Running out of time to do all those cute crafts before Valentine’s Day?  Well I have an adorable {FREE PRINTABLE} for you today……. Valentine Bingo Cards!  Haven’t tried print & cut on your Silhouette and running out of time?  No problem!  Today we’re sharing the printables you can cut out yourself and the cut file in case you decide to jump in and get your feet wet.

Valentine BINGO with {FREE} Printable and Cut File by My Paper Craze

I’ve put together a short tutorial on going from your design in Silhouette Studio to cutting it out on your Silhouette cutting machine.  It looks like a lot of steps but it’s actually just a few setting adjustments to make before you cut.  Trust me, once you’ve tried this you’ll be kicking yourself for not doing it long before now!  In the first image my design is centered on my work area and I’m clicking on “open the registration marks window” and then selecting the appropriate “style” for my cutting machine.  The registration marks appear as well as a gray area.  The design cannot touch any part of the gray area so you may have to resize it at this point.  I then clicked on “open the designs page settings window” and checked both “show print border” and “show cut border”.  This step allows you to verify that your design is completely within the boundaries.  In the third image I clicked “open the line style window” and checked “print lines of selected shapes”.

I’m now ready to send my design to my printer.  On the upper left hand tool bar I clicked “send to printer” and as you can see in the second image below, a popup window appeared so that I could specify which printer I wanted to use.  Once my design had printed I placed it on my cutting mat and loaded it into my Silhouette.  I’m now ready to click “send to silhouette” located just to the right of the printer icon.  The window opens on the right side of my screen and here is where I click “adjust cut settings” to let the Silhouette know what type of material I want it to cut.  I also adjust the settings on my blade at this time.  I’m now ready to click “start” and let the machine do it’s magic.

I now have my bingo cards ready to go.  I’m going to laminate them so that we can use them for multiple games with a dry erase marker.  Every time I use this feature I’m just amazed at how the Silhouette can read the registration marks and cut the design perfectly.  Are you ready to give it a try?

For the free printables I made 4 different cards with random numbers.  If you need additional cards I included a file with the blank bingo card that you can fill the numbers in yourself.  You’ll only need to print 1 each of the calling card files.  And last but not least… the Silhouette cut files in V2 and V3!  In case you need them, the fonts I used are TGIFriday, Wonderland,and Cheri.
