Here is a quick tutorial on how to do a floating Christmas ornament.
I started with this template for the ornaments. While you only need the image to print on the transparency, I still purchased the svg from Silhouette since I was using the image either way. In the software I had two tabs open at the bottom. One has the ornaments with the images and one has just the ornaments without any images. One is to print, and one is to cut.
First we’ll print: This is how I load the transparency paper. Your printer will obviously vary here.
Click on the tab with the image and click File —-> Print and you should get your printer options.
Next is the tricky part. You want to look at your software with the image (see above) and note a spot (I used the tip of the manger) as a point of reference. Moving the mouse over the silhouette software I saw that it was a little less than 2″ vertically placed and not quite 2″ horizontally placed. I adjusted my transparency paper on my mat to match my screen even though it wasn’t lined up with the edges on the mat. I had to hold my OCD in check for this part. LOL
Switch back to the ornament template with no images. I had to play around with my settings and you should test cut because not all transparency are created equal. Load the cutting mat and send to Silhouette.
Hope you found this helpful. Here is my finished ornament without any ribbons.
