Here is one of the other types of tags I have done from Ohax Industries with the Chomas Creations engraving tip.
How about a tutorial for lining up these odd shaped pieces like shown above? If you have a tag that is shaped like a rectangle, or easy shape to recreate in Studio, you can skip these steps and go to step 3. This is more for the odd shaped tags you would like to engrave on. So pretend my rectangle is an odd shape, but then you get an idea on how to do this. You could also use this tutorial for drawing with the Cameo as well!
1. First I used a BLACK pen to trace the tags I wanted to use. These are some sample tags I was sent, but there were a lot in the same size, just different colors. This will work for any size.
2. I then scanned my traced paper and opened the image in Silhouette Studio. I used the trace function in Studio. First you click on select trace area (1), then you highlight what you want to trace (2), then click on trace outer edge (3), and finally adjust the high pass filter so your image is all yellow lines.
3. Now because I want to line up my letters on my tag, I need to figure out where they are going to be in my machine. I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a pen to draw my tags on a piece of scrap paper.
4. Now I want to turn off the cut lines for when I am engraving. To do this first click on the image of the scissors (1), then click on your image, in this case the tags (2), and then click on no cut (3).
5. You can add any text or designs you would like to the Silhouette Studio file.
Now add the Chomas Creations engraving tip to the Cameo. Add the tags to your scrap paper with some glue dots, these are easy to scrape off after you engrave. I used a thickness of 33, a speed of 4, and checked double cut.
So now you are probably wondering where I am getting these fonts? Well Kay at Clever Someday has 2 posts on her blog with these engraving fonts. Kay has used as fill fonts, hmmm... going to have to give it a try! The Cameo is a lot quicker then you would think it would be in doig this.
