A Little Father’s Day Crafting

This week’s Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog challenge is Father’s Day.  Perfect timing as always- as I am trying to think through gifts, cards and decorations for the big day. 

I decided to make a replica of my dad's favorite ball cap as a card/decoration.  (Well, there goes the element of surprise!) My husband bought him one with an American flag for Father's Day a couple of years ago (similar to the one he wears) and my Dad wears it all of the time. 

I used an image from "Always Do Your Best-Cub Scouts" to make the cap itself.  I made it one single color instead of two as in the design.  I added thin strips of paper to the seams, bill and around the bottom to make it look more substantial (And cover gaps between the sections!). The border around the bill, which you can't see very well in the picture was created by attaching two bills together to get the desired width.  

I added the flag (at a two inch width) from the "Independence Day" cartridge. The stars were a challenge at this small size, but they turned out pretty well. 

I went ahead and made a tag for it.  I am not sure whether I am going to use it with the cap or not, but I can always use it with the gift. 

Why don't you join us over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge with your own Father's Day Cricut Craft or just stop by to see what the other talented crafters have posted?
