I use this brand of acetate (also know as transparency film) for my projects. It cuts beautifully in my Silhouette machine. Apollo Transparency Film
Here are the steps to my project -
1- Open up Silhouette program.
2- Find the 2 box cut files and place them in the workspace.
When deciding what boxes to use from Lori's library - I chose to use 2 of my favorite boxes to use with acetate. I love these boxes because they require no gluing - which can be tricky with acetate because a lot of the adhesives show through so these boxes were perfect. I used the Santa Petal box (minus the "santa" parts) and the No Glue Gable Box. I used some of Lori's darling Hang Tags well.
- No Glue Gable Box (Silhouette Store)
- Santa Petal Box (Lori Whitlock Shop) (Silhouette Store)
- 5 Hang Tags (Silhouette Store)
3- Since the acetate is fairly thick, I used the textured cardstock settings (Blade Depth 6, Cutting speed 3, Thickness 33. I also checked the Double Cut box to make sure that the cuts are nice and deep and this also helps when you go to fold up the boxes.
Here are the boxes up close - I used Doodlebug Design's Happy Go Lucky line for the paper and stickers.
So my challenge to you is to go pick up some of this fun medium from your local office supply store and try your hand at this fun technique. Thank you for stopping by!
