  6. Hi guys - just seeing this today, as yesterday was crazy! this was super easy to make with the Silhouette, but I don't see why it couldn't be done with any other cutting machine. Here is what I did:
    - I used red and blue smooth heat transfer material sold by Silhouette (http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/heatTransfer.aspx).
    -Picked my shape to use (well, my daugheter picked it: http://www.silhouetteonlinestore.com/v2/viewShape.aspx?id=13595)
    - Size the shapes and REVERSED it in the Silhouette Software (it needs to cut backwards so that when you iron it on, it is forwards)
    - Cut the larger heart out of the red heat transfer material
    -Cut the smaller heart and the big design out of blue heat transfer material
    - The heat transfer material has directions to use it, but basically, you put a cloth over the design and iron for about 60 seconds (cotton setting), one layer at a time.
    And that is it! Easy peasy! They have a printable heat transfer material that I am going to have to get my hands on next! ;-)
    If anybody tries this, I would love to see what you make!
