I love using my Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine for cool projects like vinyl decor. The vinyl cuts really easily in the Silhouette, simply cut your shape and use the pick tool to help weed out all the extra vinyl around the image. Then place a transfer sheet on top to pick up the image and then lightly burnish it to your surface. It sticks really well but will easily peel off when your ready to remove it. I made myself a couple of fun Harry Potter cut outs, Harry riding his broom for my car window using the black vinyl and a Golden Snitch for my laptop using the gold. The Harry Potter images are available to download in the Silhouette on-line store.
