Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
I have some EXCITING news! Silhouette has just released a new cutting machine, the new Silhouette Portrait® 3! I will be receiving one soon for an unboxing post and go more into detail there about the machine. But I can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about. I wanted to announce in this post that its available now to order and some of the great promotions Silhouette has going on right now.
This is a perfect cutting machine if your on the go or don’t have enough room in your crafting space for a large Silhouette Cameo.
Here’s some info from the Silhouette Store about the new machine:
The Portrait is a compact machine that allows you to create DIY projects with incredible precision. From cutting labels, to creating custom stickers, the Silhouette Portrait is a tool that every maker should have. With its light weight, the Portrait 3 is also the perfect machine to take to events, craft parties, or anywhere you want to be creative.
Machine features include:
- 8-inch cutting width
- Cut up to 60 feet in length (with select materials using a Roll Feeder)
- Matless cutting capabilities (see Tech Specs for full details)
- 2 mm clearance
- Automatic tool detection
- Wireless cutting with Bluetooth® connectivity
- Print & Cut registration capability
- PixScan™ compatible
- Driven by Silhouette Studio® giving you limitless design options to customize your projects.

Doing research on the Portrait 3 and reading up on it, it’s a comparable machine to the Silhouette Cameo 4, just smaller size.
- Automatic tool detection
- One-touch reset Autoblade (compatible with the Cameo 4)*
- Pop-out matless cutting (cut paper without a mat!). See this video for a better explanation. I made it for the Cameo 4, but it applies to the Portrait 3 as well.
