Do you have trouble deciding on gifts for people? Here are five ideas for gifts for some of your crafty friends and family. We hope this quick gift guide helps you narrow down your options, and make a decision.

 

Silhouette Cameo

1. A Silhouette Cameo is a great gift for any crafter. It is a die cutting machine, but the advantage is that you are able to use the Silhouette Software to download designs as well as create your own designs within your own programs to make one of a kind creations on a variety of materials. Whatever your craft material of choice, Silhouette Cameo can cut paper, vinyl, postcards, scrapbooking paper and photo paper. It also cuts fabric, and I even read that it can cut leather, and clay, though these may require a blade specifically dedicated to those materials, as it can dull the blade.

Don’t forget to check our entire line of Silhouette products! We carry the Cameo, Curio, Portrait and the Mint. Oh, and if you are a Cricut user, we have those too.
