Something for Dad

Father’s Day is just a few day’s away so today I thought I’d share a simple project that would be great as a gift for dad to hang in his office, or as decor for a special Dad’s Day dinner.

Supplies I used :: ‘The worlds greatest dad’ shape, two pieces of cardstock, adhesive and an 8″ x 10″ frame.

I started by opening the phrase shape in Silhouette studio. Then, I used the rectangle tool to draw an 8″ x 10″ rectangle. To center the phrase inside the rectangle, I selected both shapes, opened the align window and clicked center.

I cut the shape out of black cardstock, then adhered just the negative space over the top of an 8″ x 10″ piece of off-white cardstock.  Then, I went back with my glue pen, adhered all of the insides of the letters and the word ‘world’s’ inside the banner and popped it in the frame. Super easy!

What are you making for dad this year?

    I have not decided what I am making this year :S I better get a good idea soon! Your framed piece is great. I also like to use the negative pieces in the current project or a card. I use the negative to glue on the pieces so they are straight like a template. Great job…your Dad will love it.

    Hi there, Beautiful and neat! By the way, is there a name for the letter set used in the words: DAD /Wold’s? I have been looking around with no luck though. Any clue? Thanks,

  5. How do you make a perfect 8×10 rectangle around the phrase? I just opened my cameo. Thanks bunches!

      Yay for your new CAMEO! To get the 8 x 10 rectangle you’ll use the rectangle tool which you can find on the left side of the screen in Silhouette studio and draw a rectangle any old size. Then, find the scale window icon at the top right of the screen {it’s the one that is to the right of the rounded arrow} In that window you can enter the specific dimensions of the shape. Hope this helps! :)
