This is a really easy project that turns out really cute when you are all finished! You only need a few things to make it. Let’s get started!
The supplies you will need are:
Your digi scrapbooking program and a cute digi kit. I used the kit My Little Valentine by, Quirky Twerp
Your printer and paper, I use epson matte photo paper
Some chipboard, or recycle something like a cereal box!
Modpodge, Glue Stick, Scissors, Ribbon, Crop O Dile (or something to punch holes) Distress ink
The first step is to design your sign in your Photo Editing Program. I took some of the cute elements and word art in the kit and resized it to fit on an 8.5×11 piece of paper. I put them all on one sheet and printed it out in landscape mode.
After I printed it out I covered them all in ModPodge to seal them.
Just paint it on and let it dry. It will curl a little but will flatten back out when it’s dry.
After they are dry cut them out roughly and glue them to your chipboard (I used the piece of chipboard that came in my pack of printer paper..LOL gotta love recycling)
Then paint on another coat of ModPodge on your pieces, and over the edges a bit.
Once those dry you will cut them out. Take your time and use some nice sharp pointy scissors.
I like to ink my edges once they are all cut out. It gives them a nice classy, finished look. I just use a q-tip and distress ink. Here they are all inked up.
Now we are going to put all these parts together. I used my Crop a Dile to punch the holes. It works great. Really all you do is line it all up how you want it to hang. Punch the holes and add the eyelets if your want to. I had a few pink heart shaped eyelets so i used those.
The last step is to tie it all together with some cute ribbons!
I told you it was simple! Everything I used I already had! Super simple and cute!
