Window Cling Photo Frame | Silhouette Window Cling

This week we are using Window Cling for our projects and I wanted to use it for something a little different to sticking onto windows.

I thought it could just as easily be used to decorate a mirror or photo frame and decided to use it on a photo frame.

Preparing The Design

I have a lovely photo of Gracia and Isla (her dog) taken with some pretty flowers behind and wanted an equally pretty frame for it.

I chose a print and cut frame, I deleted the separate cut line.

Tracing The Design: Part 1

I used one of the corners to resize the design to fit my design space and chose the ‘Trace’ from the menu on the right.

From here I selected the trace area and drew a rectangle over the whole of the design.

Tracing The Design: Part 2

I changed the Threshold to 94% and chose the ‘Trace Entire Image’ option.

Tracing The Design: Part 3

This resulted in a cut line being produced on inside and outside the design.

I then used Ctrl x to remove the coloured design.

Next I released the compound path and deleted everything but the outer and inner lines.

Adding An Offset

To finalise my design before cutting I added a 0.05 offset to the cut lines, deleted the cutlines – leaving the offset ones and replaced my coloured design by using Ctrl v.

I resized the design to 7.75 x 5.75, added registration marks to a letter sized design space and sent it to print, then cut it on my Silhouette.

Picture Perfect

Sadly this is my final post as a member of the Silhouette UK Design Team, I have absolutely loved being a member of the team but it is now time to take on a new challenge.

Maybe one day I will make a return but for now, farewell!
