DIY Valentine's Clothespins - Maritza Lisa

Happy Monday! So, over the weekend, I thought I’d test out my CAMEO. I had these cute little clothespins and wanted to decorate them with hearts for Valentine’s. So, how small can I get my trusty machine to cut these little hearts? I got as small as .25 in wide! On cardstock. Not only are these little hearts perfect for small items, but they make great confetti. I thought I’d also try designing my own hearts. Wanna try too?


The What

The How

  1. In a new Silhouette Studio (I use v3 Designer Edition) document, use the pencil tool to create half of your heart shape
  2. Mirror your shape to the right
  3. Make sure your shapes touch at the middle
  4. Make your shape a compound path
  5. Resize to your new heart shape (I used .25 in), then replicate and send to cut. For the cut settings, I used cardstock, but changed my speed to 1 since the shape was so small

6. Once you have your adorable hearts cut out, adhere with glue to your clothespins
