What kind of material was the pirate cut from?? Adhesive backed or did you have to glue it??

That cold weather made you put your thinking cap on!!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

The pirate was cut from plain printer paper and glued in place. Once a top coat is applied it is well encapsulated and will last a long while. I have things I made that way that are over 40 years old and still look good.

The Scan N Cut is a pretty nifty little machine, Andy. Considering it is a drag knife cutter cnc that sells for around $300, it's hard to beat. Brother has an online-based program that can used to create designs and convert SVG files into the Brother FCM format for cutting. It is also wireless so you can import and save your files either with or without a USB thumb drive.

Remarkable! I ask my wife if she knew anything about this machine (she does quilts - among other things). She said: "Of course!". I'm still wondering why she doesn't have one. I bet we have one soon since she knows I might ask her to copy/cut something for me to paste. Might should have kept my mouth SHUT!

Yes, Gary, the Cricut machine is similar to the Scan N Cut in that they both will cut things out. The Scan N Cut has some distinct advantages. Here's a link to a good comparison of the two machines. Creative by Erin Bassett

Beautiful sign, Oliver. How much do I have to pay you to make sure you never tell my wife about that machine? She has at least three Cricuts and has been drooling over the latest one for a while now...if she finds out about that Scan N Cut I'm dead....at least budget-wise.
