Glitter HTV Cut Settings: Get the Perfect Silhouette Cut

Glitter HTV is one of those cutting materials that's not listed in the default material list in Silhouette Studio.   You can, of course, add Glitter HTV cut settings as a custom cut setting...if you manage to find the perfect cut settings.  I've cut lots of glitter HTV in my day (a girl's gotta sparkle, right?!) so I thought I'd share the combo I've found that works for getting a perfect cut every.single.time.


With these settings the glitter htv will cut like butter and weed with ease.

Don't forget to cut with the shiny side down.  Cut lines are often tough to see on Glitter HTV so just take your time and you'll soon be as addicted to this stuff as I am!

  1. do you use a mat when you cut your vinyl or just insert the htv?

  2. What do you mean "shiny side," the non-colored side? The htv I have is more like the hologram glitter and both sides are shiny.

  4. Wowza! These REALLY are the perfect settings. Glitter HTV always gave me issues and I just cut a design and peeled off the extra with no issues.

  8. I just used your recommended cut settings and you are right! Cut beautifully and was so easy to weed. Thank you!

  9. One tutorial says to use a cutting mat. This one should specify yes or no on that front, because with a cutting mat, this setting did NOT work! It cut right through the backing. Ruined a good sheet of HTV. Bummer...

  10. I use these settings with a cutting mat and have no problem at all. I use this for Siser and also for the Cricut brand HTV that they sell at Michael's. Thanks for all of your recommendations and tutorials!
