How To Create Monthly Square Boxes For The Happy Planner Using A Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine

Hi all of my planner girls! Today I am bringing you a tutorial on how to create stickers for your planners using your Silhouette Cameo machine. I found a cute free digital paper collection from The Girl Creative that is perfect for my March planner printable!

How to create your stickers:
Download images from the Silhouette Design Store or any free digital paper or images you like. Open your Silhouette software and create a new 8.5x11 file.
Insert your registration lines!
Click on file then open and click on the image you want to bring into the file.
Once the file is on the page, size it down to the size you want your sticker to be by dragging the corner of the image.
Next click on the trace link on the top right of the software and click on select trace area. Drag a box the size of the image you want to trace. Next uncheck the high pass filter and drag the arrow on the threshhold until the box is filled like shown below. Then click on trace outer edge.
You will need to adjust the size of the red box to fit the image you want to cut out. Once it fits, drag a box around the two images and group them together. 
keep doing the same thing for all of the different types of images you want to add to your file.

Once you have all of the images ready to go, save the file! Then you can print and cut your file and add your cute stickers to your planner :) Whoo hoo!
Let's be friends!

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks! envelope making machine
