This week my kiddos are on Easter vacation, so during this week I’ll be posting some new and some flashbacks (are you a Lostie) to a few of my favorite posts at the beginning of my blogging adventure.
Since posting my burlap and shell wreath, I’ve had a some questions about my address on our front door.
Last fall I showed how I made this with CONTACT PAPER… yes, cheap… you can find almost anywhere…. white contact paper. I was wanting a vinyl address sign, but didn’t have the $$ for it. So I had to improvise.
First I played around on the computer till a found a font & size I liked and printed out the "NO." and "570".
I taped down the printed page on a cutting board (scrapbooking).
Then I used an x-acto knife and very slowly cut out the numbers. I used painter’s blue tape to hold everything down while cutting.
Then I took the numbers that were cut out and taped the numbers on top of the contact paper.
I’d say it took me "maybe" an hour to do & this is while I was getting kiddos their afternoon snacks & homework started. It was easy & cheap ~ just the way I like my projects.
If you look at the cut-outs closely they definitely aren’t as clean as a vinyl cut-out would be, but these fit my budget.
I hope you enjoyed this flashback. Power of Paint Party (POPP) will be starting tomorrow night (TUES) at 7pm. Hope to see you then…
