Intro to Art: Stencil Challenge Wrap Up

Cutting a Frame

So not being in class today presents an interesting challenge for today’s goal.  Below you will find simple step-by-step instructions for cutting, mounting, turning in for you to follow through today’s class period:

First, gather up all your materials.  You’ll need your art (duh), a pencil, a straight edge (either ruler or triangle) and two sheets of card stock paper.

Next, place your art, side-by-side with the card stock paper.  Making sure that the top edges are lined up, place your straight edge on the bottom edge of your art, and carry a straight line over, on top of the card stock.

Next, place your art, side-by-side with the card stock paper.  Making sure that the top edges are lined up, place our straight edge on the bottom edge of your art, and carry a straight line over, on top of the card stock.

Once you’ve drawn that clean, straight line, you can cut along side your straight edge, and you will be left with your card stock being the same size as your art.

 

Now we have to “measure” out the opening.  This is pretty simple, but very delicate, as you need to be sure you are drawing STRAIGHT LINES, or else your frame opening will look slanted.

Again, place your art side-by-side with your card stock.  With the straight edge just slightly above the top most cut out design, carry a straight line over, on top of the card stock paper.

 

By repeating this step, on all four sides of your art, you will be left with a simple “window” type square which we will cut out next.

When starting to cut out your opening, start your blade slightly above the line that it is perpendicular to.  This will ensure that once you’ve cut along all 4 sides the opening will pop out smoothly.

Congratulations!!! You’ve cut out the frame and are ready to construct the whole piece by “sandwiching” your art in between the two pieces of card stock.  Below are a few pictures showing how to do this.
