Using Kaleidoscope Kreator to Create Designs for Electronic Cutting Machines

I recently posted this ornament on Facebook and the response was overwhelming. I was learning how to use the Brother ScanNCut and decided to test cutting an intricate design that I’d made in Kaleidoscope Kreator.  It was deceptively simple, but there seems to be some confusion as to how I created the design.

While in Houston at International Quilt Festival, one of our customers turned me on to a great product called Little Windows.  It’s an easy way to turn photos into jewelry, but I immediately thought of using kaleidoscopes instead of photos.
