I admit I have 2 Cricuts and LOTS of cartridges, but I seldom use them. Being mostly a quilter and painter, I don't have a lot of need for a die-cut machine. However, this week my neighbor announced she wanted to have a block-long yard sale.
Perfect! Time to break out the Cricut and make a couple of signs.
I quickly made these signs out of old scrap paper and used the Don Juan lettering cartridge (an oldie but goodie). The letters are set to 5" and pasted to a 14"x22" poster board. The first board is folded in half. To make the letters stand out just a little better, I outlined them with a black Sharpie and added "stitches" to the inside border. Cute, if I do say so myself.
Not knowing which way to point the arrow, I added brads to the back so the arrows could spin either way. On the smaller sign, I folded it in half and put the arrows on either side. The direction you don't use can be turned inward and hidden behind the fold.
The yard sale is slated to start at 8 a.m., but you can bet there were be early birds here by 6a.m.! Got to get busy!!
