SVG Merge – a Neat Tool To Save Time!

Just a quick post to share a very neat tool that I find is going to save me a lot of time in the future!

If you have not heard about this awesome company called Dreaming Tree, they are a company that has files for paper crafters of all kinds. A lot of 3-D paper crafting projects, but also flat ones as well!

They have lots of FREE files too in case you just want to play and test whether you will like the files or not.

Make sure to scroll down on each file to see the assembly video that they record for every single svg file they create!

Now, the Dreaming Tree website is not the main news I wanted to share, but it is an awesome site and brings me to the neat tool!

When you download Dreaming Tree files, you will notice that the pieces to each file are saved individually and not all in one svg file. This may seem odd at first, but here is why.
This makes the files compatible with many different cutting machines.
In the past, some programs changed the way they opened svg files and when the pieces were saved all as one file, it caused issues. This meant that Dreaming Tree had to redesign every single file to be compatible with those changes for certain programs.
So instead, they now offer each piece as an individual file.
Dreaming Tree has a vast collection of files and some of those can have a lot of pieces.
They are so neat when they are constructed!

This also means that you have to open each piece and then merge them onto one file if you so choose.

Unless you have this neat tool called SVG Merge!

Now, yes – this is a separate purchase, but I totally think it’s worth the cost if you use the Dreaming Tree site!

But, don’t take my word on it, let me show you!

I have 2 new videos out showing how this can help you as a Silhouette user or a Siser Juliet or Romeo cutting machine user.

First, here is the Silhouette Studio video.

Video from the Silhouette Secrets+ YouTube channel

And here is the video showing how it works in Leonardo Design Studio for the Siser Juliet & Romeo cutting machines.

Video from the Swift Creek Customs YouTube channel

As you can see in either video, I was so excited to share!

And I’ll share a couple of the Dreaming Tree files that I recently cut.

Tipsy Turkey Wine Wrapper and I turned it into a card as well.

This is the Father’s Day Crate and a poinsettia from the Poinsettia Planter file.

I have seen so many cool ideas done with this crate on the Dreaming Tree Facebook Group HERE.
There are often times that I may not be jumping to grab the design right away when it’s released, like this Father’s Day Crate, but then I see all the amazing pieces of artwork that other users are creating with it in the group and I HAVE to get it!

I also have all the pieces cut to build myself a snowman, but just need to take the time to do that.
Hopefully soon!

Frosty Gift box file found HERE.

I’ll share more when I have him finished up!

I hope you have a great day and get to be creative!
