Video Tutorial – JUMBO CRAYON SIGN
Here are the steps I took to make my crayon
Step 1 – Load the free cutting file into your favorite cutting software. For Cricut and Silhouette I set mine to 12×12. I used the Glowforge, however, most cutters can cut thin birch or chipboard (check your cutting machine).
Step 2 – Cut your wood or vinyl. On the Glowforge you need to mask your wood with paper transfer tape to protect from scorching.
Step 3 – Once you have your wood or vinyl cut do your weeding. For the Glowforge that means removing the mask from the wood. I found the Gorilla duct tape works amazing!!! You can also use weeding tools, pin pen, etc
Step 4 – Paint your items. I use the Posca paint pens for the small items. They are quick and easy!! I stuck the smaller items on tape so they do not move. For the large crayon I used acrylic paint and make-up sponges. To make light red for the wrapper I used Red paint and added orange and a drop of white. The orange helped it from turning pink.
Step 5 – Time to glue our items together. I use Gel super glue. I followed the PNG file that is included in your file download for placement, etc. I also show all of this in the video.
Step 6 – Finishing touches….I took a bead strand I picked up on sale (I have used the same strand for MANY projects and I still have some left!). I pulled off what I wanted and used twine and a piece of wire for a threader and made the hanger strand. I attached to the back of the crayon.
Messy bow. I love mess bows. You just cut strips of ribbon and lay them criss cross on top of each other. Some tie off with a zip tie. I just use twine and pull tight. I then attached to the bead hanger portion. I then took the crayon tags I made and attached to the bow. You might need to glue or double stick tape the bottom of the crayon tags to the crayon.
Step 9 – Look how adorable your sign is!!!! Please share!!!
