I don't even know what else to call this...so I'm calling it cutting a word out of a shape in Silhouette Studio. I posted a picture of a quick and easily baby onesie I made for a friend (so don't yell at me for already posting St. Patty's day crafts...it's her fault) and you all went crazy...so I thought I'd share a really easy tutorial on how to make one yourself. This is seriously like a 5 minute project...so you got this!
In Silhouette Studio, find your shape and type out your word.
Select the text and then click on the 'offset' tool.
Pick "offset" and decide on a distance. I went with .100, but it's really up to personal preference!
Keep the original text, you'll need it.
Select both the offset and the image and from the modify window click "Subtract."
Immediately group all of those little pieces so they don't move out of position. (Right click > group)
If you need to resize the designs, be sure to select them both at the same time and resize so they stay in proportion.
To cut on heat transfer vinyl, mirror your images and cut the two pieces out.
If you cut on glitter heat transfer vinyl (I get mine from Expressions Vinyl), as I did, it's best to put it down second and adhere the smooth htv design first. That tiny bit of 'height' on the glitter htv can prevent smooth htv designs from fully adhering to the shirt.
I told you this was a quick and O'Easy project!
