Adorn Banners from Laura Worthington is part of the Marigold Package on Mighty Deals. This is actually a font. You receive a guide that shows the end pieces and the middle pieces and you put them together. Here’s a sample from the guide:
It’s incredibly easy to do. For the banner above, I typed q99t. The type in the banner is from the same package. It’s Adorn Engraved.
The frame below is from another font in that package called Harlean. It is a little harder to do because it involves flipping and rotating letters. Just type each one in a separate text box and then move and flip them.
The font for this is also Harlean. Notice that it looks handwritten and is a bit distressed. This style looks great when you are cutting from matte vinyl.
Here’s a little “How-to”
I am working on a Mac, but on a PC you would use either the Character Map or Nexus (if you have a PC and you don’t have Nexus, you don’t know what you’re missing! This tutorial is for the bottom frame.
- In Silhouette, start a text box with Samantha Upright (I used bold, but you don’t have to). Set the size at 200 points. I type in a letter as a place holder just so I can see everything. I delete it later.
- Using Font Book on a Mac or Character Map or Nexus on a PC, locate the ornament you want (you have to scroll through a lot of glyphs to get there) and copy it.
- Paste it twice inside the text box and if you used a placeholder, delete that. I used a fill on mine to make it easier to see, but it’s not necessary.
Now ungroup them and select one.
- Right Click and select FLIP VERTICALLY
Move into position.
