Creating a Larger Than Mat Project in Silhouette Studio
Have you ever wanted to create a larger than mat project?
How do you cut apart an image that is larger than you can print or larger than you can cut on your Silhouette machine mat?
I used a random photo from one of my recent projects I’ve been working on, but you can do this with any image. A jpeg or png file will be the easiest to work with since it’s a flattened graphics and consists of 1 layer. You could still work with a svg file, but it may require a bit more playing with it, since it’s made up of pieces.
Check out the File Types for Silhouette tutorial HERE for more information on file types.
Here are a few of the resources I posted in the video description to help with future projects:
– New! Print and Cut Tutorial Video HERE
– Silhouette Guides and Rulers HERE
– Knife Tool Tutorial HERE
– Knife Thickness Tutorial HERE
– Print & Cut written Tutorial HERE

Have you made a larger than mat project?
I used it when I cut the black backing for this large reindeer gnome.
Check out the post on Getting More Out of your Silhouette Designs HERE where I first showed the large reindeer gnome.
Pop over to the new YouTube video tutorial HERE and then get to creating!
I would love to see what you are creating with your Silhouette software or machines!
