Hello crafty people! This week I am working on some cute little signs for future craft fairs. Below I have the supplies that I am using to make two signs. This blog will only take you through how to make one of the two signs as I've had to adult this week and haven't had time to finish the second one! The metal hearts that I am using as the base for these signs are actually large cookie cutters from IKEA that were bought a few years ago. The sign I will be walking you through today will use the coffee bean paper, twine, white paper tape and I Love You a Latte phrase.
So the first step was to cut out the basic heart shape, slightly bigger than the metal heart itself to have a little room to play with.
Next, I stuck some paper tape onto white printer paper to make it less opaque and cut it out. I attached the paper tape and the I Love You a Latte phrase to the coffee bean heart.
Now was time to attach the metal heart to the paper. I used my small glue gun with a small tip to glue the metal heart onto the front of the paper.
I then cut the paper on the outside of the metal circle as close as I could and began the arduous process of hot glueing twine around the entire outside edge of the heart. I will admit. This took a long time. But it ended up giving the signs more finished look and I think it added a lot to the sign! The final step was to glue a small piece of twine to the back of the sign so that it could be hung. And here it is:
Over the next week or so I would love to make the second sign with the blue and purple papers and ribbons I had picked out. My plan is to use the ombre blue and purple paper as the base, cut a moon out of the teal paper and then stamp out the phrase I Love You to the Moon and Back on the light purple paper. I will cover the outside of the heart with some teal ribbon and altogether I think this will be a cute sign as well! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
