I’m playing with my Curio and Silhouette’s free shape this week to bring you these cute DIY sugar skull seals. I even successfully experimented with the Print and Cut feature on this lovely little machine – and guess what? It works perfectly! Oh and guess what? You can save $15 on the Curio with promo code MARITZA – Happy Friday, right? This offer is good through Nov 24 2015. So if you need one, go on over and let me know how your first project goes!
- Silhouette Studio
- Silhouette Curio
- Sugar Skull shape (which is free this week!)
- Glue or a Sticker Machine (to adhere your seals to your packages)
- In Silhouette Studio, go to the Design Settings Page and confirm that your page and mat are showing Curio settings
- Create your seals. I created mine as circles (1 in. wide)
- Open the Sugar Skulls shape. Add some color (using the fill tool) and set to No Cut
- Adjust your Registration Marks settings so that they fit the smaller Curio mat
- Set your blade to Cardstock settings in the Tool 1 (red) slot
- Send to print
- Load your cardstock on to your mat (note: peel the blue protective sheet off first).
- Load your mat and other platforms onto the tray. In the settings, you will see 6 platforms are required. These are the platforms that come with your Curio bundle. Each one is labeled with a 1 or 2 (which counts as the number of platforms). Your mat counts as 1. So you will need a two 2s and a 1, then your mat (2+2+1+1=6)
- Load your tray onto your machine, and send to cut using Cardstock settings. The machine will read your registration marks and cut your seals
And that’s it – you now have the prettiest sugar skull seals to send those last minute tricks or treats. Don’t forget – if you’re looking to get a Curio, you can save $15 on the Curio with promo code MARITZA. Happy Shopping!
