Banner Cut File Shapes- Paper Banner Tutorial – SVG, DXF, PNG

Who needs banner cut files shapes? My sister’s baby shower is one month from today, so I have been creating all sorts of party décor. The theme is pink dinosaurs and she is naming her new little lady Ashland. I currently have a dino banner in the works.

When I first started using my Silhouette Cameo I did not have much luck with card stock. I couldn’t get a clean cut, the mat would be too sticky and rip the paper or my mat would be too old and the paper would slide around.

Banner Cut File FAQs

What can I make with these cut files?

Cut these files onto any medium you prefer. The things you can make with a Cricut or Silhouette are endless. Make mugs, cups, shirts, onesies, tote bags or basically whatever your heart desires. I have put together a list of adhesive and iron-on blanks and 35 ways to use adhesive vinyl to give you more ideas. My Vinyl Direct has a whole bunch of vinyl blanks you will fall in love with.

Where can I buy vinyl?

I buy from a handful of different places to get my hands on new products when they come out. I love Happy Crafters because the girls are always so willing to help and they have quick processing time. Waiting around for items to ship is the worst! I also like to purchase from My Vinyl Directand Expressions Vinyl. Both of these places offer the typical colors and types of vinyls and both have an array of fun prints staying on top of new trends.

Can I sell items I make using Poofy Cheeks cut files?

Card Stock Cutting Tips

I mentioned that I didn’t have much luck with cutting card stock in the past. One of my missions this year was to tackle all sorts of new projects with my cutting machine so the goal was to master cardstock. Here are my tips…

  • Use a Cricut light grip cutting mat (works with Silhouette Cameo and Cricut)
  • Lay the cutting mat on a flat, solid surface and then use your fist to rub the paper with decent pressure onto the mat
  • If the mat is older and dirty you may experience sliding so use a clean mat
  • Cardstock can dull your blade pretty quickly, especially the glitter so keep that in mind
  • Cut with two passes (shown in pink rectangle below)
