Making Patterned Paper with your Silhouette

Have you ever wanted to create your own patterned paper? Today I show you two ways to do just that.

Method 1

1. Choose an image in your silhouette collection of cut files.
2. Reduce to the size you like.
3. Click on fill page.
4. Select a background color and send it to the back.
4. Select all images and turn off cut file.
5. Print.
Note: There is no need to use crop marks with this method.

Method 2
1. Drag images (JPG, PNG, GIF or BMP files) to your patterns folder.
2. Create shape and highlight.
3. Scroll to bottom of available patterns and select your new pattern.
4. Adjust size of pattern in Advanced Options.
5. Turn on crop marks.
6. Print.
7. Run though Silhouette to cut out shape.

Come back next Tuesday for another Silhouette Video Tutorial: Fussy cutting photographs.

Happy Crafting,
