Silhouette Tutorial - How to make any Silhouette Store File a Print and Cut

For this video I wanted to quickly walk you through an easy way to take those Silhouette Files that come in as just blank cut files and turn them into what the sample picture looks like.  For instance, I took this file



 And made it into this:

Based on the Echo Park Sample in the Store

Here is a video showing you my process:

  1. THANKS A MILLION for this post!!!! I just busted out my old Silhouette SD and made a couple of cards. Now that it's out, I guess I'll play around some more.

  3. Sandy,
    I'm sorry I forgot to answer your question about my printer. I tried to reply on the blog comment but for some reason it's not letting me from my iPad.

    My printer is an hp8600 office jet pro. It's really overkill for a home printer but I love it. It is an all in one (print/scan/fax) wireless. I've also got a wide format hp printer but don't use it much because its an ink hog.

    The real trick to getting good quality prints is the paper you use. I think just about all the hp or Epsom printers have great quality but if you don't print on good paper you won't be happy. I use one of the following (all print equally as well)

    Staples photo supreme double-sided matte paper http://t.staples.com/skava/static/product.html?type=StaplesProduct&input=%7B%22url%22%3A%5B%22http%3A%2F%2Fwww.staples.com%2FStaples-Photo-Supreme-Paper-8-1-2-inch-x-11-inch-Double%2Fproduct_564121%22%5D%7D
    Or
