The writer in me can’t seem to get enough quotes: song lyrics, book quotes, movie lines – they’re all up for grabs. It’s a fun way for me to bring the things we love into our home in a very personal way. When I decided to create a little sign to go above our bar, I knew I wouldn’t want something ordinary. So I thought long and hard and finally thought of a line from my favorite movie, The Holiday. When Jude Law crashes in on Cameron Diaz’s first night in London, she asks if he’d like a drink, so which he tells her that there’s brandy then asks, “Fancy a glass?”
I started with a few supplies:
A piece of 1×8 board, cut to 24 inches – and paint washed with gray paint
Adhesive vinyl (I used this kind from my partners at Happy Crafters)
Vinyl transfer tape
I plotted out the words in the Silhouette software, using the Bombshell Pro font. Then I cut out the words in vinyl.
Then I used transfer tape to put over the entire piece.
Then I put it onto the board and used a razor blade to trim it to fit the sign perfectly.
Then I peeled the paper off the back of the vinyl, leaving the vinyl onto the transfer tape.
Then I carefully painted on a couple of coats of paint. I let it dry then peeled off the vinyl to reveal the words.
