Creative Paper Craft Cut Out Decorations

I bought myself a crafting gift last year for Christmas, a Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and I've been delighted with the projects I can design, print and cut with ease from paper, fabric, vinyl and other flat media..

I made dozens of holiday paper crafts including the snowman garland, fir tree mantle decoration and Thanksgiving card shown here. I also designed 3D Christmas ornaments, swags and cute little gingerbread men mantle toppers.

The patterns I was using took hours to cut out by hand. With the craft cutter I can make so many more ornaments, garlands, shaped gift tags and paper craft cutouts for cards that I was able to give my Mom a stack to send to relatives in Germany.

Throughout the year I've made cut out paper decorations and cards for every special occasion and holiday. The most challenging and fun projects are gift boxes in seasonal shapes such as rabbits, hearts, and purse pockets.

Cameo Silhouette, My Craft Room Partner

I have a terrific tool in my craft room that lets me cut out all types of shaped paper crafts from cardstock, fabric, paper and even vinyl or magnet materials.

It's a Silhouette Cameo Craft Cutter - and it can quickly and easily cut out just about any type of complex die cuts, print and cut projects I design or find online.

It uses special software that comes with the cutter (the software is a freebie from the manufacturer) so I can use premade shapes, alter existing designs, or create my own cutouts and print-and-cut paper crafts for Christmas and oodles of other special occasions.

The Cameo cutter connects to my computer with a simple cable. It can cut out just about any font, stencil, printed design or die cut template once it's in the .STUDIO format. I can design my own shapes, or I can buy inexpensive ready to use patterns and load them directly into the style library. With the Designer license addon, I can convert my existing EPS files to DXF outlines from Adobe Illustrator and then import vector art I already made to make STUDIO shape files from my existing digital artwork.

They can be used to make clever holiday paper crafts, scrapbook papers, collages and lapbook pages plus I like to use them for holiday recipes and menus, gift wrap, family newsletters or to leave notes for Santa!
