In this article I'll use the Brother ScanNCut machine. If you haven't seen this machine before, you can view it here and see some of her best features.

After watching the tutorial of this amazing slicer, I'm sure you'll wonder how you ever did without the ScanNCut.

You can scan an image into the machine, whether it's an image you've drawn or an image you already have.

After scanning, you can have the machine cut out this image from paper, cardboard or MDF of your choice.

You can also crop images already saved in the machine.

It also has the added ability to draw on the paper with the included pens, whether it's an image you've scanned in or one of the graphics or lettering already pre-installed on the device.

This machine offers many possibilities and is a major breakthrough in the life of a hobbyist.

In addition to the already installed images, there is also the possibility to put more images on the machine via a USB stick.

These files are called SVG files and there are many available on the internet.

Today we will create a word by selecting the individual letters and then sticking the letters together so that they can be cut out as one piece to use in your project.

This saves time as the entire word is cut out in one go and gives your piece a more professional look.

For this tutorial on how to paste letters, I'm using the Brother ScanNCut CM300, but you can also use the CM350, or any other cutting machine with a digital screen, as the principle is the same.
