How To Make A 2020 Joke Gift
Putting a 2020 joke gift together doesn’t have to be complicated. I decided I wanted to display my “review” of the year 2020 on a plaque. I found a simple silver frame that already had a mat included at my local Dollar Tree. It is just the right size for a small sign in the dining room.
Creating A Design In Cricut Design Space
For this project, all of the elements I used are part of Cricut Design Space. It is simple text and shapes arranged to my liking.
Choose a fun font. For this project, I decided to use the font Four Seasons Home Decor. Which is free for use with the Cricut Access subscription. If you don’t have Cricut Access, you can select one of the free fonts available or one of your own personal fonts that are uploaded on your system.
The stars are a free shape feature also. For the outlined framed stars and the half star, I duplicated a solid star, made it just slightly smaller, and sliced the two together to make a star outline.
I then sliced a full star and the outlined star in half then welded the two together to make one complete star again for the half star rating.
The funky frame is also available for free with Cricut Access subscription. Just type “frame” in the image search box and pick one that you love. There are so many different ones to choose from.
How To Choose The Right Vinyl For Your Cricut Project
There are so many incredible StyleTech Craft vinyl types to choose from. Over the past two years, I have shown you everything from regular Glossy Craft Vinyl, Transparent Glitter Vinyl, and one of my favorites shiny, vibrant Luster Vinyl.
For this project, I was going for a bit of an industrial feel. When I received one of the new StyleTech Craft pieces of vinyl, I knew it would do the trick. This Holographic Diamond Deck Plate Vinyl is amazing! Rustic and industrial but if you turn it just slightly, you get the holographic rainbow details. How fun is that!? When the sun hits it, you can see all of the incredible details.
Even though 2020 has been “Not Good” I give this fun 2020 joke gift five stars! I will proudly display this fun plaque, and hope to a much better 2021!
Stay safe, healthy and have a very Happy New Year!!
