In October 2019 I released a cover cut file for the Silhouette Cameo 4. This is a cut file that can be used to cut out of adhesive vinyl and then applied to the Silhouette machine cover to customize it how you like.
I’ve updated the cover cut files and created a couple others that you will find below.

Silhouette Cameo 4 Plus – 15″ model – in progress
Note: this file is for models that say “Cameo Pro” at the top.
For international machines that say “Silhouette Cameo Pro” the cutout for the top middle panel will need to be extended. I will update the file when I get measurements.
Note: You will notice that I have not fully committed here to adding vinyl to my Pro machine. I am just not sure what I want to add to it. I did cut and test the file for all the pieces and then used Scotch tape to add it to the front of the machine to verify and test. This is also a great way to help in placing it on the machine and getting it exactly where you want it before you commit permanently to peeling that backing off the adhesive vinyl. When you are ready, lift one side, peel the backing off and cut about halfway down. Smooth the vinyl down on one side and then lift the next side and peel the backing. This hinge method can save you some headache of getting it on straight the first time. I did cut with scissors around the edges of the decal pieces to line it up better.
Note for International users outside of the U.S. & Canada: due to regulations in your countries, the Silhouette logo on the front of the Cameo 4 model machines may be different. Regulations require it to say Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Cameo Plus, or Silhouette Cameo Pro versus just Cameo, Cameo Plus, or Cameo Pro. This does change the measurement of the inside rectangle of the top panel where it is backlit on the machine. The Cameo 4 – 12″ model file does contain the alternate panel and I am working on getting measurements and creating the alternates for the Cameo Plus and Pro models.
Silhouette Portrait – I do not have a cut file for this as the Portrait has quite a curve to the front of it and it is more difficult to get a vinyl to wrap with no wrinkles on this surface area.
Personally, unless you are very experienced with curved vinyl wraps, I would cut a design decal and apply it to your Portrait. But, the only way to know is to practice it.

If you do create a cover for your Silhouette machine, please share on a photo of the finished project on my Facebook group.

We love seeing the different selections of vinyl used to customize the cover.
As always, please understand that I have measured and created these files for personal use only. If you do share, please direct Silhouette user’s to this blog post to download the file direct.
And thank you for sharing!
