Tutorial | Sheriff Badge Stickers

Printable gold foil continues to be a favorite of mine. Its ability to be both beautiful and sturdy makes it an excellent choice for today’s kids craft. We will be using Silhouette’s amazing Print & Cut feature to make these sheriff badge stickers so be sure to have your printer nearby.

  • Once you’ve opened up both designs in Silhouette Studio®, ungroup them and delete the designs that won’t be used.
  • Leave the star as it is, but fill in the other designs with black.

  • Resize the star until it is the size you need. Mine is 2.7 in. x 2.4 in.
  • Resize the rest of the designs to fit inside the star. Stretch out the word “sheriff” to give it some added height.
  • To create the extra flourish design you’ll right click to select “Duplicate” then right click again to “Flip Vertically”.

  • Make sure that your page settings are set to “Letter” and your registration marks are turned on. If you don’t need to use the whole sheet of printable gold foil you can adjust the lowest registration mark to print higher. You can do this easily by adjusting the “Bottom Inset.”

  • Once everything looks good, print it on the printable gold foil using your home printer.

  • Place the sheet on your cutting mat and load it into your CAMEO or Portrait. In the “Cut Settings” window select only the red lines to be cut. Make sure “Printable Foil” is chosen as the material type.

  • I wanted the printable gold foil to be cut completely through so I made some adjustments by changing the blade to 10 and selecting “Double Cut”. Now the badges should be ready to cut.

The adhesive on the printable gold foil adheres really well to clothing, but is easy to peel off at the end of the day. I much prefer these over the flimsy clip on ones you’ll find at the store.

These gold foil sheriff badges are so fun and shiny! You could even personalize them by adding your child’s name. I think they’d make unique party favors, don’t you?

Analisa

Hi there, I’m Analisa! I love to travel and explore new places along with my husband and son. When we’re not on the go I’m happily crafting. I’ve been a crafter for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I collected every craft kit I could get my hands on. Not much has changed. I love my Silhouette because it such a versatile instrument for creating. I can stencil fabric with one project, then create stickers for my son with the next. I love experimenting with all it can do.

  1. Oops, sorry, now they are!

  2. It seems my second comment showed up but not my first! Disregard the other, please. Thanks for this cute idea, my grandsons will love it!

    1. Have fun!

  3. I am having trouble with smearing on the printable foil. Is there a fix for this?

    1. I usually let it sit for a couple of minutes between printing and cutting so the ink dries well. Are you printing at the highest quality (usually photo) with your printer? Maybe try lowering the quality of the print so it uses less ink.

  4. These are so cute…. and yet so simple to create! What font did you use? Is the flourish a Silhouette file?

    1. The word “sheriff” actually comes in the same file as the badge design. If you look towards the bottom of the post you’ll see the designs I used for this project. The flourish design is the second design in the group of flourish designs. It’s like getting 5 designs in only 2 design downloads!

      1. Thank you!
