Silhouette Debut in the MakerSpace

Gradually, we have been adding components to the Mepham MakerSpace. Our newest addition is the Silhouette CAMEO®, which is an electronic cutting machine. It is plugged into one of our computers via USB. It uses a small blade to cut paper, card stock, vinyl, fabric, and other material up to 12 inches wide and 10 feet long.

The Silhouette CAMEO® bundle that we have contains the following:

  • 12-inch cutting mat
  • Cutting blade
  • Spatula
  • Hook
  • Scraper
  • Black & White Sketch Pens
  • Cross cutter
What types of projects can I do using the Silhouette CAMEO®? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. But here are a few that we think you may like:
  • Bookmarks
  • Campaign pins (for class officer elections and the PIG Presidential Election) 
  • Posters and flyers for various club and sporting events
  • 3D prototypes (Introduction to Science Research)
  • Vinyl decals 
  • Stickers
  • Labels
  • Stencils
  • Bulletin boards
  • Tickets 
Have an idea? Come see Ms. Stack in the library to bring your idea to life.
