I have often been asked, "How small can the Silhouette Cameo cut?". I don't cut intricate stuff very much but in today's post, I'm going to show you what is possibly the smallest cut that I have made with my Cameo yet.
I usually lay out the image on the virtual mat before I send it to the Cameo to cut and last week's Coo Coo Ca Choo Clock was no exception. I increased the image to what looked like (to me) a good size and started placing my papers on the mat for cutting. What I did not expect was that there was a very, VERY small layer included in the image.
The tiny layer was for the stamen of the small flowers. When enlarged, this is how the cut looks like.
Since I had already started cutting out the other layers for the clock before I discovered the tiny part, I decided to go ahead and attempt to cut out the teeny stamen. I can't use cardstock for this layer because it is so small and intricate, so I cut it out of vinyl instead.
This is how it turned out:
The size of the cut out is about
I can't even measure the size of the circles! They are the size of a dot!
Not convinced yet? How about this:
It looks like a tiny spider, doesn't it? Yeah, I even freaked out my kiddo with it (heehee!). I cut out several of these "spiders" just to see if the Cameo can make this insanely small cut more than once and it did.
So now we know how small the Cameo can cut. :-)
