DIY: Framed Calligraphy Quote

I found this idea on Pinterest so I thought it would be a cute idea for a graduation gift. I used a quote that I found and liked and used the fake Calligraphy technique I’ve been using recently (I’ll have to make a blog post on that really quick soon too). I chose the quote “Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded.”

I know I forgot the apostrophe in the quote but I edited it before I gave it to my friend so just ignore the error 🙂 
Materials: Shadowbox frame, pen, two pieces of paper (background paper and a cardstock paper for easy cutting), xacto knife, and cutting mat to cut on. 

The finished product:

This was my first time using an xacto knife and cutting mat (if you want to buy one, buy on Amazon! It’s cheaper than Michael’s). So it wasn’t perfect but I’m sure I just need some practice.
