Getting The Design
I brought my design onto my mat and used the trace tool to trace the outline.
I saved that to my file so I could then access it in my silhouette Alta software.
I then used the trace by colour tool to trace all the white areas to enable me to get rid of them.
Once I was left only with the black house, I then used the off-set tool and coloured it yellow.
Next, I grouped them together ready to print onto an edible icing sheet.
Printing The Cookie Cutters: P1
I took my deigns of the house, pumpkin and ghost one at a time into my Alta software and printed each one out to make three cookie cutters.
Printing The Cookie Cutters: P2
I did another trace of the pumpkin but only the lines, so I could take it into the Alta software and use the extrusion feature.
Doing this enabled me to emboss them once iced.
Cutting The Edible Icing Sheets
I printed the design onto an edible icing sheet.
I did a 0.50 print blead and I cut it out without a mat using a vinyl setting.
I also included the registration marks so the Silhouette Cameo knew where to cut.
The Finished Cookies
After making the cookies I used a little jam to attach the icing to the cookies.
For the ghost I added some sugar eyes.
For the house I added the cutout house on top of the icing using a little bit of edible glue.
Making The Cake Stand
I bought my design from the Silhouette store and cut all the pieces out.
I then glued them together.
Decoration For The Cake Stand
For the bats and spiders, I used the print and cut feature.
I used wafer paper and cut them out without a mat using the Silhouette Cameo.
I used edible glue to stick them on to some cake wires.
