I just love Bitmojis. They are fun, cute, can be personalized, and have a bit more sass than a regular emoji. I think it would be super cute to put mine on my craft room door. So today, I am sharing with y’all the process for How to Create a Bitmoji Decal in in case you might want to do the same. Let’s get started.
*please not that Bitmoji graphics are trademarked and should not be sold*
First, you will need to select which bitmoji to use. From your phone head to the bitmoji keypad and select the character you want to transform into a decal. (I like to use this ‘hi’ one pictured below to keep it simple) Once you have picked the one that you would like, will copy it to the phone’s clipboard.
Now that the bitmoji is copied, it is time to open up email (still from your phone) and paste the graphic. After it is pasted, email it to yourself for easy accessibility on a computer.
On this step you have 2 options but for both an actual computer is needed.
- Option 1- Download the graphic onto the computer
- Option 2- Using the snip tool save the image onto the desktop
Open up the Silhouette Software and then using the open tool, find the graphic on the computer (either on the desktop or the downloads folder depending on which option above you used) and select it to open into the software.
Click on the trace tool and trace the bitmoji. (select area>trace) Once it is traced, release the compound path and clean up or delete any parts not needed for the bitmoji decal. (maybe the words hi, or maybe some tiny dots you don’t want to weed) Once you are done, I recommend selecting everything and making it a compound path again. This will make it cut much smoother.
And that’s it! Now you have a bitmoji graphic that is ready to be cut and used as a decal that you can place around your house or office. Simple right?! You could even mirror it and cut it on Heat Transfer Vinyl for a shirt or bag! Curious as to how to create a shirt with HTV? Check out this post where we walk you through the process.
I can’t wait to see your bitmoji and where you decide to place it! Make sure to share in the comments below or over on our FB page.
