I downloaded a set of free printable Christmas gift tags from a website. I would like to use the offset or trace features of the Cameo to cut the tags out after I print them since they are not basic shapes like circles or squares.

I can download them as a pdf or I can click and save them as a jpg. The problem is that it saves the whole page and not the tags individually.

I don't know how to solve this problem. I have tried to make a box around each tag to work with them, but it's not working for me. I feel like I am missing an important step. Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance!

(If it would help, I can link the gift tags to my post, if it is permissible by twopeas.)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I watched the second one and used the techniques it showed, and it worked beautifully! I used the Trace and Detach feature. The more I learn about this software, the more I am amazed at what it can do. Truly wondrous.

Now I'm off to watch Kristina's video, too. It never hurts to watch more than one way to do something.

Thank you again!
