While waiting for the tomato sauce to reduce so we can finish canning it, I thought I would play in my craft room for a bit. For our upcoming anniversary, hubby picked out a new tackle box and mentioned that he thought he needed some fish and pointed to a fish skeleton sticker in the store. He also mentioned putting a Tigger on it. So I looked through the Silhouette Design Studio store, but I couldn't find the right fish skeleton, so I found a picture on the web where the person provided a .pdf for downloading so people could play with it themselves. Bingo! I opened that in Photoshop, erased the background, created a layer, filled that with black and then made the black layer conform to the shape of the fish. Once saved as a bitmap, I popped that into Inkscape, traced the bitmap and saved it as a SVG. Then I was able to open the SVG in Silhouette and re-sized it to the variety of sizes.
Once I cut them out and put them on the front of the box, hubby said it needed a hook, line and bobber. Well that's easy enough because the hook and bobber can be purchased in the Silhouette store. Check. Then some clear vinyl cut thinly for the fishing line and it was done.
Once the Tigger was on, hubby was looking at the back of the box and said it needed fish too. So a few more cuts on the Cameo and little help from hubby to figure what should go where and it was done. It was fun to work on the project with hubby.
Now we just have to finish the sauce and get ready for a full week of work. After four weeks of three day weekends, it's going to weird to work all week again.
