Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog!
The idea came to me when I was reaching for my glasses: Rainbow is what I see when looking at you – you color my world. I made the cardbase a polaroid by cutting a big square window in the middle on a regular A2 cardbase.
The rainbow is made with a set of nesting circle rings. I colored them each seperately and adhere to a thin piece of printer paper. The coloring dose not need to be perfect –
– Because when you adhere the glasses to the front, it will be flawless :) Cut around the edges. Again, you do not need to be perfect, just cut enough so that it will not show beyond the glasses. I went along the edges with a black marker to avoid any white lines shown.
I liked the shape of this pair of glasses and this one. They are waived of all rights according to the CC0 Public Domain Dedication. So I modified the files to cut it out with my Silhouette. You can download the patterns for both the glasses and the rainbow (sized for using as shown when print/cut at 100% scale) in both PDF and .studio formats:
1. There are many glasses shapes available in the Silhouette online store and other online resources (like the two linked above or this one). I went with a more masculine look but you could totally use a girly girl pair and add jewels or flowers to bling it up. Just have fun with it. :)
2. I find cutting circles by hand (even with a template) is the hardest of all shapes. A set of nesting circle ring dies (like this one) can be a great alternative but you will need to test the combination (resize the glasses pattern if necessary to cover at least 5 circle rings for a rainbow effect.)
