Cut Paper Leaf Votives

Today I'm going to light up your world.  Or at least show you a fun way to light up your world. I used my ScanNCut to create these very simple (but highly effective) cut paper leaf votives.

I used painted plastic to cover the cut areas, but you can also leave (pun intended) them completely open if you wish, as in this example below:

To be super safe, be sure to use battery operated LED votive candles inside, instead of real candles.  

If you're interested in making a project like this one, here are some helpful resources for you:

Also, I wanted to share a new product that is available for ScanNCut that makes my creative flow sooooo much easier: It's called ScanNCut Link.  It's a plugin for Adobe Illustrator that allows you to easily send files directly from Illustrator to your machine without going through CanvasWorkspace.  It also allows you to create registration marks to cut images that don't scan well.  Watch the video for all of the details:

Here's a peek at those watercolored flowers I cut out using the registration marks. 

Remember, ScanNCut Link can do 3 things for you:

If you do your creating in Illustrator, ScanNCut Link is going to save you tons of time! 

Finally, I wanted to share that I'm teaching 2 full-day ScanNCut Classes for in December.  They're live online classes for DX machines.

Thanks for stopping by!
