Larger than Mat Projects

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?

This was a question asked on my Silhouette Secrets+ Facebook group this week and I created a quick YouTube video showing one way you can do this.

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:

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!
