A friend of mine just had a baby a couple weeks ago, so of course I had to make her something cute. Lucky for me I found this adorable subway art sign on The Winthrop Chronicles a week or so ago. I fell in love with it and knew I had to make one, too. I also had some flocked iron-on vinyl that I'd been dying to try out and this was the perfect opportunity. So here's what I gave her and her adorable baby boy:
For the sign, I first painted my board white, just around the edges and on the back. Then I created the word art in Storybook Creator (my scrapbook software that I LOVE!), printed it out and mod podged it on to the board. Easy peesy! I like to cover the board with mod podge and then put the glue on the back of the paper, too. It seems to bubble and curl less that way. I also use a brayer (or credit card, or just your hands) to smooth out all the bubbles I can. I let that dry well, and then put a coat or two on the top. Oh, I also sanded the edges of the board for a distressed look. See the above picture for the finished product.
