I first saw them on a YouTube video, and instantly knew that I wanted them. The downside was that they were metal dies intended to go through your die cut machine. I scoured the internet for them. The problem was most of them were about $25, and it was only one shape in a few sizes. I was a little bummed until I remembered that I could do them myself any shape, any size with my Make The Cut software!
They are super simple to do. Open MTC and open the basic shapes menu
Add the stitches! Select the INNER shape and right click. Select the Change Color/Texture/Line Menu, and then, choose Select Line.
Select the Create New Line Style. This option will allow you to choose how long your stitches are and how far apart they are cut.
Ta-da! You now have 2 circles. One with the dashed line to represent your stitches. One with a solid line to cut your shape free from the cardstock.
Here is an example of a one that I cut recently. I also did the same thing for the card in my last post. I wish the camera could pick up the cut lines in more detail.
Next time I cut these, I'll make the spacing a little further apart. The process is really easy. I hope that you'll give it a try!
