Hats Off (Graduation)
I was asked by one of my Gypsy students from Michaels to make this. She saw a die cut online but it was only offered in black. She wanted something that we could design on the gypsy and cut out in other colors. I chose red because my son's preschool graduation cap is red.
I used George for the rectangles. I made one 0.3 width x 8.0 height and the other at 0.3 width x 2.5 height and welded them at the corners.
I used Plantin Schoolbook for the letters and A Child's Year for the graduation cap. There is also a graduation cap on Paper Doll Dress Up, but the tassel is separate. I used the rotate button to twist and turn the caps.
I welded the letters to the rectangles, then welded the caps. Once you weld everything, you can change the overall size of the cut from the Basic Menu if you need it bigger or smaller.
This is just one more example of how I have saved money on buying embellishments by using my gypsy instead!
