  1. This is such a great idea – especially for a housewarming present!

    1. Hi, I really like your idea for a housewarming gift 🙂

  2. I am a little new to using my silhouette, so do you have the directions for making this project. How do I get the states apart from each other? Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      To separate the states, you’ll want to ungroup the shape. You can do that by selecting the shape, then clicking the ungroup icon in the bottom left of your screen, or right click and ungroup. That will separate the outline from the group of states. Then, select the states and click ungroup again and you’ll be able to delete the ones you don’t want to use. 🙂 Since you are just getting started, there are some great tips and tutorials on our YouTube channel that you might find helpful too…

    2. Thanks so much for the info and the youtube link!!

  3. How were you able to make the chevron print inside the state?

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      I cut the shape out of a patterned paper. 🙂

  4. Beautiful project and thank you for the great deal on the bundle! I grabbed it right away.

  5. Yay, will be creating one today. I haven’t crafted in about a week or more.

  6. I am going to do the three states that my daughter has lived in, in individual frames for Christmas. Thanks for the template!

  7. wish you could have had the USA shape as an ‘add on’ and had other countries to pick from. Would buy but have no use for a US shape…i know it’s only $1.99 but i won’t use it otherwise.

  9. I figured out how to find the bundle! Cute design!

  10. Oh that’s a very cute idea! I need to mix up my home decor, and that would be super fast! And I have the states, so that makes it easy peasy!

  11. I wish there were countries as well…We are military and this would be a cool thing to make showing the different duty stations we have had over the past 16 years.

  12. I’ve been LOVING the bundles….good marketing..;) As I’m using up my gift card very fast. haha

    Keep’em coming…hopefully with more than on example.

    I love coming here everyday. You guys are so inspiring and I’ve used my silhouette much more based on your examples.

  13. Very cute. I want to do something like this, but I want to use heat transfer vinyl and put on a bag. How can I CUT out the shape with a CUT pattern in the same way you did with pattern paper?

  14. I don’t see this bundle? Am I missing something?

  15. Hehe, Thats something cool for home interior design inspiration..

  16. The link that you listed above with the individual states, it shows a map of the whole USA does it cute each state individually?

  17. Ok, so I bought the map of the US but it doesn’t cut them individually. How can I get each Individual state without any words? I just want the state shapes.

  18. Since the bundle is no longer available, can you identity what shapes and fonts you used to make the whole thing.
    Thank you!

  19. Sorry found it!

  20. is the “home” part printed – or how is the teal on the white background? Thanks!

    1. For the ‘home’ I used the offset feature to create the white mat, then cut the home out of the teal paper. If you haven’t used the offset feature before, here is a tutorial that will help get you started

  21. This is so cute! What size frame did you use?
