Silhouette Cuts

A place to share your ideas and tips on the
Silhouette craft cutting machine

Silhouette SD and Portrait are an 8" cutter and now the Cameo a 12" cutter

A Sil-o-What? What is this thing? What does it do?

The Silhouette is a digital cutting tool for personal use.

Similar to the functioning of a home printer, it cuts paper and other materials

like vinyl with a blade instead of printing onto it.

Great for crafting, scrapbooking, vinyl work like wall art or words, car decals, etc!
