Hi there SCT followers, its Virginia from Fynes Designs here to share a fun craft with you today. Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining the Scrapbook & Cards Today team at Crop & Create Moncton where I got to do a fun make and take with all the attendees. I loved it so much I couldn’t wait to share it with you too!
If you follow along with me on Instagram you’d know my love for making little wooden signs. Of course that’s what I wanted to share with the group, but I added a little scrappy twist for this fun off the page project.
To make this sign we used some very basic supplies. A small pine (or spruce) board cut 1x 8 cut 5” long and a 1x 3 cut 5” long. If you don’t have a saw at home, The Home Depot will make lumber cuts free of charge for you. Then using a 1 ½ “ hole saw I carved the lens groove in the front (again if you don’t have a hole saw you could use a wooden disk from the craft store). The last step is to drill a hole for the view finder and a small hole on the top for the clicker, which you can then place a 1” roofing nail in to.
To finish the sign you can add a strand of May Arts Ribbon (I used Salmon Colored Faux Canvas, and 1/8” Grey Diagonal Stripe) simply with a thumb tack. Then simply use wood glue to hold everything in place; you’ll need about 30 minutes drying time.
Then comes the fun part embellishing! Add washi tape, enamel dots, gems, thickers, and the sign is perfectly sized to hold a cute 3×4” printed card or one you make yourself!
Wasn’t that a super easy and fun off the page project?!
To add one more prize for the SCT 9th birthday celebration that just wrapped up (let's keep the fun going!), I would love to offer one lucky reader this fun woodensign I made…
For an opportunity to win this sign, please leave a comment below by this Thursday, April 2nd at 6:00 p.m. Good luck!!!
Thanks for joining me, I’ll be back next month with another fun craft project. In the meantime please stop by Fynes Designs for weekly DIY, craft, and home inspiration.
