We got a bit of a headstart on some Father's day pieces for next month. For this project we used files from SimplyCrafty SVGs and papers and embellishments from the Gentlemen Folk from NitWit Collections* . We LOVE the plaids and stripes included in the collection and wanted to showcase them in all three of our pieces.
We used the Tool Caddy, Dad Easel Card and the Tie Gift Box.
The Tool Caddy - SCAL 5 and the pattern fill option allows you to just fill a shape with the image and print only the pieces you want. It was fun to add the images, do the print and even print an embellishment or two from the collection. We made a coupon book using the shirt images in the collection to join the candy in the tool caddy as part of the gift. Print and cut is made super simple using SCAL and the Skycut. All the cuts were spot on! Assembly instructions are really easy to follow on Sandy's videos. Be sure to watch them if you have any questions.
The Dad Easel Card - again we used pattern fill for several of the elements and cut an extra DAD to add a little more interest to the card using an off white as the "shadow" for the word DAD. We used another wordstrip for the inside of the card. Oh, and we did use brads -- but cut off the prongs and glued them in place with E6000 to ensure a good hold.
The Tie Gift Box is probably the fastest piece of the three to complete. The belly band is a 1 by 12 inch strip of the color of the base of the box. The box top and panel are filled using the pattern fill option in SCAL. Print and cut!
Pop up the wordstrip from the digital collection and add a tie clip to the edge of the wordstrip to finish it off. The tie clip is a piece I found in my Dad's box. I'm sure that T will like it too.
I'm happy to share that these are also showcased on the blog at SimplyCraftySVGs.com.
