Today I'm sharing a door sign I made for Ali's handsome nephew Sam.  It's for Crafty Ribbons Challenge - One For The Boys.

It's a piece of chipboard covered with gesso, star sequins and acrylic paint.

I've stuck two lengths of ribbon along the bottom with red backed double sided sticky tape.

The chipboard letters have had a coat of gesso, then a couple of coats of acrylic paint and to finish them off I've outlined them with a black felt tip.  I have attached them with glue gel to give extra dimension.

I popped a couple of brads in and threaded another length of ribbon for the hanging tie.

You can find the ribbons here... 

I wish I had a small man in  my life.  I picture these ribbons used as shoelaces on a pair of black trainers.  It would be so cool!!

I hope to see you joining in over at the challenge...
Thanks for stopping by


  1. Loving the sign. What a good idea to use those ribbons as shoe laces.

    You could use nice laces in your own shoes....go on I dare you:)

    1. Ah Sue, what you don't know is I already have a pair of blue trainers with fluro pink laces!! :)
      I'll be over to yours soon to catch up x

  2. What a fabulous idea! And thank you so much for the description on how-to. I've got some of their baby ribbons I could do something like this for a new born gift :0) Mo
