Creating Your Own Back to School Sign

 
 Hello Crafters! 

Happy Friday! 
We made it :) 

Since my little started school this year I jumped on the Pinterest Mom bandwagon and made him a cute little sign to hold. 
Also, I think it'll be super cute to save it for him along with his first day of school photo. 



I've been into handlettering for a few years now but I don't usually share it. Since this particular project was for my son I decided to share anyway in case you'd like to try and make one for your littles too :) 


I started by picking out the images I wanted to use and then laying down a rough idea of the layout. 
Almost always I start out with a completely different game plan then the end result. I'm actually okay with it since that means I get to try a bunch of different ideas. 


Eventually I figured out that laying down the dies and tracing them gave me a really good idea of how to arrange the words I wanted to include on the sign. I do everything in pencil and then once I'm happy I go back in with a copic safe writing pen.  


Once everything was outlined I did super simple copic coloring with the letters. I stamped my images out and kept with the same simple coloring for these too. It doesn't have to be fancy guys. Simple can be cute too :) 

Parts had to be sped up but you can see the whole process in the video below 



Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I'll see you soon :)

  1. OMG! This is so cute! My "peanut" is about to turn 36 and I think I will make an age appropriate one that includes science as she is a microbiologist at UGA. She's nutty like me and will get a laugh out of it and put it on the front of her desk in her office. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Such acute card!! And I love your personableness, sharing your every day happenings.☺️ When I serviced on the PTA that was a national organization which parents had to pay dues to. We felt it wasn't worth the little support they offered & hoops ee had to jump through to belong. So we started our own PTO which was solely run by the parents. No annual dues and we were able to call the shoots for what was best for our children and school.
