Family Rules Canvas done! I started cutting out the letters this week using my Cricut Expression and finished them today. I laid them all out so I could see how they all fit. After moving some around and shortening some phrases, I was ready to glue each letter down.
In searching for other Family Rules Canvases, I was surprised how many people hand cut their letters! I can't imagine having that kind of patience. If I had to do that, I definitely wouldn't do this project. Patience is not one of my gifts! But thankfully I have a Cricut that will cut the letters for me. I suppose to some people cutting the letters might be therapeutic, but not for me!
I wanted my canvas to be different than the others that I saw online, so instead of just vertical lines all of the way down, I put a large scalloped circle to the bottom left. I think it added a little visually to the canvas and it was a great place to put a six inch "C". Each stripe is 2" and each letter is 1.5". The letters are large so I couldn't fit a whole lot of rules, but these were the ones that the whole family agreed on.
