Print and Cut Hippo!

Good Morning!  Today I am going to walk you through the Print and Cut Hippo!
This cutie-patootie comes all colored up and has two layers that you can pop up to give her more life!  She can be sized to fit your needs and is perfect for so many projects! 

Once you have the file in your software, click on the "Page Tool Window", it is the fourth icon from the right on the top bar.  Select the paper size you will be printing on.  I changed mine to Letter to print on 8-1/2" x 11.  

Next click on the "Registration Window" icon (second from right) and click the "Show Reg Marks" box.  Position your cuts within the registration mark areas.

Click on the Send to Silhouette Icon (sixth icon from the left) then click the link to print.

Follow the instruction on the screen...

Align your paper on your mat matching how it is displayed on your computer (make sure the arrow is pointing up when placing your paper).  

Load your paper then click on the Detect Automatically link and your machine will scan for the registration marks.

Once it has found the markings…it will say: 
 Click Cut.
Remove your pieces from your mat.

Place foam on the back of the nose and skirt pieces.

Adhere the pieces on the main image.
Super easy, right!?
Now she is ready to be placed on your project!
