I bought this little Christmas sign at Goodwill a few weeks ago.
It's about 3 feet long by 8 inches high.
I created a blank slate by covering it with ivory craft paint.
It took about 4 coats to cover the whole thing.
What a pain!
From this angle it looks fairly straight.
But from this angle, you can really see the bend.
I finally decided to paint the sign with my blog's name...
Then taped them together.
Because I wanted to make my lettering into a stencil, I used the ol' 'rub the back side of the letters with a pencil then lay it over a sheet of freezer paper (shiny side down) and trace over the letters to leave an outline of the lettering on the freezer paper' trick.
Next, I carefully cut the negative area out with a razor blade.
Now, I had to attach the freezer paper to the board. Last time I used freezer paper was on my lampshade, so I was able to use my straightening iron. But my iron wouldn't work for on this thick board.
So I asked my SIL if I could borrow her iron, but her's was in storage. But then she told me she had a crafting iron that was specially made for transferring iron on patches and decals. Perfect!
Hold on to your pants because this is the cutest thing EVER.
