Creating your design

First, download the design: 3D Poinsettia flower into your design space. Ungroup the design and separate the elements based on the colour grouping.

With your design elements visible, change the media size setting in the Page Setup window to Letter size. This will give you the boundary size on the media on the mat so you know where to position the design elements for cutting.

Reducing waste

In the Designer edition, you can use the Nest tool to nest your elements to reduce the amount of waste media when cutting.

Highlight all the design elements you want to nest and make sure you have ‘nest to cut area’ selected before pressing nest. If you want, you can adjust the padding and rotations to give more space or allow it to rotate more times to get a better fit.

Cutting the design

When you’re ready to cut, make sure you select the Leatherette media in the drop down menu for ‘material’. As this media is thicker than average media, make sure you do a test cut as those the software recommends may differ for you depending on how sharp your blade is.

Cut the petals out of the cream leatherette, the leaves out of the black leatherette and the stamen out of the rose gold leatherette.

Assembling the 3D flower

To assemble, adhere the largest petal layer on top of the leaves, using foam pads for dimension. Keep layering the petal layers up, rotating the petals to give variation. Lastly, layer up the stamens and add this to the middle of the flower.
