Mason Jar SVG File
Today we’re going to talk a little about creating your own designs for using 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. 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. But the reasons for creating my own are:
- Unique Creations
- Saves money
- Potential to generate income
- Love the challenge of learning how
What do I need for creating my own SVG Files?
You will need to have a vector graphics app that will allow you to create and edit drawings and typography. Then you’ll need to be able to save them in SVG format to use in your cutting machine program.
These are some of my favorite apps.
Inkscape is a great way for creating SVG files, and there are some awesome tutorials out there for using it. The neat thing about Inkscape is that it is a free software.
Adobe Illustrator is not a free software. I love using Illustrator, but unlike Inkscape it is not free. I do find that it is not as sluggish on my computer as Inkscape and it is now my favorite program.
Silhouette Studio Business Edition is another favorite for creating files. I gradually upgraded from Standard Edition, to Designer Edition, and finally to Business Edition. In Business Edition you can import purchased or free SVG files that you find online. You can also create your own SVG files in Silhouette Studio Business Edition.
Swing Design has some of the best prices on upgrades for your Silhouette Studio software. You can check out the Business Edition HERE.
About this Mason Jar SVG File
This file was drawn by me and created from scratch. I think it would be great for handcrafted cards or maybe even a sign.
The file also works with print-and-cut or your Sketch Pens. The little tags below were made with this file. The three on the left were made using Silhouette Sketch Pens. The three on the right are print-and-cut.
I used the offset function to have a little margin around these images.
These images are some of my favorites 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.
The button below will take you to the mason jar file and you will be able to access the SVG, DXF, PNG, and AI files to use in your software program.
I invite you to share the pin for this post on Pinterest. Feel free to use this file for your personal use and projects.
