How you can make paper lace and doilies with your Silhouette
May 07, 2015
I used these fantastic digital lace edge fonts from creationcassel.com with my Silhouette to make these fun doilies and lace. The lace border gave this card an elegant feel.
I bet you are asking why don't I just use a store bought doily? Well, with these fonts I can chose my own design from a large range and without having to buy an entire package of the same design and I can make it any size I want. Also, those store bought doilies are thin and flimsy and with these fonts I can add stitching holes to a nice sturdy piece of cardstock and stitch a border. See this previous post to learn how to add stitching holes.
Store bought doilies and lace are usually white, but with these fonts I can chose any colour I want, like this mint for example :D
Some helpful tips:
*Use upper case versions of the fonts, they will cut easier.
*They take a while to cut, so be patient, it's worth the wait.
*Use the toggle button on your Silhouette to get the design to wrap around a circle to make a doily.
*Some of the designs are more intricate than others so they are a bit harder to cut out, so if you want to use one of these, then make sure you enlarge it.
Now, what are you waiting for? Hurry and grab a set today and get cutting :D
