Silhouette Tutorial: How to Make Smooth Score Lines and Cut in One Step!

Hi everyone, last week I posted this on Lori Whitlock’s blog and I had to share. In today’s video tutorial, I demonstrate how to make smooth score lines and cut in one step using your Silhouette Cameo.

I used this technique on Lori’s 5 x7 serving tray (# 48179) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store and it turned out perfectly. I love how cute these mini cupcakes look on this tray! To make the toppers, I used the spider from Lori’s Cute Halloween Set . Her set also comes with an adorable pumpkin and ghost. I used washi tape and attached the toppers to a toothpick.

Notice how smooth the score lines are. Please see the video below for detailed directions on how to make smooth score lines.

I have been using this technique on all my Silhouette projects and I love it…no more cut marks!

Hope you enjoyed the video and have a wonderful day!

I have a question. Can you send the cut in just one try or would you need to cut the score lines first and then manually adjust the blade setting for the cut lines?

I watched your video when you initially posted this and made a mental note to refer back to your video when I needed score lines. Well today was the day and it worked perfectly! My first try was with scrap paper to make certain the operator knew what she was doing! LOL!

Thank you for taking the time to put this together, it was a huge help! Thank you!
