Hand-Lettered Hang Up and Text Me Free Cut File. Plus, how to whip up a cute and easy DIY Phone Case!
Hand-Lettered Hang Up and Text Me Free Cut File
So…this might be my favorite thing I’ve ever made with my Silhouette Cameo. Mostly because my introverted personality means I dread talking on the phone. So I created this “Hang up and text me” phrase, turned it into a cut file, and whipped up an easy DIY Phone Case.
FAQ: What font is that?
I’m so flattered when people ask that, but it’s not a font. Unless otherwise noted, most of my designs are drawn by hand and digitized or done directly on my iPad Pro. This design was hand lettered using my iPad Pro.
Want to whip up your own? Here’s how!
- Phone Case. I used a basic clear cover.
- *Hang up and Text Me Cut File: Studio3 // SVG // PNG
- Silhouette Cameo
- Oracal 651 Permanent Vinyl
- Transfer Paper
- Hook Tool and Scraper Tool
*Please note: All freebies are ©2016 Dawn Nicole Designs® / Kimber Dawn Co. and are for personal use only. This means you cannot sell anything you create with the file unless you purchase a commercial use version. You can find commercial use versions of many of my hand-lettered designs in our shop using the button below!
Now, let’s make our custom DIY Phone Case!
Step One: Download the design. Then, open Silhouette Studio and then go to File>Open and select the design from wherever you saved it to your computer.
Step Two: Measure your phone cover and resize the design to fit properly.
Step Three: Cut the design on vinyl and use the hook tool to weed out any unnecessary areas of vinyl (like the letter centers).
Step Four: Apply transfer paper to your vinyl cutout. I like to stick my transfer paper to my shirt once or twice before doing this so it’s not overly sticky.
Step Five: Apply design to phone cover as shown below, using the scraper tool. Carefully peel of the transfer paper.
And in just a few minutes you now have a fun custom phone cover!

FAQS on Using Cut Files…
I’m getting an error message when I click the .Studio3 file and it won’t open.
Yep, that’s because your computer doesn’t know what program to use to open it. To open it, you need to open Silhouette Studio first. Then go to File>Open and select the file from your desktop (or wherever you saved the cut file). Voilá! It works!
How Do I Use the SVGs?
You will need the Designer Edition of the Silhouette Studio software to open an SVG file. You can get it on Amazon here. They sometimes have it as low as about $25 which is about half of retail and was available at the time this posted. If you have the Designer Edition of the software, here is a video tutorial on using SVGs.
How Do I Get the Designs into My Silhouette Studio?
Unless you’re buying from the Silhouette Design Store, designs won’t automatically download to Silhouette Studio. Whomp, Whomp. But don’t worry, it’s still easy to save them to your library! Here’s how:
- First, save the downloads to a folder on your desktop.
- Then, open Silhouette Studio.
- From within the software, Go to File>Open and select the design(s) you want to use.
- Once you have them open you can go to File>Save>Save to Library to save them in Silhouette Studio.
