Our little baby, now an incredible 5 months old, sleeps downstairs. Okay, not really…. her bedroom is downstairs. But this little doll, I just can’t seem to separate from her! So for now, except for naps, she sleeps in a bassinet beside me (which she is dangerously close to over-growing!) But the rest of the family has a hard time clueing in that when her door is closed, it probably means she’s sleeping in there. So I decided she needed a large sign. Honestly, it doesn’t help much, but it looks pretty!
I scrounged together some supplies around the house, plus made the home-made Modge - Podge Recipe I posted about here.
Step 1 - Black Craft Paper... wrote words by hand and cut them out...
Step 2 - found corresponding craft paper
Step 3 - used 3D tape to tape onto fancy craft paper
Step 4 - found some scrap cardboard lying around
Step 5 - Roughly painted matching blue Craft Paint to the edges
Step 6 - Making Modge Podge... glue and a jar
Step 7 - Modge Podge... pour glue into jar
Step 8 - Modge Podge... add equal amount of water
Step 9 - Modge Podge... shake, shake, shake!
Step 10 - "painted" modge podge onto the surface of the cardboard
Step 11 - Apply sign
Step 12 - when dry, applied top layer of modge podge
Step 13 - allow to dry ~ was starting to curl a bit, so I "weighted" down the corners
step 14 - added blue ribbon and an 'E' accessory, and ta-da!
...my next Victim!
…although, the way this table is treating me, I might be the victim!
