Stitching on paper...a Silhouette tutorial

I've received a number of questions about a recent scrapbook layout I made for the Heidi Swapp Media Team...this is the layout:


And this is what I've gotten questions on...


This embroidered frame/word...

So, today I'm going to share just how I did it! All you need is your Silhouette software, your Silhouette machine and your imagination (oh, and some embroidery floss & a needle!) and you can embroider any design you like onto paper...fun, huh?

STEP 1:

Open your Silhouette software and choose your files (I used digital files available from Heidi Swapp...to learn how to change .png files into .studio files, click here)


STEP 2:


STEP 3:


STEP 4:



STEP 5:


STEP 6:


That's it! Easy peasy...

Now, if you don't want to add the frame to your word...you want to simply cut a word (or other shape) to embroider, skip steps 3 & 6. Play around with this - you can really do so many cool things with your Silhouette!

  5. Okay, I'm feeling a little silly. Totally came back to this tutorial today and tried it but it doesn't seem to work for letters? Maybe I just need to find a letter that's set up as an object?
