What is a Drop Cap?
If you've ever held an old story book in your hands, you've probably admired a drop cap. It is that big capital letter that extends down three or four lines and is surrounded by fancy decoration.
I'm going to show you how to do it! It doesn't take long at all, and even though mine is not perfect or the most neat, I'm happy with the result. I think because the details are so small, mess ups don't matter as much and the whole thing looks fabulous no matter what! You'll have to show me your creations, too.
Since middle school, I would find a cute font I wanted on the computer and use my mom’s printer and scrapbook supplies to print it out and mount it nicely to cardstock. Then, I would put the card in the front of my binder and use it as a reference as I wrote out my assignments all day. After practicing for a while, I could write in that font without looking at the card, and I began to get better and better at writing in different fonts.
You can do the same!
