In the Silhouette Studio software, set your design page to A4, select the quote and resize it to fit the page.


Place a piece of A4 black cardstock onto your cutting mat, so that it co-ordinates with the mat on screen.


Go to Cut Settings > Advanced, and change the tool settings to penholder (instead of blade) and set the line colour so that the software knows to draw the designs.


Follow the step-by-step on page XX to load the penholder, then load the mat and begin.


Once the machine has finished, remove the design and add accents using a white pen. Rub it with talcum powder for an authentic chalkboard look and frame to finish.
