Happy free shape Tuesday! This week’s shape is an adorable print and cut Christmas village , just the right size to display in a bell jar!
To print, then cut your shape, first open the shape in Silhouette studio. Then open the Page window and select Letter as your page size.
Then, open the registration marks window and turn them on.
In the screen shot above you can see that the printable shape fits nicely inside the red margin and does not overlap into the grey hashmarks. It will fit on a single page if you change the registration mark margins to match the ones below.
Now, you are all set to print! Once you’ve printed the shapes, load your paper on the cutting mat as it appears in Silhouette studio. Then, select your media type in the Silhouette cut settings window and click cut. The Silhouette will then read the registration marks and cut out your shapes. I’ve been using the Silhouette for a while, and I am still amazed at how cool the print/cut feature is! A quick tip here, if you print out the shapes on a regular copy paper, you may want to use one of our new light hold cutting mats. They are great for more delicate papers!
Next, carefully peal the shapes from the mat and assemble using your adhesive of choice.
I hope you enjoy your new shape!
