My husband’s Uncle Nick died about a year ago. He was an Italian-American World War II vet who had an amazing garden, loved boxing, and made his own wine. I wanted to make a table decoration for his memorial luncheon that honored him, and I came up with this:
I can’t even begin to tell you where some of these files came from, but the army files were from Miss Kate’s Cuttables, the gardening things were from the Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge, and Italy may have been from the Lettering Delights European Countries Simple Shapes. I think the boxing things were from a Google search and converted to a cutting file with SCAL, but I have no idea about the wine bottle or wine glass.
I gave it two folds so it would fold up flat for storing, but would stand up for display. I like the idea of making something that shows different parts of people’s lives or personalities, and this seemed simple enough to tell a story succinctly. People could look at it and conjure their own memories connected to each part. It was well-received.
