Is there anything more geeky and romantic than Star Wars love?
I think not.

Step 1: What you will need...to make one.

Picture of What you will need...to make one.
You'll need:
Silhouette cutter machine  (or a hobby knife and patience)
contact paper and transfer paper

I used my silhouette to cut out contact shelf lining paper...it's cheap, but so hard to see!
But it's so cheap!  I buy this at the dollar store.

If you are using a Silhouette Cameo
My silhouette settings are:
Blade set to 5, cut depth on the software set to 1.
Cut speed at 3...better to go slow.
Carefully applied to wood with transfer
tape for the perfect stencil!

Of course you can print off the image and cut the contact paper out with a hobby knife as well.
Just takes some time and patience.

So you used the transfer paper as a way of getting not all the paint onto the board? I guess I'm a little confused as to its position and purpose.

How fun this would be as a holiday gift for two star war fans in love or married! Nice work!

You are right! I did this project for my husband for our 12th anniversary! :) Geek Love!
YAY!!!!! That is what I love to hear! Congratulations on your 12th anniversary of getting your geek on ....oh yeah and marriage ;-)
So cute! And I just love silhouettes :D

I love it too...from far, it looks classy and like any other silhouette (like maybe us when we got married?)...but when people read the saying they flip out! It's a hit!
I think that makes it even cooler! It's nerdy and fun and blends in with normal decor :D
