I love Julia Child. She was a fascinating woman. I love some of the things she said. “If you’re afraid of butter, use cream” is one of my favorite, but I love “People who love to eat are always the best people.” We love food here. We love people who love food. Anyway, I tried to create this sign months ago using this tutorial. It didn’t work for me. It looked horrible. It was more of a “Pintester” project. (PS, you must read her blog. I’m in love.) It annoyed me every time I looked at it. So, while I was bored during a football game Sully was watching, I looked through my craft pins to find something to do.
I found this tutorial using stickers. I have tons of stickers left over from my scrapbooking days. It worked really well.
I happened to run out of stickers, which I made some Es using F and I. I also was able to peel “People” off and re-use it for the bottom. I started with a piece of balsa wood from Michaels. I painted it white and let it dry for months (it was the start to another project I quit….). Stuck some stickers down, painted over them, peeled them off, let it dry overnight and hung it in our kitchen!
If you are going to reuse your stickers because you ran out, just know you need to move them quickly or they won’t work again. So, go check out this tutorial from Mallory!
