I’ve shown how to make a scalloped square shape over here but today’s tutorial uses a different technique and can be used on other simple shapes too.
This method does require the Designer’s Edition of the software, and we are using the Rhinestone Tools which are exclusive to that.
- Draw or import a simple shape in Silhouette Studio Designer’s Edition. I’m using an oval shape.
- Select the shape > Copy and paste > put one copy aside while working on the other.
- Open the Rhinestone Window >Select the shape and in the window check “Edge” & “20ss”
- Scroll down and check the “Release Rhinestone” option
- The circles will be separated in to individual bounding boxes, so ensure that all the circles are selected, > Right Click, select “Group” > Right Click again, select “Convert to Path” .
- Then select both the grouped circles and the Duplicate Shape and go to the Alignment Window > Select “Centre”
- With both the plain shape and the Rhinestone shape selected > Right Click and Weld.
- Admire your scalloped shape creation….
Feeling a bit more adventurous? Then have fun experimenting.
- Optional – When you have completed step 4 but before Step 5, have a play with the spacing bar. Experiment spacing the Rhinestone Circles out, by sliding the Spacing Bar in the Window.
- In the Scalloped Square post there are instruction to make the new scalloped shape into a Frame Or A Border. These techniques would also work with the shape you have created here if you want to try it out.
- If you’d like a more subtle scalloped shape. Select and offset, experiment with the amount of offset until you get the subtlety you like.
- Other shapes look good too. Try Hearts, Stars, Hexagons. Here’s some I did to give you an idea.
