Die Cut Patterns and Craft Templates

Enjoy the free printable craft templates, patterns and die cut crafts in this section.

You'll find lots of ideas for making different cut and paste crafts along with creative ideas for using our coloring page line art drawings to design your own unique seasonal crafts and craft patterns.

You can use any of these die cut craft designs with a Cricut or another favorite digital design craft cutting machine. I design these die cut templates to use with my Silhouette Cameo cutter. They can also be cut out by hand with a craft knife or sharp scissors.

For Valentine's Day (would also be nice for Mother's Day or a bridal shower) I designed a 3D heart box for wrapping a small gift of candy, jewelry, IOY love coupons or gift cards.

My Silhouette Cameo cutter is a wonder machine that can cut fabric, stencils for painting or glass etching, magnetic material, interfacing, vinyl decals and wall art lettering, car window stickers, heat transfer materials ... and so much more.

Above: I cut out hundreds of fancy cardstock stars using my cutter to make a party banner for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday.

We had lots of fun punching out the stars and stringing them on a ribbon to make a swag.


Cinco de Mayo Decorations

My FIESTA pennant flags template prints out on two separate sheets, ready to color in digitally or with markers, crayons or paints.

Each sheet contains one letter of the word in a fun south of the border font, ready for your embellishment. There's also a blank version of the pennant template you can use to make a bunting for any occasion. Try it in paper, card stock or felt!

Mini pennant banner flags can be colored in as an activity before or during your fiesta party or you can simply use the outlines as patterns to create a die cut or pattern to design your own unique fabric, felt or paper swag banners for any celebration.

Make designer paper crafts with ease

How to Design Your Own Die Cuts

I love making fabric, cardstock, paper and vinyl die cuts from my own designs almost as much as I enjoy sharing my outlines as cutting files or craft templates and coloring pages.

To design your own die cut crafts from line art or coloring pages, simply choose a category from the many coloring page collections on this site, select a picture, then adapt the drawing to suit your die cut craft project.

You can add color to your artwork by using any basic graphics program or cut out sections from different scrapbook papers and card stocks.
