From Remodalholic, I snagged a tutorial for a PB knockoff featuring giant numbers. As usual, it doesn't make sense for me to write a tutorial, just to show you how the Kindergarten Crafter version goes.
Even with the Silhouette, cutting out numbers larger than 8" wide was pretty time consuming. It took me an entire day to figure out the best / easiest way. Hint: Split the big ones in half and lop of the shortest ends of the tall numbers (7 for example) and just lump all the bottom ends on a single sheet. No sense using long sheets when you don't have to.
Use cool, decorative fonts. Don't ask why this is sideways, I think I took the picture that way.
You can see the ridge from the book pages under the coat of paint. I didn't have a phone book because we threw them all away (recycled. natch!) because we thought we'd never need them. Sheesh... famous last words.

The other project was a gift for YoungSon the linguist.
Originally, I did this:
That's extensive. And the photo isn't faded, it's through the back side of the transfer tape.
Add some shiny paint:
CAREFULLY (seriously, this is hard!) peel off the vinyl and place it on the matching canvas and make another one, this time using black paint, and VOILA!!!!
A set of Arabic language wall canvases. Woot!!!
