Free Cut File | Daffodils

Hello UKSA fans!  Today we have a free cut file for you...

It has been designed by our very own Emma aka Polly's Papercrafts.  Below I have two examples cut, one roughly 16cm tall on plain white and one roughly 22cm tall.  The larger one was cut on white and coloured with spray inks.

Here is a quick run through of downloading the image and turning it in to a cut in Silhouette Studio...

To use this cut file you will need to click on the black and white image to maximise it.  Right click and 'save image as' and give it a name you will remember.  Open up your Silhouette Studio and a blank page.  Drag and drop the image from where it is saved to Silhouette Studio.  Resize if desired, and trace.  If you get unwanted pieces traced right click and release the compound path.  Then select the individual pieces to delete.  Reselect the daffodil and all of its small pieces, right click and make compound path.  Now you can move it around as one piece.  Resize and place on the page where you want it to cut, set the correct settings for your cardstock and cut.

As with all cut files with delicate features the smaller you cut the trickier it will be to get off the cutting mat.  My 16cm cut was clean and easy enough to remove from the mat.

For all those of you who do not have cutting machines, it can be used as a template either for stitching or paper piecing.

If you use it (and we hope you will!) please tag #uksacutfiles when sharing so we can see your creations!

I want to say a huge thank you to all of you have supported UKSA, liked or commented on a post or sent us well wishes.  I'm not sure what I expected when I started this crazy journey, but the response and support has been wonderful!
