Spring Bouquet Leaf Tutorial


Today I'm going to do a quick tutorial to show you how I altered a cut file from the Silhouette online store to make it work on my project. 

I started out with the cut file named Hero Arts solid leaf.

Then I clicked the "mirror image below" option.  Using the knife tool, I cut the mirror images apart from each other and moved the lower part down a bit.  Then using the line tool, I just drew straight lines to connect the two pieces together again.  I'm sorry I didn't get pics of these steps, but doing this tutorial was kind of an after thought!  I'll do another one next time I alter something.

After it was all cut, I just folded the leaves in half and wrapped them around the branches.  It was the only way I could figure out how to get them to stay on there!

So that's it, pretty simple with the Silhouette!
