Do you know what September 8th was? Don’t worry if you didn’t, my son is 3 and that makes it… 3 years that I have forgotten Grandparent’s Day. I know all of you are shaking your head in disappointment.
When you miss a special day 3 years in a row, your gift better be good when you finally do remember. That is why when I saw this idea from Carrie, my silhouette buddy, I knew it would be perfect.
I followed the same concepts as her tutorial. The only thing I really changed were the words, and I used a magnetic photo pocket instead of acrylic . This was the only kind I could find, and it ended up working pretty well. I would recommend that you “break it in” a little before gluing it to the tile. They are pretty stiff at first, so loosening it up makes it easier to get the picture in later.
I played around with the fonts and sizing in the Silhouette Software till the lettering would fit on the tile. Of course, I am still new at this, so I printed out a test version in card-stock before making the final cut.
After I cut out the vinyl, I used transfer paper to position the design in place and glued the frame to the tile. It came together very quickly, and I’m so pleased how it turned out!
I love that this gift can be reused with different pictures over and over. That way grandma’s current favorite can always be on display.
Well, do you think the gift was good enough to be forgiven for the last 3 years?
