The Silhouette Cameo® Pro is the largest electronic cutting machine on the market. With a cutting width of up to 24 inches, the Cameo Pro gives you the space you need to make your biggest craft projects. Your larger-than-life ideas are ready for you to create!
You may already own the Cameo® 4 or Cameo® Plus, which offer 12 in. and 15 in. cutting widths respectively. The other machines in the Cameo series are great for smaller crafts, but the Cameo Pro can handle much more. Not only can you make large-scale projects, but you can also cut more material at once so you can spend less time cutting and more time making.
If you’re feeling a little intimidated by your new Cameo Pro or looking for inspiration on what to create, check out these five ideas to get started!
1. Giant 3D Snowflakes
Turn your home into a winter wonderland with these giant 3D snowflakes by Kelly Wayment! We love using the Cameo Pro to create 3D paper crafts using poster board, as you’ll see throughout this list. Resizing these snowflakes to 21 inches made weeding the intricate designs much easier, and they make a bold statement in Kelly’s kitchen! Learn how to make these snowflakes in Kelly’s blog post here.
2. Chalkboard Calendar
Get organized with a large wall calendar! Reusable calendar templates like this one can be used year after year, and sizing it up to fit on our chalkboard gives us all the room we need to plan out all of our upcoming projects and classes. Cut this design out of 24-in. vinyl and add it to a chalkboard or whiteboard to create your own!

3. 3D Pickup Truck
Size up any 3D paper craft to create some jumbo home decorations! Kelly created this fun pickup truck out of blue poster board and filled the bed with some adorable pumpkins. Try swapping out the pumpkins for other seasonal décor, like paper ornaments, flowers or Easter eggs. Check out Kelly’s blog post on how she created this project here.
4. Poster Board Sign
Make a statement with customized party decorations! This playful New Year’s sign was quick and easy to make out of poster board. You could make party decorations for other occasions, or create fun classroom décor!

5. Happy Birthday Blocks
There are so many ways to make our last Cameo Pro project. These birthday blocks are a fun party decoration for kids and adults alike! For this project, we cut multiple letters out of the same sheet of glitter poster board, which was much faster than cutting individual sheets of cardstock. You could also resize the letters to fit on one sheet of poster board for large blocks, perfect for a party photo booth.
