          Hi Colette!

          Do you have a Silhouette machine? If so, where are you getting stuck? I would be happy to send more detailed instructions if the blog post isn’t enough. If not, you can cut these by hand!

        What are the dimensions of each barrette that you used?ReplyCancel

        I’m curious about the cut settings you used on the Cameo. Did you use a cutting mat, or a special blade? I really want to make some of these for my family!ReplyCancel

        • prettylifegirlsJuly 27, 2020 - 7:59 am

          Hi Amy!

          I used a normal ratchet blade, and Silhouette Studio has shrink plastic in the materials list! But for reference, these are the settings: Blade-6, Force-33, Speed-1, Passes-2. I hope this helps! Send us a picture if you make some!


          • Amy PAugust 10, 2020 - 4:28 pm

            Hi Sam,
            Thanks for answering my question! I have some of the old fashioned Shrinky Dink material, and it is not cutting well, which is a real bummer, but I am hoping to try with the Kraft blade in my carriage 2 on my Cameo 4. I will send pictures if I get it to work, along with the (hopefully) successful cut settings.ReplyCancel
