DIY...Tattooed Fruit and Pumpkins and a $50 Silhouette Product Giveaway...No Machine Required!

I am still having way too much fun with my Silhouette products!
{Giveaway link is at the bottom of the post}
How excited am I!!!!
When I received my tattoo paper from Silhouette, I put my thinking cap on to try and figure out what I could do that was different. Neither of my kiddos are big into stickers or tattoos...so I wanted to stretch myself...
FRUIT
and
PUMPKINS
were the answer!
I did all of this WITH SCISSORS AND AN EXACTO KNIFE. 
NO MACHINE NECESSARY to use these cool products!
Tattooed Fruit and Pumpkin Tutorial
Here's what you need:
You just need the Silhouette Tattoo Paper and some fruit or a pumpkin.
Now,I discovers that the bumpier the object {like all those ridges on a pumpkin} the trickier it is to get it to stick...but it is just a learning curve...after a try or two...I got it!
The pumpkins were more challenging than the pears because the pears were smoother.
My images are from The Graphics Fairy.

Here's what to do: 
{I just followed the package directions}
Just decide on a design, print it out using your computer and printer, apply the adhesive, cut out - with your scissors, position and rub, apply a moist cloth to dampen and loosen the top paper...and you are DONE!

And these are the easiest to apply tattoos I have ever tried!
I did a tablescape that I will be showing off on Thursday!
{What a great idea for a wedding!}

I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS IDEA.
