This is what you need to know about your Blade Holder!!!

Blade holder settings scanncut
Blade holder scanncut

Have you ever struggled with the blade holder settings on your ScanNCut machine? It can be frustrating to constantly hear that the settings are variable, especially when you’re trying to cut a specific material.

The problem is caused by the fact that the settings are simply determined by two stickers, which are not placed in exactly the same spot on each holder. This means that every time you switch to a new holder, or even if you have multiple holders for different materials like I do, the settings will be different.

But don’t worry, there is a simple solution to this problem. I’ve made a short video to show you exactly what I mean, rather than trying to explain it through writing and leaving things open to interpretation. Check it out and see how easy it is to get consistent blade holder settings on your ScanNCut machine.

Winter lantern

Paper winter lantern

What do you need

Cardstock paper

Double adhesive tape or glue

Gel pens if you want to use the draw funtion with your cut machine

Scanncut ( universal holder), Silhouette of cricut

A little light on batteries for inside the lantern

The lantern is made in 2 parts the bottom (everything that is black on the picture) and the top ( which you can remove to put a light in/ all the white parts)

We will start with the bottom

Put the adhesive tape like in the picture and stick the long sides together. Stick the 4 short sides to the black square. Now the bottom is finished.

Lets make the top now

Put the double adhesive tape on the white parts like the picture.
Stick the corners on the inside border.

Now you have the top. Now put the tape on the white snow parts. Stick those around the top border. Now you only have to put te white square on top. Now your lantern is ready to decorate.

The tree is drawn with the draw function on the brother scanncut. I used glitter gel pens.

The tree can be put on the corner of the lantern or at the side. The winter flower you put to gether by size and you can put it on top.

You can add your own decorations if you like of course.

I would love to see your creations of this lantern so if you post it tag wiccatdesigns or mail me a picture and i wil post it on my page.

Spiral Picture with vinyl or HTV

Spiral Pictures who hasnt seen them.

It looks kinda tricky but it isnt as hard as it seems.

It al starts with a cute an perfect picture

Spiral Betty is the website everyone uses to get their pictures turned into a spiral. Unfortunately you can only download a jpg file so you need to do some tracing.

You can adjust your spiral on 4 levels, how many spirals you want, you can crop your picture, you can make your picture lighter and darker and give it more or less contrast.

When you have adjust your picture you can download the jpg.

You can trace the jpg in Scal, inkscape, design space, illustrator and other programs that can trace images and turn them in to svg files.

For the scan n cut users i advice to put your file into fcm because that extenstion loads way faster then svg in the machine.

In this tutorial i used inkscape but i prefer SCAL that is my design program i always use.
