It’s raining, it’s pouring… I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but it’s definitely springtime here in northern Utah! We’ve been getting lots and lots of rain. And with all this wet weather, I thought it would be fun to feature some cute rain gear. Use these adorable, die cut umbrellas to give your spring projects an extra cute touch.
Sunny, warm weather is definitely the ideal in my book, but I don’t really mind the rain. Well, I suppose that depends on what my plans for the day entail: if I’m just going to work or reading a book at home, sure—bring on the rain! If I’m on vacation or planning to actually do some yard work this weekend, you’d better believe I’m praying for sunny skies. I personally believe Mother Nature should be barred from letting it rain on Saturdays during the Spring and Summer months. How am I suppose to mow, weed, rototill, mulch, etc. if it rains on Saturday?
But regardless of any mixed feelings I have about the rain, I definitely don’t have mixed feelings about these umbrella designs! I had a surprising amount of fun designing these, and I love how they turned out.
I read a book not long ago where the main character designed and built unique umbrellas as a hobby. She talked about different ways of imagining the functionality as well as all the stylistic elements. I had that in the back of my mind when I was doing these designs: thinking about the shape of the canopy, the unique form the handle can take, and even the little ferrule on top. Who knew there were so many little details that went into such a simple object?
I use a Cricut Maker to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it! For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome spring freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy making use of my die cut umbrellas! What spring projects could you use these cuties for?
