Here’s a set of numbers that you can mix and match to pretty up some Gift Wrap for any age or anniversary.
Simply choose the numbers you need and drag them into the box or circle, align them nicely and cut them all out. You could use any other decorative shape you have in your library instead of the circle or square.
Before I attached it to my parcel I added a contrast colour to the back and added the center section of the zero to the contrast colour, which gave it added interest.
Here’s a bird’s eye view to explain what I mean:
I folded the numbers up with out using perforations – you can add them before cutting if you’d prefer.
Here’s the Standing Numbers Silhouette Studio File for V3
Here’s The Standing Numbers Silhouette Studio File for Version 2.
Next week I’ll share the alphabet so you can personalize your gifts with a name too.
These are so cool. I was going to ask if you would consider doing an alphabet but I see it’s coming next week. Thank you so much for sharing your talent!
Thanks for stopping by Cheryle – yes, the alphabet is on it’s way!
Thank you Pam, a great idea for an 80th I’m about to ‘play’ with.
Oh lovely Arel. I’d Love to see pics 🙂

30 is too little but I may dream
(i don’t speak so easy english, sorry)
Thanks for stopping by Martine – Ha Ha, I dream of being back at 30 too!
(the files have all the numbers though – not just 30!)

Is there a way to use these cool numbers on my Cricut Explore?
I make these files in the Silhouette Cameo software program which has a file format that cant be exported for other machines.
I’m trying to learn another program that will enable me to export as SVGs but it’s slow going at the moment I’m afraid.
However, You may be able to make similar numbers in you Cricut design space. I simply used A thick font (Franklin Gothic Heavy) and sliced the very bottom off with my open knife tool. I’m not familiar with the Explore but you may have similar tools you can use – Good luck!
Thanks Diamantin. I appreciate you leaving a comment 🙂

Pam, this is so cute! Thank you for the tutorial and free cutting files!
My pleasure Helen, Glad you like them. I’ve just posted up the Alphabet set too! http://www.getsilvered.com/?p=3162
These are fantastic, but I seem to be having a bit of a problem – when I try to select individual numbers I can’t. I can only select all of them.
If anyone could tell me where I am going wrong I would be most grateful:)
Sorry forgot to click the ‘let me know if anyone replies’:)
The numbers are all grouped together, Click the group of numbers so you can see see abox around them, then right click and click “ungroup”, then you should be able to select them individually. (Or use the ungroup icon at the bottom (second) left of the screen)
Hope this helps.
Thank you, I am pretty new to Silhouette, I can see exactly what you mean now.
I struggle a bit with split screen trying to use things, but am getting there
Sandie, the software is a bit of a learning curve, Pleased that you’ve got it sorted now. Enjoy your Silhouette. 🙂
With the help of a good friend and the internet, I am getting there. I am tending to do things I feel like doing rather than learning it from the beginning as I probably should. That said I am having great fun:)
