Banner and Sign Projects

Hi Everyone.

As promised, here are the two projects I've been working on.

The first one is the Birthday Banner I told you about on my last post.
I made it out of some recycled cereal boxes plus some music sheet printed from my computer, letters I cut with my Cricut and lots and lots of gold glitter.

Here's a closer look.
Made this pretty little birdcage on my Cricut too.
Did I mention lots of glitter?
The second project is a subway sign...I have seen them all over blogland and I love them so much I just had to jump on the Subway Bandwagon...Hee, hee, hee.
I had a piece of plywood just laying around leftover from a home project.
Gave it a coat of black spray paint.
Traced the words that I designed on my computer and painted them in white, a little bit of antiquing glaze and here it is. Hope you guys liked them.

Wishing everyone a wonderfully creative new week.

Hugs and Kisses,

The subway sign turned out so cool looking with the bold lettering! and it looks so good on the wall by your beautiful slip covered chair!!..

You've been busy girl, that's an adorable banner and I LOVE the subway sign! It appears to be professionally done. I have thought about doing it, but I am not sure about what to put on it yet. I like what you did, I'm sure it's the perfect thing for a home like yours. I'm sure everyone feels comfortable and wanted when they visit your sweet little cottage.
Love and hugs, Cindy
