Ok, so what does this bookcase have to do with our sign? How about you use part of it, say a shelf to make your sign? That is what I did! I had an old white bookcase that I was getting rid of, but set aside one of the shelves, free sign!
Then I started getting my letters ready. I wanted all black lettering on my sign. I didn't have enough stickers to do an entire sign, so I decided to mix up my lettering. I used stamping, stickers, chipboard and foam letters. My foam and chipboard letters weren't black to begin with but a quick coat of acrylic paint got them ready. After I painted them, I just covered them with a quick coat of matte acrylic sealant.I layed out my papers and made sure to vary the way they were mounted. Some were torn, some edged with decorative scissors and some were just straight cut across. They were affixed to the board with the same Mod Podge.
I really liked how the various styles of letters looked on the sign. It mixed it up, but since they were all black it didn't look too busy. Overall I was thrilled with how it turned out. The kids like it as well, and it's come in handy several times already in the few days that it's been in the living room.
