March Make & Take Class

So I thought it was about time that I got around to writing about my March Make & Take. I have so much fun hosting these craft nights. It is awesome to pick a project and get a bunch of ladies together to craft! Unfortunately I just can’t get around to doing them every month. So my March class was the first of the year.
I decided to do two crafts this go around, choosing to make a Lost Sock Board and a “Baby is Sleeping” Sign. As always, the ladies brought their creativity! I was taking these pictures so mine are in the mix….but don’t worry I will show the ones I made below along with a little how to!
Interested in creating one of these projects? Here is the supply list:
Lost Socks Board
-Wood Board (1×8 cut into 12in pieces) With holes drilled at the top and sides.
-Paint
-Scrapbook paper
-Ribbon or Twine
-Lettering
-Clothespins
-Decoupage
“Baby is Sleeping” Sign
-Wood Board (1×8 cut into 7.5in pieces) With holes drilled at the top.
-Paint
-Scrapbook paper
-Ribbon or Twine
-Lettering
-Decoupage
The first thing we did was paint our wood. You will probably want your paint to correspond or coordinate with the scrapbook paper that you will be using.
  
Once the paint is dry you can decoupage your scrapbook paper onto the front of your sign. Make sure to work out all of the air bubbles, I use a Pampered Chef scraper to squeeze all my bubbles out. Once the decoupage has somewhat dried, you will add another layer on top of the paper to seal things in.
After the decoupage has dried, it is time to add the embellishments and lettering. When it comes to the lettering you can do vinyl lettering, cut out cardstock to decoupage on, glued on chipboard letters, it really is up to you! For the “Baby is Sleeping” board I used black vinyl lettering and for the “Lost Sock” Board I used black cardstock cut out with my Cricut. 
For the Lost Sock Board, I added some mini clothes pins painted white. I super glued them to the front of the board and strung some twine through them. 
Another bit of twine to hang the sign and WA LA! A super cute sign to hold all of those rouge lost socks! 
The “Baby is Sleeping” sign was a bit more simple. Just a piece of ribbon strung through the top finishes this one off. 
For all those parents out there with little ones…..you know how invaluable a sign like this can be!!! So what do you think of our latest projects???
I love this creative time with the ladies and I look forward to our future crafty nights! 
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
