Retro Bread Box

I got THIS bread box from Target. Then I used the Rennie Mackintosh font (The free version is called Hill House) and cut it out of vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo and voila! Retro looking bread box :-)

Okay, I need to know more about this vinyl lettering? Where do I get this stuff from, how do i go about printing fonts on vinyl? what is a silouhette?? I am totally lost here, but REALLY want to be in the know. Thank you for your advice & super cute ideas.

Thank you for your comment! This is the Silhouette Cameo: http://silhouetteamerica.com/silhouetteCameo.aspx
It's basically the same thing as a Cricut (if you have ever heard of one of those) but I like the Cameo WAY better. One of the reasons I like the Cameo better than the Cricut is because you can use any font that you have installed on your computer. With the Cricut I believe that you have to buy their own alphabet designs. You can get vinyl from your local craft store but you will need a digital die cutter to cut out fonts out of the vinyl. It also makes it a lot easier if you get transfer tape which you can use to transfer the vinyl onto your finished product. Thanks again, hope this helps! If you have any other questions please feel free to ask :-)
