Pin It

The Silhouette Portrait is a brand new personal craft cutter from Silhouette with an 8-inch cutting mat. It’s small in size, small on price (Yay!), and BIG on features! The Silhouette Portrait is a personal electronic cutting tool. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 8 inches wide and 10 feet long.

What I’ve always loved about the Silhouette compared to other craft cutters is that with the Silhouette, you can cut ANY font on your computer — no extra charge! There’s no need to buy countless alphabets or cartridges. With the Silhouette, you have a whole arsenal of fonts that you can start cutting right away, right on your computer. You can also create your own designs with the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, or purchase individual designs from the extensive Silhouette Online Store. You don’t have to buy a whole cartridge for just one design! Most designs in the Silhouette Online Store are 99¢ or less. Plus there’s a new free shape each week that can be downloaded and kept permanently in your Silhouette Studio library.

The Silhouette Portrait weighs only 3.5 pounds, making it easily portable. The Portrait can be easily carried wherever you go!

 

There are so many fun things you can make with the Silhouette!

Have you seen these adorable aprons that Ashley from Make It and Love It made using the Silhouette, heat transfer material, and the Our Best Bite’s doodle font?

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

You can also cut vinyl for wall words & home decor projects…

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

You can etch glass for seriously fun, one of a kind serving dishes…

Use your Silhouette to cut fabric. Just iron Silhouette interfacing to your favorite fabric and send it through the machine on a Silhouette cutting mat.

With Silhouette sketch pens, the Silhouette can draw intricate patterns. Just pop out the blade and insert the color pen of your choice — even white and glitter pens! How awesome would this be for Christmas card envelopes with a gorgeous handwritten font?? :)

Silhouette Craft Cutter Giveaway

You can even make fake tattoos. Fun!

From magnet paper to temporary tattoo paper, wood paper to transparencies, the Silhouette can cut a wide variety of specialty media.

 

And be sure to check out Silhouette on Facebook and Pinterest for more great ideas!

 

How to Enter

To be entered to win a Silhouette Portrait all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. What’s the first thing you’d make with a Silhouette Portrait?

Contest ends Thursday, November 22 at 8 am CST. That’s Thanksgiving day! One entry per person, please. Winner must have a US mailing address. Winner will be chosen at random and notified by email. Giveaway graciously provided by Silhouette America.

If you’re on Facebook, come check us out here! :)
