Open a new page in silhouette studio. Ensure you have selected the correct mat size and that the Page size matches the size of media you have chosen.
I'm adding candy canes to my design so I have added them to the virtual mat and resized them to fit my project. I'm adding them to this sheet as I'm loading red vinyl into the machine.
Arrange your text and candy canes to make the best use of your media and then click send in the software.
Load your vinyl onto the cutting mat and load into the machine. Select the appropriate material from the drop-down menu and carry out a test cut. Adjust the settings where necessary until a clean cut is achieved.
Next, we are going to Personalise the camera with the names of the children it will be 'reporting to Santa'!
Measure the height of the usable space around the base of the camera. Use this measurement to determine the height of your text.
Resize your text using the drag boxes or by using the point size located within the text style panel.
Arrange your text to make the best use of your media and then click send in the software.
To increase the contrast and make the names stand out better I have created a panel of white vinyl using the shape tool located down the left-hand side of the software. Make the box just bigger than the names. When you are happy with the size of the box select the text by clicking on it and click on the Cut button in the software,
Weed all of the completed cut jobs and apply the designs to the dummy camera using transfer tape. Layer the white candy cane pieces into the red outline.
Add some batteries to the camera and let your children know that the North Pole has started making the 'Naughty or Nice' list, lol!
Hope you all get numerous hours of good behaviour from your little ones in relation to this one!!!
