DIY Personalized Lap Desk

So my first attempt at cutting vinyl with the Silhouette Cameo {aka Miss Cameo} was for this personalized lap top project for my niece's birthday. 

You may remember a few weeks ago I shared the handmade earrings & jewelry card that I created for her. Well, during Christmas, Santa brought her a lap top which I happen to know she was wishing for only because I came across her note to him while "accidentally" eating some of the cookies she had left out for him. Don't judge. Any who, I thought a personalized lap desk would be a great birthday gift to go along with her new computer.

I found this perfectly pink & girlish one at Hobby Lobby.

Pink & Girlish Lap Desk

 After downloading a butterfly graphic from the Silhouette store I created my design on my computer & then had Miss Cameo do the printing and cutting of the vinyl. Then all that was left to do was to adhere the vinyl to the lap desk {I make this sound so simple but truthfully this was the first time I used my Silhouette & this creation was after I spent 4 hours & a lot of wine trying to figure things out...perhaps, the wine could have something to with it taking 4 hours BUT again there you go with that judging thing!}.

Lap Desk for Kids

Even if you don't have an electric cutter you can still do this project!  There are plenty of vinyl sellers on Etsy that you can purchase personalized names or words from. I told you before I got your back!

I still plan on sharing a tutorial with tips & things I've learned on how to cut vinyl but right now it pains me to think of that night. So stay tuned.

Speaking of personalized things anyone remember the first personalized item they received as young kiddo? 

Mine was a little ballerina jewelry box!
