ScanNCut Videos: Unpacking Your Machine, Glitter Heart Magnets, & Making a Quilting Template
January 12, 2017
Today I'm sharing a trio of ScanNCut videos. I hope you find them useful. As always, I create tutorials based on the questions you ask, so let me know what you're curious about when it comes to your ScanNCut! And now, tutorials:
First up, whether you received a ScanNCut for Hanukkah or Christmas or you've been keeping yours in the box since you got in months ago (or you ordered one from HSN on Tuesday), it's time to take it out of the box! I'm sure you're super excited to get started. In this video I'll take you step-by-step through the process of unpacking your ScanNCut and review what comes in the box. You'll be ready to get started with your ScanNCut in no time at all!
The model I'm unpacking in the video is the 650W or dealer model. If you have any other model the process of unpacking will be pretty much the same, but the accessories may differ.
Have fun with your new ScanNCut and be sure to post what you make online using the hashtag #scanncut!
Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. I've got a little gift idea that is fun to make whether you're a kid or a grownup (or a kid masquerading as a grownup). Follow along with the video and let your creativity "shine" (get it?) in this easy glitter magnet tutorial. I'm even going to show you how to wrangle your glitter so that the magnet doesn't glitter bomb the recipient!
You could personalize the magnet with a name or an image. You could use a shape other than a heart -- maybe personalize with sorority letters or a business name? Lots of fun possibilities!
Also, it really matters what you use to seal the glitter. For this sample I used two coats (second coat after the first one dried) of Glossy Accents:
And for this one I used Tar Gel:
The glitter is definitely sealed in either way, but you see the texture of the glitter much more when using Tar Gel. You get more of a domed coat when using the Glossy Accents.
Finally, it's easy and simple to turn any pattern into a quilting template or stencil using your ScanNCut!
In the video I show you how to trace, scan, resize, and cut your brand new fabulous quilting stencil!
It's as easy as print, trace, cut!
Hope you find those videos helpful! Thanks for stopping by!
