I’m back again with some more tricks of the trade! For anyone interested in new ways to create cut files from scratch, I’ve got a fun new tutorial just for you. Learn how to turn hand drawn illustrations into cut files using a few simple tools in Adobe Illustrator.
The main tools you will be using:
I love seeing people get excited about creating their own cut file designs! What I especially enjoy about this method is being able to come up with really whimsical, organic shapes fairly simply. Like I mentioned in the video, it can be difficult to get shapes like that when using the pen tool, and sometimes it’s faster to just sketch something out. Of course, if you get a little too crazy—creating hairline strokes, or really jagged edges, then you’re cutting machine might throw a fit. I must say, though, I’ve been impressed with how my Cricut has handled some of my more organic designs in the past!
Enjoy my latest tutorial! Hopefully you were able to learn more about how to turn hand drawn illustrations into cut files, and now you’re ready to make some uniquely amazing creations.
