Darth Vader!

My grandson had his 5th birthday party yesterday at Chuck E. Cheese.  What a great time was had by all!  It was loud, chaotic and hectic...but I guess that added to the fun! LOL!!!

I love to embellish wrapped presents.  I find that kids don't really like ribbon wrapped around boxes because they can't get it off without help so I just love to use plain paper and put some sort of design on it.

I found this little Lego-looking Darth Vader online...pulled the image into my Silhouette software, traced it...sized it to fit my box and cut it out!  The block font is a favorite for cutting out... Aharoni, downloaded free from

After it was cut out I lightly taped the "negative" or stencil to the box and then used it to line up my pieces for gluing.  The result?  Perfectly placed and straight pieces.  I did the same thing with his name....otherwise I KNOW they'd be all over the place.  As David ripped into his package his parents were horrified that he ripped right through it but I just laughed and said "No worries!  I can easily cut another one out! Anytime!"  I. Love. My. Silhouette.

'Nuff said....

Happy Crafting and Keep Creating!
