I’m back with a new post using my Silhouette Cameo 4!! I promised you a project after my last Silhouette 4 unboxing post. So today I’m sharing a Spring Flower Shop sign I made using the new machine.
A couple weeks ago I was in Kirklands and came across this beautiful Flower Market sign, but it was almost $40.00. I loved the look but didn’t want to pay the price, plus it was a little to big for what I needed. So I decided I was gonna make one of my own. I already had all the supplies on hand!
So let’s get started!

Flower Shop Sign Supplies Needed:
- Silhouette Cameo 4
- Wood Shadow Box
- Black Vinyl
- Transfer Paper
Step 1 – Paint Shadow Box
I went through my craft supplies and found this wooden sign to use for this project. I grabbed some white and black acrylic paint to get started. I painted the edges first with the black, then went around the rest with the white acrylic paint.
Step 2 – Find Phrase
Since I knew I wanted to make a Spring Flower Shop sign, I just went into the Silhouette Library and typed in “Flower Shop”. It gave me a TON of options to choose from.
This is the design ID and designer of this design.
Step 3 – Cut and Weed Phrase
Once I finally selected the design I wanted, I brought it over to Silhouette Studio and sized it to fit my shadow box. I selected vinyl, glossy. Then the blade setting automatically changed. With this new Cameo 4 you choose your material in the software and the machine automatically sets the blade.
Now it’s time to weed our phrase. Most of my signs I use the vinyl as a stencil, but this time I actually decided to use the vinyl for my phrase.
Step 4 – Add Transfer Tape
Once you have weeded your phrase it’s time to add the transfer paper. This will help transfer your phrase to the wood perfectly.
Peel the white part off the back of the phrase.
Step 5 – Add Phrase
Lay your phrase on the wood sign. Make sure to smooth out any bubbles with your scraper.
Next, gently remove the transfer tape. Now we have a perfect Spring sign!!
Now I’m ready to display! I know it’s still Winter and we have a couple more month until Spring is finally it. But I couldn’t wait to start getting the house ready for Spring.
I found these beautiful tulips at TJMaxx last week and I knew it would pair up great with the Flower Shop Sign I made.
I recently redecorated my living room. If you follow my Instagram, then you see the changes! I think this Flower Shop sign makes a great addition.
As always thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project! if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
