Today I'm sharing seven other Silhouette project ideas using vertical designs from drinkware to leg ware! 

You can get more out of your Silhouette cut files by using them in unexpected ways. Just because a Silhouette design you downloaded or purchased from So Fontsy was billed as a vertical sign designs or shown on a welcome sign mockup doesn't mean you can't use it in a totally different way! 

Of course you likely don't want to put "Welcome to our Home" down your sleeve, there are many vertical designs that would be work for other long vertical surfaces.  Here are 7 ideas for how to use vertical SVG designs

Cutting Boards

Vertical wood paddle cutting boards with vinyl make awesome holiday and home decor.  They're super easy and fast to make!

You can find wood cutting boards with handles in all different shapes and sizes which makes them a great surface for many different vertical SVG designs.

Take the knee and elbow patch to the next level and add a full sleeve or pant leg design with HTV.

I love this idea specifically for kids and especially around celebrations and holidays! I mean how cute is this vertical XOXO cut file down a sleeve or leggings?

With their long skinny orientation, wine bags are the perfect substrate to use for vertical SVG designs..and who doesn't love the gift of wine for ANY occasion?

Skinny Tumblers

Sublimation and vinyl on skinny tumblers isn't going away anytime soon.  Want more than a center design but not a full wrap? Look how cute a vertical top to bottom design (or even better one of the same on each side) looks. I love how cute this hocus pocus design looks on a tumbler
