I got my inspiration for the signs from here.
|Southern Belles Charm|
For each sign I used black cardstock, a solid color cardstock (red, yellow or blue), and my Cricut machine.
I started by cutting the black cardstock using the Creative feature "shadow" key for each shape. Then I cut the shape in the same size in either red, blue or yellow cardstock (this time not using the shadow feature). This gave a black outline around each solid colored shape. I glued the two pieces together.
The letters were cut in black cardstock using the Cricut. I glued on the letters, overlapping and altering the placement of the letters.
For the font, I used the Doodletype cartridge.
For the other shapes I used the Accent Essentials cartridge. I used the 'Accnt9s' shape. I used the Plantin SchoolBook font for this sign.
Ideas for action words:
You could also make these by cutting them out free-hand and using rub-on or sticker letters. It would just take more time to cut out the shapes by hand.
Best part about this project:
Project cost: FREE! - I had all the paper and cartridges already on hand.
