*I chose this color since it goes well with the bags that I am going to customize, but you can replace it with the color that best matches your bags.
Arrange the Trick-or-Treat Bags Design in Silhouette Studio
Step 1: Upload the design template
Download the design files to a folder on your PC, then open the Silhouette Studio software and click the “File” button in the top panel, then click “Open.”
In the dialog box, locate the folder in which you stored the designs and double-click the files to open them in the Silhouette design software.
Step 2: Arrange the Design for Its Cut
In the central section of the design area, you will find the elements ready to be ungrouped and cut.
Step 1: Select the elements, materials, tools, and cutting settings for each element.
Click the “Send” button in the upper right section of the menu and set the cutting options.
Note: I recommend you activate the “Line Segment Overcut”.
To cut these elements you must select the black EVA foam and put it on the cutting mat, load the mat into the machine with the added material.
Insert the 3mm Kraft Blade into the carriage 2 of the machine.
Click on the “Send” option in the lower section of the cut menu.
I am so excited to decorate these trick or treat bags for my son and his friends!
Step 1: Using Glue
Glue the cut EVA foam elements onto the bags using high-quality glue.
Do it as symmetrically as possible, help yourself with a ruler.
They are beautiful!
Congratulations, your Halloween Trick or Treat Bags are ready!
