Free Light Switch Skin Template (Silhouette Studio File Download)

Ain't no body got time for boring light switch overs! Am I right? If you want to give your light switch covers a makeover by adding a vinyl skin I'm sharing a free download!

Here's the thing philosophy with Silhouette School has always been to 'teach a woman to fish' so I really want to give you an understanding of how to create custom templates like this!

The secret is the Silhouette Pixscan mat. I put together a quick video for you so you can gain a basic understanding of how to make templates.

I've used the same process to create templates for my Silhouette CAMEO touch screens, a vinyl skin for my Silhouette Mint (I'll be sharing the cut file next week on the blog)), and even a fabric cover for my Mint!!

The more you play with this process, the easier it will become! I thought I'd give you a head start by offering the light switch template as a free Silhouette Studio file download.  So go on over and grab it - but please remember not to resize it or it won't fit. Also if you want to share - we'd love that - just please share a link back to this post not to the file itself or the Dropbox.
