I had some gaps in the arrangement I was working on for one of our living room walls. I wanted to make some signs, but I was never good with the Silhouette. If you don’t have a cutting machine, or you don’t like using it, you could make your handmade signs the same way I do. I chose to do a take on 1 Thessalonians 4:11 which instructs us to aspire to live a quiet life, mind our own business and work with our hands.
You will need some carbon paper. I’ve linked the product I used for you.
Print the words or image you want to use for your sign. I printed mine in outline form in Word 2013. The font is Elephant.
Place a piece of carbon paper, black side down, over your wood. Fold the edges under the wood so you can see the shape of the wood- it will just make it easier to line up your image properly. Cut out the image, leaving a border, and tape it down where you want it.
Give it a quick sanding- lightly- and hang. Done!
Thanks for visiting me today. If it’s raining where you are, I hope you’re enjoying relaxing with your favorite drink and blogs. See you soon!
