Spring is a fun time of year, the excitement of the end of the school year, proms, graduation parties and summer right around the corner. Plus in Minnesota the nice weather starts! I had this in mind as I went into my craft room to play today. My dog Rocko and I headed down and settled in…he has a blankie by my chair that he snuggles up on and sleeps while I work.
Graduation Cap Card free SVG File & Tutorial
Start out by cutting out all the pieces in the file. You’ll need a cutting machine such as a Silhouette or Cricut. I have the Silhouette Cameo 2 and love it! I would highly recommend it, the possibilities of what you can make are endless!
Assemble the cap as shown in the photo. It’s always good to do a dry run first to see where to glue, and then glue it together.
After trying many types of glue I recommend Art Institute Glitter Designer glue, it dries clear and has a little give, a lot of glues I’ve tried once you lay it down you can’t move it…this is a fast drying glue but you can move it around right after you place it and I rarely get my pieces perfect the first time LOL. I use it with the Art Glittering System Ultra Fine Metal Tip for a more precision placement. Be sure you don’t accidentally grab your sewing pin and stop up the glue with it….I can say from experience that the pin rusts and turns the glue rust and black colored LOL.
Last I add some highlight lines with a white Uni-ball Signo Angelic UM-120AC Gel Ink Pen 0.7 mm and he’s ready for your page, card, or wherever you’d like to put him!
