There’s a brand new kit out today! It’s the perfect little accent for all your Christmas memories and gifts. Just a bunch of Merry Little Words.
So here’s how it goes:
- There are three styles, white, colored and distressed.
- The first two come in the form of cut files (and PNG) so you can change the colors to whatever tickles your tinsel.
- It comes with a ‘frame’ file for Print+Cuts so that you don’t have to rely on the boxes to cut. Because if you do use the boxes, you’ll get it double cutting where the lines of each box rest against the other. I wanted to leave the boxes in tact so that you could change colors as needed. You can turn off the cut lines for the set of labels and then align the frame–with cut lines on–over the main image and use it that way.
- If you use DXF files and like the color choices, use the PNG file with the frame file and Align Top and Align Center. That way there’s no grouping or compound pathing involved. If you want to make it your own color scheme, then you’d have to make the words a compound path to do it–like normal.
- You can turn off the Line Color and Thickness if you don’t want any chance at seeing the lines when printing.
- You can also just trim these with scissors or a paper trimmer if you don’t have a craft cutter, like a Silhouette.
- Another great idea would be to use it as a background paper.
What’s really awesome is you can print out two sets on one piece of cardstock (I like Epson Premium Presentation Matte paper) and cut them out. In this little ensemble, I used the PNG file of both and layered it with the frames. I used my Knife tool to slice off the ‘readme’ text at the bottom of the PNG file too. The readme’s are there so if you need help with your options, then you’ve got them right there as a reminder.
My Print+Cut file ended up looking like this:
I love the thought having all these in a little container that I can pull from on a whim. Great for December Daily, Project Life or any cards or other crafts. It took all of five minutes to put together, print, and cut. Awesome!
