Which Cameo Bundle Should YOU Choose?

The Silhouette Cameo is an awesome machine!  You can do so much with it from paper crafting to working with vinyl and much, much more!

We have a LOT of Cameo bundles available.  One  question we hear a lot is “Which Cameo bundle should I choose?”  To help you pick, I’ve broken down what’s included in each bundle, below!

  1. Hi Kala!
    Along with everyone else, I too am not sure which bundle to purchase. My sister and I are definitely wanting to make shirts and we already have a heat press. My husband also wants to do some woodwork projects that I can put sayings on. I’d really like to use it for many different projects like signs or other kinds of things I can make for gifts once I learn how to use it. So, could you point me in the right direction? I’d appreciate it greatly!!

    1. Hi Kelsey,
      We have so many great bundles, but I know how it can be overwhelming if you’re not sure where to get started! There are a few that I think you would really like – the best one being this one: http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-cameo-3-machine-bundle-59-ultimate-mega-kit-bundle-htv-vinyl-diy-chalk.html?___SID=U – it has a bit of everything in it- plenty of heat transfer for shirts (glitter and smooth), vinyl for signs or decals, sketch pens to draw instead of cut, the full tool kit, chalk kit, fabric kit, rhinestone kit- really it’s a “well rounded” bundle and you get a LOT for your money.

      If you wanted to go with a slightly smaller bundle, this one would be great- http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-cameo-3-machine-bundle-42-glitter-heat-transfer-vinyl-htv-designs-adhesive-backed-vinyl-designs-tools.html This one has heat transfer and some tools, and regular vinyl too.

      I don’t think you can go wrong with any of our bundles, you always get so much more for your money with a bundle!

      Hope this helps!

  2. Hello! I wanting to buy a Silhouette Cameo 3 bundle. I’m just not sure what to get. I want a starter kit that has a little bit of it all….HTV, decal vinyl, tools, sketch pens, etc. Can you please help!

    Lauren says:
  3. Hello, I am interested in purchasing a cameo 3 but I am unsure of which bundle to buy! I plan on using it for mostly vinyl and paper projects. Is there a certain bundle you would recommend for that?

    Abigayle says:
    1. Hi Abigayle!
      We have lots of bundles to pick from but not one yet that specifically is for paper crafting. I would then go for more vinyl and tools and sketch pens (which you can also use for paper projects). The best bundle for this would be bundle 21 (http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-cameo-3-machine-bundle-21-sketch-pen-pack-guide-25-colors-vinyl-silhouette-tool-kit-designs.html). This bundle gets you lots of vinyl (25 sheets!) with transfer paper, a full pack of sketch pens, the Silhouette tool kit and designs for vinyl with projects and inspiration, and the Help for DIY Vinyl Projects book. This bundle gets you started with the vinyl and then you also have the sketch pens for your paper projects!

      Hope this helps!

  4. Hi. I want a cameo 3 to:
    1. Make reusable stencils
    2. Vinyl in tshirts
    3. Vinyl on wood and cuos
    Fabric cutting

    Which bundle would you recommend?

    Jessica says:
    1. Hi Jessica,
      There are a few you can look at! Bundle 36 has vinyl for wood signs and glitter vinyl for shirts.
      34 has vinyl for signs as well and smooth vinyl for shirts.

      Or bundle 5 is what I call our “Jack of all trades bundle” – which has a pack of vinyl for signs, a sheet of heat transfer so you can do a shirt or two, some sketch pens, black fabric ink, glass etching materials, and some paper rhinestones. This is nice to try everything out and see what you like and then you can get more of whatever you are interested in.

      Hope this helps!

  5. Hi! I am interested in getting a Cameo to make shirts, stickers, signs, and more.

  6. I currently handpainted wine glasses and would like to add vinyl , as I’ve saw awesome wine glasses done with vinyl. I want to buy a machine and my research has led me to a silhouette (rather than cricut)I would also like to do wood signs with the Silhouette. So my question is …Which silhouette Cameo 3 bundle to buy?

    Angela Bunch says:
    1. Hi Angela-
      The Cameo 3 is a great machine- I think I would recommend bundle 23 for you (http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-cameo-3-machine-bundle-23-vinyl-starter-bundle-25-sheets-vinyl-transfer-paper-guide-tool-kit-vinyl-designs-pixscan-mat.html) as it’s got the vinyl you need for signs and you could use it as a stencil on glasses!

      Hope this helps!

      Kala says:
  7. I just want to make stencils for painting. What should I get?

    MARLA WILSON says:
    1. I use vinyl as a stencil, so any bundle that has vinyl would be great for painting. If you wanted to use the same stencils over and over, you could get stencil material, but we don’t have any bundles with the stencil materials.

      Kala says:
  8. Looking into getting a Cameo 3 to make decals for auto, PC, cups, etc. I think it’s the vinyl kit but would appreciate input.
