The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

how to cut a ?
« on: April 19, 2011, 12:10:29 PM »
Hiya ,   i have for some time been wanting to buy the quilling cutting dies for my cuttlebug ,  but after looking at the things i need to go along with the dies ie xtra long plates , and dies, it comes to a very tidy sum of money ,  so my partner said you have the robo why not try to design your own ?.

Easier said than done for me (,being new to all this ), would someone try to explain how i need to go about this , or point me in the right direction of a tutorial (would prefer video tut ) that might help me to design some flower plates ?.

I hope you dont mind me asking ?.

Hugs Sue xx

Hi Sue

Someone on a forum somewhere did a similiar tutorial, but I'm sure its just a case of using the alignment and distribution function in Inkscape to achieve the same effect....Be back in a minute.....Try looking at this vid of Carolyn's http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=428.0 and apply to your file again..........If you still require help Holler.....

Butterfly asked the same question a while ago and I posted instructions for her at the time. I cannot find the post at the moment and will try to find it later today. It was like Angela said, use align and distribute. I will try to find time over the Easter break to write a specific tutorial and I will post it in the Projects section.

Thanks once again to the dynamic duo ,  ;)  you are just fantastic .

I did do something like, last night in silhouette studio , using a petal from a flower a thin rectangle and a small square welded them all together in a row , and cut , but the petal was too big and the rectangle was too thin , soi didnt get the petals in the right place so when i quilled them they  all lined up instead of staggering , so it went into the bin .

But i was pleased with myself because i actually designed something and if i had got it right would have looked great . Maybe with a lot of coaching from you i will get something right yet  :oops:  :roll: .

Thanx again Hugs Sue x
