Do you ever sit and look at the cup you are about to make and go "What size decal do I need to cut?" I know I have. So, I have made this little cheat sheet guide that may help answer that questions for you.
With cups (unlike the shirts) the height matters the most. You will not want to go larger or else it may go off the bottom or top!
However, the width can vary. You may want to wrap it around the cup! If you want to do this and do not have a fabric tape measurer, grab a piece of paper, wrap it around the cup, mark or cut it (the paper that is), then use a regular ruler to measure the paper to get circumference around the cup!
Out of all of these the wine glasses are the most tricky. You will want to make sure the design is fairly small. The curves will make it quite difficult to lay flat but the smaller it is the easier it will be.
I can't wait to see all the cups you create using this guide, tag me on instagram @kitaleigh.made or hashtag #kitaleigh, so I can see!
*note: This is only a guide, some cups and designs may need different sizing. measure twice, cut once. :)
With making faux leather earrings being all the rage lately, I thought I would put together a little guide to help determine the size of earring you should cut.
For a common stud, I do about 1/2 an inch. This is the perfect size stud to add a post to and won't look super huge on the ear.
I look at an 1" dangle being a little more classic, perfect for a wedding or gala!
A 2" dangle will reach the jaw line or up or down a tad (really depends on the hardware and person's ear/head size).
3" and 4" really make a statement and are great for those added design styles within (like patterns)!
Remember this is only a guide and each person and earring may be a bit different. This guide is great for the laser cutter, silhouette, and cricut projects!
I have heard the question so many time... "What size do I cut a design for...?" So I decided to make a little cheat sheet sizing guide!
I have found the height of the design does not matter as much as the width, so that is what a focused on.
I hope you enjoy.
(Note: this is only a guide, some designs/shirts may look better with different sizing)
