Maria here with you again with a very quick and simple project. It is my friend's twins birthday very very soon and as a last minute present I have made a family frame for them.
This is honestly a very quick project, I think it took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish! But I think the final result is gorgeous... I'll let you be the judge!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Silhouette Cameo or Portrait
- Patterned paper
- Deep box frame
First of all I open the Design Page Settings window, as the frame that I have is just over 8.5 inches square, so I want my mat to show that size so I know where I'll be working.
I originally wanted to make a family tree style frame, but to be honest, I couldn't find one that I liked for this particular family, which is really surprising as there are tons of them on the Silhouette Design Store. So I decided to just create my own from scratch, making it like a "subway art" piece.
So I chose my desired font and resized it to fill the page. I did the same with all the other names, resizing them to fit as needed as not all the words are the same length.
And you are ready to cut! Very straight forward, see?
However, just a little warning... You will be using the negative space on your frame, which means you have to be really careful when weeding your cut off the cutting mat, as you don't want to break any pieces!
This is how you put the frame together. Deep box frames have a wooden insert that sits between the glass and the back of the frame. You put your cut against the frame, then the insert on top, and lastly you put your pattern paper over the insert. That creates the shadow :)
And here is the final project! I hope you have enjoyed it
Thanks for dropping by and read you soon! x
