For my project today I created a Back to School card in the shape of a bus!

Did you know that it is really simple to make almost any Silhouette shape into a card?  Here's how you can do it!

1)  Start off by clicking on the shape
2) Choose the Replicate button  
3) Click the Mirror Above choice so you get an image directly above your original
4)Move the shape close enough to the original that the part that you want to become the card fold is touching the same part on the original.

5) Click the Modify Button
6) Highlight the whole shape
7) Click Weld

This will produce something that looks like the above screen and will work perfectly for a foldable card! This is one of my favorite quick tricks to make one of a kind cards to share with those I love!  

After adding your yellow overlay to the bus decorate it with a white pen, a back to school banner, and some stickers to make it personal!
