(Most of the designs come in multiple formats but remember that you’ll need Designer Edition or above to use an SVG in Silhouette Studio!)
This 4th of July Subway Art from Main Road Digital Creations comes in several formats, including DXF which can be used with the Standard (free) edition of Silhouette Studio, SVG for Designer Edition and up (or other brands of cutting machines), and PNG for printable projects including sublimation.
Layer this flip flop design from Printable Cuttable Creatables “as-is” using multiple colors of HTV or alter the design and use some Sparkleberry patriotic HTV in the patterned areas. Be sure to check out the PDF instructions that come with the file to see the different variations.
Don’t you just love these patriotic table decorations from Daily Dose of DIY??? The glitter cardstock gives them an extra special touch and lots of sparkle! (Download hint – once you enter the Resource Library, the freebies are in alphabetical order under SVG Files. This one is listed as DIY Patriotic Decor.)
Whether you’re adding a bit of jazz to your patriotic attire or creating a Captain America vibe, these faux leather earrings are fun to make! You’ll find a full tutorial – and the free cut file – here.
Who says freebies are just for digital cutters? I know lots of Silhouette crafters who also have embroidery machines and I didn’t want to leave you out! This USA Flag Flip Flops design from Apex Embroidery would look great on a bag or as a chest logo on a t-shirt.
Oh My Stars & Fireworks SVG Files
To use this file with your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait:
1. Open the SVG in Silhouette Studio.
3. Delete the horizontal cut line from each of the large colored rectangles (these are score lines designed for the Cricut machine). After the pieces are cut, you will fold them by hand.
4. Group all parts of each color group back together (i.e. select all parts of the blue section and group, then repeat for the red section and the white section.
5. Cut each of the color groups from coordinating paper or cardstock and cut the light grey rectangles from vellum.
