Hey Guys, I wanted to share with you this quick, easy and cool invitation that Finn and I made last week for his birthday party. This invitation is cool for a few reasons, for one it looks awesome. Secondly it’s pretty easy, and requires little to no artistic skill. It is quickly made with a straight edge ruler, and it doesn’t take a lot of time, or cost a lot of money.
Do you remember making graphs like this in elementary school and connecting the marks? Does this thing even have a name? Help a lady out here if you know!
Finn and I used an A2 size note card. We found the center of the card and then made a horizontal and vertical line. Too make this pattern work make sure to grid out an odd number of marks. In this example we did 17 vertical marks and 17 horizontal. The 9th mark was the center mark both vertically and horizontally leaving 8 marks in every direction from the center outward. We marked out the grid using a distance of a 1/4 of an inch per dash and then began to connect the marks.
The method is easy. Draw a line from the furthest out vertical mark to the most inner horizontal mark. Keep repeating this going to the next farthest and inner mark every time. Change colors for every new layer of marks and you will have this cool diamond weave effect!
