Mason Jar SVG File
Today we’re going to talk about creating your own designs in Silhouette Studio. I came up with this cute mason jar file and I hope you’ll like it and want to use it with your own crafts.
I love how this one turned out. Mason Jar crafts are very popular, so I thought that making a mason jar image would be a great way to add to my crafting adventures. while learning how to create them.
Why make your own files?
I think the biggest reason that I started creating my own files is because I wanted unique designs. There are lots of great designers out there and I love buying some of their beautiful products. However, it can get kinda pricey to do that.
In addition to cost is just the fact that if lots of people buy the same designs, then everything looks like it was purchased from the big box store. I wanted something of my own.
Ink Scape for Creating SVG Files
Inkscape is a great way for creating SVG files, and there are some awesome tutorials out there for using it. Most of all it’s great, because it’s free and can be used as an alternative to Adobe Illustrator.
This file was drawn by me and created from scratch. I think it would be great for handcrafted cards or maybe even a sign. It certainly works! I cut these little tags out on my Silhouette Cameo.
The file also works with print-and-cut or Your Sketch Pens.
I used the offset function to cut around these images. The one on the left was made using the file along with a blue sketch pen in the Silhouette Cameo. The one on the right was made using print and cut.
I love these little images and I think they would work well paired with some of your flower stamps or maybe you would like to use them for marking craft fair items. Making some small labels with sticker paper would also be fun.
