Sweet, Step-by-step Personalized Jewelry Boxes
Below is a video showing each of the steps, but here’s the how-to, along with a few tips.
- Begin a new project in Silhouette Studio.
- Drag the image into the project grid window in Silhouette Studio.
- Resize if needed to fit within the grid and to the correct size of your box. You can use the cutting mat as a ruler.
- In the top right of the window, select the Trace icon (it looks a bit like a butterfly).
- Select “Select Trace Area” and select the area around the hand lettered art.
- Adjust the high and low pass filters until the design is filled yellow.
- Select “Trace.”
- Be sure to Mirror the Image for HTV!
- Click “SEND” in the top right corner and select Heat Transfer Vinyl.
- Place HTV shiny side down in Silhouette and adjust cutting depth to match cut setting.
- Remove vinyl from Silhouette and remove excess vinyl from design.
- Place face down on the box and apply heat with iron. If iron sticks, use an old tshirt as a layer between the iron and HTV.
- Slowly remove plastic backing from design. If HTV sticks to backing at all, replace down on the box and apply more heat for 10 seconds and try again. Do not force it or the HTV will stretch and warp.
