How to make layered carstock projects with a Silhouette

  1. The First step is to upload the SVG of the layered cut file you are using to Silhouette Studio. I will link the designer I used below. Her designs are absolute genius. You will love them. Once you have your design on your workspace, select all of them, and center. Now, with your layers all centered, enter the size, either into the height , or the width, that you would like the finished project to be. You can pull your layers apart now, and play with the colors, until you have the layers the colors you would like to cut them.

  2. Cut your layers in the corosponding colors of cardstock (I like 65lb recollections brand from Michaels. It cuts well, comes in a ton of colors, and is inexpensive).

  3. Remove your layers from your mat. Slow and steady, Kind of lightly bend the mat, so the cardstock pops up, then slowly peel the cardstock up (try not to use a right angle, the more you bend the cardstock while you are removing it, the more it will curl. Slow and steady wins the race.

(Pro tip- To remove cardstock bits from your mat, use an old credit card, or a stiff ruler, and scrap it right off. Super easy.)

  1. Once you have all of your layers cut, Start with your top layer, and flip it over, so the bottom is up. Take small pieces of Glue dots (I like Zots brand), roll them into little balls and place them strategically on the layer.

  2. Flip that layer right side up, and adhere it to the layer below. I like to press around and make sure it is well adhered.

  3. Flip upside down, and repeat with glue dot pieces on the underside of this layer.

  4. Flip right side up, and again, smooth down the layer to make sure it is properly adhered.

  5. Repeat until all layers are adhered.

It seems like I never found glue dots here :sweat_smile:

I use Zots brand. If you are US based, try Amazon :slight_smile:

I see :frowning: Mounting tape in an alternative if you are able to source that instead :slight_smile:

Oh yeah! Just thought of it
People here sometimes use rice for glue :joy:

That would be an interesting substitute. If you try it, I would be interested to hear your results.
