This is an extra special kit - it includes SVG files so that you can print and cut on your personal cutting machine! But not to worry if you don't have a cutting machine! I have also included a PDF file so you can easily cut these out the old fashioned way with scissors :)
We had a lot of fun trying on the glasses - even our dog Maggie got in on it too. I plan to take them to Karaoke this weekend and play a little dress up. And don't you think they would be perfect for a Mad Men party too!? oh the possibilities!
I've been working behind the scenes here for a little while on this project. It took me a long time to figure out just how to set up my images so they could be print and cut, the usual auto-trace features and other methods I found with google just didn't work with my files... so it took a bit of tinkering... and I am so thrilled that I finally got it working just right!
SETTING UP THE SVG FILES:
There's a couple of little set up tweaks you'll want to make when opening and using these SVGs, and it might be a little different from other SVGs that you've used before, so I've created a handy video for you:
I'm using the Silhouette Designer Edition software which is the upgraded version of the Silhouette software, it will open SVGs (and do lots of other things too) where as the regular edition that comes with the machine doesn't. It's not an expensive upgrade and it's so worth it because then you can use files created by many other fabulous designers who make SVG files too!
CAN I ASK FOR YOUR HELP?
If you have another type of electronic cutting machine (eClips, Scan N Cut, Cricut etc etc), I'd so appreciate a favor! If you could watch the video above to see how I set up my files, download the free Retro Eyeglasses kit, and then let me know if it also works for you with your machine..... I'd be forever grateful! I'd love to also hear what software you are using and any other details you'd like to share.
If all goes well I'll be adding SVG cutting file kits in my shop! Imagine how many more retro ovens cupcake boxes you could make if you didn't have to cut them by hand! I can't wait!

Are there any decent electronic machines that easily accept your own designs into them?
For instance, if I want to make my own design of stencil but have the machine cut it, what machine can do that with the least fuss?
I already know that the Cricut will only do their designs....
Glasses downloaded. Love them! THANK YOU!!!!!
Any help would be great, before spending a lot of moola on something and then still cut by hand. lol
i really like using the Silhouette! I was terrified of using it and it sat in the box for MONTHS because i thought it would be so difficult to learn to use. Well i wish I had just plugged it in earlier because i was up and running in no time :)
