Gift ideas with your Silhouette Curio machine

I love that with the Silhouette machines you can create custom gifts that are unique to be given out. Or if you end up really liking it, keeping if for yourself – shhhhh!

A few weeks back I did a post on gift ideas you can create with your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait. Well the great news is, all of those ideas could also be completed with a Curio as well, since the Curio can cut all the same materials that the Cameo or Portrait can.
Check out that post here:
5 Gift ideas created with Your Silhouette

Today, I have more gift ideas that can be created with your Silhouette Curio machine.
These gift ideas are specific to the Curio as the Cameo and the Portrait are not designed for etching. For a little bit more information on that check out this post here:
Etching with your Silhouette machine

Instead of rushing at the end of the year, let’s start thinking about it, making lists, gathering supplies, and getting things done now.
Then we can enjoy the time later!
Just make a list of the gifts you have already done and put the list & gifts in a safe place.
Just remember where that “safe” place is.
