DT: Nurse’s Office Door Sign
This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to use my SNAP to create a door sign for my work:
I got some ideas from Pinterest, but decided to use flowers instead of stars to make it my own.
I wanted to continue the same design I used for my sanitation stations. Thus, I cut letters and Tiles from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and Tattered Lace dies.
Here are some of the dies and the paper pack I used:
I cut a 7.5 x 7.5 in square out of chalk board paper. I cut 3 pieces (7 x 2 in.) of gold thick card stock to make the frames for the word tiles. For the smaller tiles, I cut 6 DCWV paper rectangles (3 x 1.5 in.) to frame the 2.75 x 1.25 in. black chalk board paper. I glued all frame titles uding double side tape to the big chalk board square leaving an upper border to add my title.
Then, I cut flowers, leaves, and the alpha die cuts using my SNAP machine.
Then, I trimmed 2 cards from the cards printed paper to die cut my smilly face in gold and the (CraftWell) paper clip heart. I glued them together and glued it to a wooden cloth pin to make my sign marker.
Later, I realized that I should have glued the die cuts separated and on both side of the cloth pin, so remedied that by die cutting an arrow from the left over card and adding touches of black with a marker to emphazise the arrow and I added more black aound the heart (not shown), the smilly face. I paper pieced a nurse's hat and colored the cross with red gel pen:
Here some closer views of the finished door sign:
Again, I was able to use my SNAP machine while at work and now I have a nice sign to meke me smile while I'm working.
I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit Craftwell for more inspiration and to follow me.
