Next, I wanted to add a birthday touch so I went looking for a simple birthday cut and found these birthday cutout tags also by Alaa Studio, but they come with numbers in them. I did not want a number so I decided to play around with welding, hoping it worked in similar ways to my Gypsy and YEAH...it did. Here is how I did it:
|Original Tags by Alla Studio in Silhouette Store|
1. I made an oval over the number in the design and welded the 2 shapes. (making the number disappear and part of the circle.
2. I still wanted the inner circle the design had so I added a circle inside to fit.
3. Once you have the design you want using 2 shapes you click MAKE in the modify menu and the items become one image.
4. Save your new design (I saved mine right in my library).
This challenge was a learning experiment for me and now I have a simple birthday box. When I know who it will be going to I plan on cutting out the name and gluing it on top of the circle. It is fun learning this new software and machine! Thanks for stopping by today.
