Printable Christmas Village
First Cut

Printable Christmas Village

Happy free shape Tuesday! This week’s shape is an adorable print and cut Christmas villageย ,ย 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! ย 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.

  9. Sweet! That is adorable! Did I get that correct? You made them out of copy paper?
    I wish you could show more “step” for users like me, who are trying to learn the entire process that it took to make the project. Just saying. I LOVE my Cameo, and I love playing with it, but I am just not as masterful as you guys.
    TFS! It’s the cutest bell and tray, also!

  10. Wow…this is stunning and I love how you displayed it!

  12. This shape is no longer showing up as the Free Shape of the Week once you click past the Online Store homepage. Too bad. Though it is only 75 cents so I guess we really can’t complain too much! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. the free shape of the week is super cute but is coming up as $0.75 ๐Ÿ™

  14. Just cut the free shape it is sooo sooo cute love it will take it to work and display it there as it is a scrapbook shop

  15. I cut out the windows in the 2 larger homes and put some battery operated tea lights under them. They light up! Super cute!
