Welcome Stamp and Scrapbook Expo friends, Becki here, for another edition of Inspiration Station. I am absolutely giddy about the project that I have to share with you. This DIY 4th of July home décor was so fun to create and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. Also, it took me less than 30 minutes to create, from start to finish. It’s really that easy!
I started with a wood sign that I picked up at the craft store the other day. I wanted to add foiled lettering to the sign to create a 4th of July decoration for my home. I used these awesome Peel and Stick Toner Sheets from Therm O Web and Deco Foil.
I chose THIS cut file from the Silhouette store. I cut the toner sheet with my Silhouette Cameo (the adhesive cardstock setting worked perfectly). The Silhouette cut just through the toner sheet but not the backing. This made it easy to apply foil because all the letters and stars were together on one sheet.
Once I had the design cut out, I removed the negative pieces. Then came the really fun part, applying foils.
I chose red, blue, and silver star foils. I simply cut the foil into small pieces and placed the foil over the black letters and stars. Then, I put it through a laminator (make sure the laminator is really hot).
This is what the design looked like after I applied the foils. Isn’t it awesome? Now, for the best part – placing the design on the wood sign.
I drew some faint pencil lines with a ruler to make sure I didn’t put the design on crooked.
The design went onto the wood sign perfectly. The foil letters are just like stickers. All you have to do is peel and stick them in place.
Once the letters were in place I erased the pencil marks and my sign was finished. (Seriously, it took me less than 30 minutes!)
I wish you could all see this in real life, the foils look awesome against the wood background.
I will be recreating this project for other holidays. I have so many ideas for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and even Saint Patrick’s Day. Oh, the possibilities are endless!
Thank you for stopping by the Weekly Scrapper blog, I’ll see you all next Thursday.
