Crafting for Disney: stroller signs & kid shirts

Are you headed to Disney?If so you may want to read this post! But before we get to that I have exciting news… From Wine to Whine is taking part in a Silhouette Challenge! That means 12 unique projects in 12 months! Now I know not everyone has access to an (amazing) cutter, so don’t worry I won’t go 24/7 Silhouette projects on you. But the good news is, a lot of what I can do with my machine you  can do without, just slightly different. So make sure you still check out the Silhouette posts, they may spark an idea.. or offer a non cutting machine walk through!

Ok, back to the Mickey Madness!!  My submission this month is geared around DISNEY WORLD! Unfortunately, Jo’s not the one going, it’s her buddy Ollie. But luckily for Ollie, Jo’s Mom has a crafting problem.. check it out!



No need to search (frantically) for your stroller… just make a stroller sign!!

If you are going to Disney YOU NEED A STROLLER SIGN! I cut a plastic binder to be 5×7 ( that size seemed to fit best without getting in the way). Then cut vinyl to decorate. Hole punched two holes and tied some cute Mickey ribbon through. I bet Ollie’s Mom will be able to find her stroller in the sea of strollers in 15 seconds flat (yes you are welcome!). NOW, for those of you that don’t have a cutting machine, use stickers!

Next on my list was some custom Disney Tee’s! Now, the plus in making custom shirts ahead of time (besides being cute and personal) they are cheaper then buying in the park. So plan ahead, shop around.. bet you could score some deals (and have some fun) 🙂

Nothing says Disney like Mickey Mouse and Jake and the Neverland Pirates! (don’t know who Jake is? I bet your kids are 7+).
Ok, I know Batman has nothing to do with Disney World. But what 4 year old boy isn’t obsessed with super hero’s?

Just in case you want to make a few Super Hero meets Mickey Mouse shirts of your own here’s what I did:

  • I took 3 circle shapes in the basic edition software, positioned to look like Mickey’s head and welded them together. Then I bought the batman symbol in the Licensed Products Area of the Silhouette Store, un-grouped and deleted the outside circle. Placed on top of my “Mickey’s” head, and Made a Compound Path. Tada, Mickey Batman done. (the Jake shirt was similar, except I bought a normal pirate symbol, dropped the skull and replaced with a Mouse head).

If you have any questions, just ask. And if you have any Mickey Tips for Ollie’s Mom feel free to share…I’m sure we could all use to hear a tip or two about the happiest place on earth!

xo, Dee

  2. Great job! We never got the opportunity to bring our kids to Disney. Now I wish I would have figured out how to make it work. LOVE THEM!!

  3. Look at you and your Disney fab self! I love these clever creations…and the fact that you’d pay $50 per shirt at Disney…but you only had to pay for the tee and cut file. Plus, that stroller sign is a heap of fun – – especially the polka dotted ribbon. 😉

    Thanks for participating in this month’s Silhouette Challenge Group Post, Dee! Whoo hoo!

  4. This is my kind of project! I do anything I can to save some money and this is a great way to get a customized look without shelling out some serious cash. Super cute and fun project!
