Coloring with Paper – Father’s Day Ties

Once you are sure you understand the basics, download one or all of the tie SVG files.  The instruction sheet in the download file explains how to upload it to Design Space.

Cutting The Project

Cut the outline from black cardstock.  As you can see from the last card any color outline will do however.  The sky and your imagination are the only limits.  Do not make the file any smaller than 5 inches tall or the black lines get too thin.  This makes the ties a good size for cards and scrapbook pages.

Stick the outline to the contact paper and re-cover it with the protective backing paper.  Be sure to keep the border the right side up or you will have to reverse the paper.  Then patterned paper may not work.

Cut out the various pieces from paper scraps in your scrap bin. The ties look good with just about any paper.  Patterned paper goes real nice in these ties.  Just fill them in however you want.  Be creative.  After all, the tackier the tie, the better.

Start placing the various pieces on the ties with the tweezers. 


When all the open spaces are filled, check to make sure all the paper is secure.  Press the protective sheet over everything and press sorta hard.  Anything that seems loose, glue down with the liquid glue and let dry for at least 30 minutes.

Finally, with scissors cut around the outside leaving as much of the outside black line as you can.

Use the ties as you like.  Here I made a simple Father’s Day card.
