Silhouette Studio Tutorial: Love Robot SVG

  1. In Silhouette Studio, use the ‘Draw an Ellipse’ tool to draw an oval. This will be the robot’s head.

2. Use the ‘Draw a Rectangle’ tool to draw both a neck and a body. Make sure that each body part slightly overlaps the next.

3. Draw two additional rectangles for the robot’s legs. Again, make sure they slightly overlap the body.

5. With the ‘Knife Tool’ (it’s second from the bottom on the left hand side), slice the circle in half. Be sure the knife setting is set to ‘Solid’.

6. Move the half circles into place to make the robot’s feet. Of course, make sure they overlap slightly.

7. Draw three additional rectangles using the ‘Draw a Rectangle’ tool. Move them into place as the robot’s arms and an antenna. Again, overlap them slightly with the shape next to it.

8. Draw three circles using the ‘Draw an Ellipse’ tool. Move them into place as the robot’s arms and antenna topper. You guessed it: They should overlap the other pieces slightly.

11. Add a few hearts around the robot. To make the hearts, I used the Border Bits font.

12. Fill your design with color and add any additional details. I added some robot ‘words’ to the bottom of my design using the ZP Ex Boyfriend font. My final design looks like this:

That’s it! Your design is ready to go!
