Is It Too Late To Be Good?


"Dear Santa, Is it too late to be good?"  Sounds like a letter that my son would write.  Actually it's probably more like my husband!  I used my Silhouette for this one too.  Sorry for those who don't have one.  I swear this is the last Christmas project I will be using it for.  :)


This is actually a really easy one to do without a cutting machine.  You can use a regular stencil or print out the lettering and use graphite transfer paper to trace it on.  You could also find some letter stickers in the scrapbooking section.  

I found the wooden plaque at JoAnn's for less than $1.  For the paint I mixed together green and yellow until I had kind of a Grinchy Green.  I put two coats of the paint then cut the lettering out of white self adhesive vinyl and stuck it on.  The font I used is Badaboom.  To get it to stand up I tacked a piece of cardboard to the back and folded it over.

HA! I need to make one of these for my hubs. He already has an ornament that says "Dear Santa, I'm doing the best I can", and I made a charger that has Naughty (for him) or Nice ( for me of course!).
