I had some help this week with my two Monday Made It projects. My mom is in town for a few weeks visiting, and she's super creative (it's where I get my creative genes from), so I've been picking her brain on a few things.
This idea started like most of the other ones I've had... "I saw this idea on Pinterest." We've all been there. Although I have to admit, I do have an entire board of DIY stuff that I.have.never.done. Shhh! Don't tell anyone!
I'm just kidding, she did help me though!
Here's how you can make one, too!All you need is a Cricut machine (I have the larger one), a CriCut cartridge that has a font, CriCut vinyl and CriCut transfer paper. *This is not a sponsored post, I promise.
Anyway, the first thing you need to do (besides turning on the machine and inserting the cartridge) is place the vinyl on your Cricut mat. I chose black vinyl, but it comes in all sorts of colors. I got mine at Michael's for $5.99 with 25% off. Not expensive at all!
You will want to complete this step very carefully. Make sure that when you pull the black vinyl off of the white backing with the transfer paper, your letters are lined up. The transfer paper is what makes it super easy to apply to your whiteboard.
Total investment: ~$14 (if you already have a Cricut machine and an Cricut alphabet cartridge)
My mom and husband measured the window. Later, mom and I ventured off to get all of the supplies we needed. We stopped at Home Depot first to get the plywood for the bottoms.
Anyway, when we got home we realized that the boards didn't fit in the window. Well they did, they were just 10" too short. No idea how that happened, but it did. Luckily we took the extra piece of board that Home Depot cut off, and luckily my husband was home to help us out.
(yes, I actually did something!) screwed them into the boards.
We've got some serious stuff planned for this week, too and I can't wait to share it. What were you up to last week?
