My friend has an awesome saying and she asked if I could make it into a small sign. This video is how I went about making the sign.
The first attempt I messed it up so I tried it again. I used my silhouette machine and cut the saying out on some vinyl. I removed the letters using a dental explorer, used a piece of Peel and Stick to transfer the remaining vinyl to my piece of board, then painted it with white acrylic paint. I painted it three times, blotting just a small amount of paint on the project each time and waiting for it to dry between coats. This made all the difference in the world for bleeding under the vinyl! Thank you to everyone who gave me that bit of advice! Then when the final coat was dry I peeled off the vinyl. I added a verse to the back and since this is for my very good friend I chose Philippians 1:3 (NCV) which says, “ I thank my God every time I remember you…” (I will leave a link to a video showing how I do this transfer technique.)
When I prepared the back I messed up some of the paint on the front. So I had to go back with a small brush and touch up those areas. Lastly, I added some boards around the perimeter so that it looks like a small box.
