Day #8 – How to Turn Regular Cut Files to Print & Cut

How to Turn Regular Cut Files into Print & CutWell, Christmas Eve is just one week away — so, if you are like me — you are working hard on your “to-do list”!    As a result, today & tomorrow’s posts are ones that I shared from 2013.   However, many of you have joined us since 2013, so this will be new to you!!  And its great information on how you can convert regular cut files into Print & Cut.     You may notice some differences in the software in the video & your software, since there have been quite a few updates in the last 2 years — but overall, it should be the same process!

Silhouette Print & Cut Gift Tag

Recently I was asked to participate in a Bake Sale for our MOPS group!  Now, at my age, I’m certainly not a “MOPS Mom” (Mother of Preschoolers) — but I’m a Mentor Mom & I love it!    Love being around these amazing young women & their babies!  So, baking & working in the kitchen are not where I shine — but I did manage to make these little Pecan Rolo Turtles!   I mean, you just line up square pretzels on a cookie sheet, melt a Rolo candy & then press a pecan into it!   (I actually pinned these!)  So, I decided that it I didn’t have the fanciest treats, I’d at least have a cute package! This cute little penguin is from the Silhouette Store — Just search for Arctic Penguin & he will pop up!   He’s the design that I wanted to use & you might notice that he’s not a Print & Cut file– but I’ll show you how to turn him into one!  There are several steps — so I thought a couple videos might be better.  Today’s Video will share how you turn a regular Silhouette File into a Print & Cut – and then tomorrow, I’ll show you how to make the tag!

Now you have an image that you can use to create your gift tag — and I’ll share tomorrow how to actually make your tag!   So now, you can start “baking” your Rolo Pecan Turtles — so they will be all ready to bag up!

    Terri, I want to thank you for the Nov conference! I am relatively new to my Cameo and attended the conference. A week ago my friends in the lab decided we needed to Christmas up the place. They all looked at me and asked it “that machine of mine” could crank out something. L had put together our 3 pAnel presentation board that we won with. I went home that night and created print and cut designs, a Merry Christmas sign, and ornaments with each of our names on them. I also cut out snowflakes to hang from the ceiling. Everyone loved them and they’re talking about Valentine’s Day. My Cameo is wonderful and I learned so much at the conference and from yours and Melissa’s sites, Thank you and Happy Holidays!
