Wall Design Stencil Cutting Machine


A few days ago a reader, Shannu, commented on my Inspiring Stencil Projects that he/she wants stencil cutting machine for wall design purpose.  Features of stencil cutters is really good point to cover, so I thought to answer it here on the blog instead of in a personal email.  Not all stencil cutting machines offer the ability to cut vinyl or larger stencils, but do have a look at this one here, as it allows you to do both smaller craft design as well as larger projects such as wall stencils. 


Stencil Cutting Machine for Wall Design Purposes

One of the stencil cutting machines you could use for wall stencils is this Silhouette Cameo Wall Art Starter Bundle by USCutter.   This Silhouette CAMEO is an electronic cutting tool for personal use and it works much like a home printer, in that 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 12ins wide and 10 feet long. That’s perfect for making larger stencils.

The motor of this machine is nice and quiet. This cutter also has the ability to register and cut printed materials.

The type of projects you  could create with this stencil cutting machine (the Silhouette Cameo), include:

  • Vinyl projects – Cut out intricate designs in vinyl and apply them to your wall, car or almost any project surface.  But also….
  • Scrapbook layouts and cards – Cut titles, background designs, or shapes to embellish any scrapbook page or card.
  • Rhinestone projects – Add some bling to your projects by cutting a template with your Silhouette CAMEO and brushing Silhouette rhinestones into the design making them easy to layout and transfer!
  • Fabric Ink projects – Create a screen printed look by cutting a stencil using the Silhouette CAMEO and applying inks to your fabric projects.
  •  Heat transfer projects – Create custom apparel, accessories, and home décor by cutting out heat transfer material and ironing your designs onto your fabric project.
