Brother ScanNCut Tutorial – Creating Scoring Lines Using ScanNCut Canvas

By Alanda / January 5, 2018

Yes, you can create scoring lines with the Brother ScanNCut…yay! However, you can’t do it on the machine itself. It has to be done in ScanNCut Canvas which is the free online software that Brother provides for all ScanNCut users.

You can access ScanNCut Canvas here.

In this tutorial, we show you how to create a greeting card template and include a scoring line so that you can fold the card in half.

Watch the video above for the full tutorial but here are the basics for using the Dashed Pattern option to create scoring lines.

1. Add a shape to the screen and ensure that it is selected.

    I s I so appreciate your tutorials. I have tried at least 5
    times to weld the two objects for an envelope to no avail. (Perhaps my laptop screen is too small to line up the four components?) Is there any chance you are able to share the finished envelope?
