Class Door Sign (TDS Lifetyle Issue #14)

A month from now schools will be closed for 2 months here in Sweden and I haven't think of any plans yet on what my son will be doing this summer vacation.  So far, it's confirmed that we're going to Denmark and meet for the first time a fellow dear crafter I met through Multiply.  Then we plan to go to UK and visit my brother for a week.

Anyway, last school year, I made this project for my son's class door and was published at TDS Lifetyle
( http://www.thedailyscrapper.com/2009/issue14tds/hybrid_classdoorsign.html ). 

Supplies Needed:
• Back To School Kit by Stacy Molter of Kalo Designs
• A4 Matte Photo Paper
• Pieces of Wood
• Wood Driller
• Beads
• Thread
• Color Box Pigment Brush Pad (Black and Copper)
• Sandpaper
• Wooden letters
• Pearl Maker
• Dimensional Magic
• Wood Glue

1. Gather all the pieces of wood and drill 2 holes on each side (top and bottom).
2. Use a piece of sandpaper to smoothen all sides of the wood.
3. Using a nylon thread, begin creating a sort of a necklace using your choice of beads. But this time once you achieve the handle part of the door sign, insert a piece of wood.
4. Then every after one bead, insert another piece of wood until you achieve the desired length of the door sign.
5. When at the end of the beading, add a curtain tussle. You can create your own tussle like what I did.
6. Cut the printed papers according to the size of the wood and adhere onto the wood (front and back).
7. Distress the paper and ink the sides freely.
8. Add the printed and cut-out embellishments that you prefer to remain flat.
9. For embellishment that you want to highlight, add dimensional magic and let dry before adhering.
10. Adhere the word “open” at the top part of the door sign then add pearl maker and let dry.
