How To Merge Silhouette Cut and Print Files

Have you ever received printable planner stickers with two sets of files a PRINT file and and CUT file. Typically the print file has the image of the stickers on it. The cut file has a black or dark outline that would look like a silhouette of the image that you’d be cutting out. Now, what on earth do you do with these when that is all that is offered for you?

I’ve provided you a step-by-step guide on how to merge these files together to give you an actual Silhouette file to upload to your Silhouette machine for easy printing and cutting access.

**Please Note** I do not own a Silhouette machine. I am providing instruction the absolute best I can and from what I’ve learned worked. If my images, screenshots, or examples look different from what your program uses or looks like, that is due to the many different natures and versions of the program. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me, comment, or email me. Thank you!
