Papercut Template Design
I haven’t designed a papercut template design for a while, so really enjoyed creating this one.
I joined a little group of fellow creatives last summer. We have a monthly prompt to design a print or cut file for scrapbooking or crafting.
We’ve had some lovely themes already — America (where I created a star-spangled banner heart). And all things ‘farm’, where I designed a counting sheep decal. Plus the ‘space’ prompt where I created a free space SVG.
But most of the things I’ve designed so far have been more for vinyl crafting, rather than paper.
So this month, I’m getting back to my papercutting roots! and have designed a papercut template design that you can cut out and frame. Or print and make a Valentine’s card with — or whatever else takes your fancy.
Free Valentine SVG For Crafting and Design Projects
If you’ve been on the hunt for a Valentine SVG or PNG file for your craft and design projects, this might be just the kind of thing you were looking for. And — best of all — it’s free to download!
There are so many uses for design. And although I created it as papercut template, it can be used in lots of other ways.
What Can You Use the Papercut Template For?
There are so many uses for this free papercut template. You can use the SVG or the PNG file. Personally, I prefer the PNG file as the background is transparent, and you can print it or just upload it to Cricut.
Here are a couple of ideas:
You can print it out and pop it in a frame. You wouldn’t even need to use the design as a papercut and it would still look really striking.
Or you could turn the free Valentine SVG into a sweet card. Not just for Valentine’s Day either — this design could work really well as a birthday or Mother’s Day card.
How To Use Your Free Valentine SVG and PNG Papercut Template
Simply print out the PNG file and crop it to your desired size with scissors or a trimmer, then pop the printout into a frame. Or print on card or stiff paper for a lovely greetings card, as shown in the image above.
Or, if you’re lucky enough to have a Cricut or Silhouette Cameo cutting machine, you can use these to cut the file.
If you’re using a Cricut machine, you can upload either the SVG or PNG file to Cricut Design Space, add to canvas, then resize the image to suit your project.
The PNG file is on a transparent background, so — if you want to create a papercut (as I have done here) it’s literally as easy as resizing to suit then, using the cut function to cut it out.
I had a little Kiko frame that I wanted to create a papercut for. The only trouble was, it ended up being a really tiny cut that just fit in the palm of my hand!
The Cricut made an easy job of cutting it out, but weeding it took me ages!
I’d suggest fitting the papercut template to A4, to make life easier for yourself! Some of the cuts ended up being so tiny at the size I created mine that it really did take ages!
That said, once I’d popped it in my frame I was so pleased with it.
I wanted it to sit in the centre of the frame but — with hindsight — I could have made it double the size. It would have still worked. And I could have saved myself all that tiny weeding!
