I own a Silhouette Die Cut Machine (electronic, cuts from software on the computer).  It's a wonderful invention!  Car Accents is a vinyl made by Glue Arts and comes in all colors!  They are 12x12 sheets, which can be cut to fit into the Silhouette machine.  You can use the "cut piece" as well by placing it on the cutting matte.  This tutorial can be applied to any season or theme, the shapes are endless.  Keep in mind that your shapes should be no larger than 1", so intricate designs may not work that well.

The pictures below are in order of HOW TO.
