The theme for this month’s Silhouette Challenge was right in my wheelhouse…print and cut.
Several years ago, the gift packaging project pictured below was posted on Martha Stewart’s site. It’s no longer there, but it continues to live on via Pinterest and gets circulated in the various craft groups every so often. When it first appeared, I started working on a font to make it easy to create these stand up letters with a digital diecutter.
Note: this post is updated to reflect updates in both products as of 11/9/2015 There has been a deluge of biased information out lately comparing the Cricut Explore vs the Silhouette Cameo but the truth is the systems are very different, each with strengths and weaknesses and neither is a slam dunk for everyone.
