amazing Centerpieces

Table number, place cards, or just a special detail!

How excited am I!!!!
I did all of this WITH SCISSORS AND AN EXACTO KNIFE. 
NO MACHINE NECESSARY to use these cool products!
Here's what you need:

You just need the Silhouette Tattoo Paper and some fruit or a pumpkin.
Now,I discovers that the bumpier the object {like all those ridges on a pumpkin} the trickier it is to get it to stick...but it is just a learning curve...after a try or two...I got it!
The pumpkins were more challenging than the pears because the pears were smoother.
My images are from The Graphics Fairy.

Here's what to do:
Just decide on a design, print it out using your computer and printer, apply the adhesive, cut out - with your scissors, apply to the surface!
DONE and quick!
And these are the easiest to apply tattoos I have ever tried!
    I did a tablescape that I will be showing off on Thursday at 504 Main!
