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.
If you're interested in making a project like this one, here are some helpful resources for you:
- Watch my video on ScanNCut perforations (those dashed lines that create folds).
- Visit CanvasWorkspace Online and look for the FREE "Love Story Lamp Shade" cut files and project instructions.
- Watch my video on how to create a votive holder from a bookmark cut file.
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.
Finally, I wanted to share that I'm teaching 2 full-day ScanNCut Classes for SewingMachinesPlus.com in December. They're live online classes for DX machines.
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I am a paid spokesperson for the Brother ScanNCut. It is a machine that I love and use. All projects and opinions are my own.
