Let your creativity run wild with the new Silhouette Portrait® 3! This brilliant desktop cutting machine gives you the freedom to do almost anything you can think of. Built with portability in mind, the Portrait is the smallest desktop cutting machine to come from Silhouette yet. It’s much smaller than other models such as the Silhouette Cameo 4, which was also recently featured on Hochanda. This makes it ideal for when you’re crafting on-the-go!
