This Stars and Stripes cut file will take your holiday decorations to the next level. Use it on anything from signs to tumblers to shirts.
Can it really almost be summer holiday season? I don’t know about you but I feel like the time between Easter and Memorial Day goes by sooo quick. Maybe it’s because we are crazy busy with all the end of the year school activities but all of a sudden bathing suit and barbeque season is here and I’m wondering what the heck happened to Christmas. Summer is coming whether you are ready for it or not and I am definitely ready for it. Ready for the warm weather, the summer food and the celebrations. Today I’m sharing my newest holiday cut file with you. It’s my Stars and Stripes cut file and it’s perfect for your Memorial Day or July 4th decor.
HOW TO USE THE STARS AND STRIPES CUT FILE
If you are not familiar with cut files, you may want to first read this post about how to use SVG files. SVG stands for scalable vector graphic and it is the format that most cut files come in. In addition to SVG format, I’m also offering the cut file as a DXF, and PNG. DXF files can be used with Silhouette Basic Edition software and PNG files are for use in either Illustrator, Photoshop, Canva or any other program that supports PNG files.
