| One of the most popular craft projects is the tag, because of its small size and versatility. As a digital designer for the craft industry, you will need a basic tag cut file to use as a starting point for many projects.|
If you take a look at PinterestR and other sharing sites, you will see that crafters are creating little works of tag art in any size and shape. Sometimes there is a hole at the top or side, which needs to be large enough for string, ribbon, aged binding, eyelash twine and more. You will also want to include the basic shape for the hole reinforcer, which can be used as a design element.
The basic tag cut file that we will make in this tutorial will be 5.5 inches high and 3.5 inches wide. This will make it the perfect size to be used with any of the popular 6 x 6 inches decorative paper pads available on the market. The hole will be your traditional .25 inch diameter and the hole reinforcer will be .5 inch diameter with a .25 inch hold. The SilhouetteR Studio Designer Edition software, which I design cut files for most of the time, will recognizes a .1 pt path with the color value #000001 in the SVG file, that we will create for use with the Silhouette Cameo.
