House Hold Rules

This idea has been all around this blogging world and I finally finished mine!
I did it a little different. Here's how mine came out:

I was lucky with this project because I used things I alreay had on hand! Wait, I lyed, I did buy Command strips to hang it SO, I spent $3.00.

First, I came up with my sayings (or rules). I did it in a tile form; have the "starting" word in the middle and the rules on the side... (this is hard to explain). Here's a close up to show you what I mean...

SO, you would read it as follows: Always Participate, Always Strengthen, Always Help, Always Encourage...etc.

Then you need a board. Let me show you want I used for the board.

Yup, I used this normally "trashed" item that my Grandma saved for me. (She usually buys gift card holders in this 12 pack container from Costco). When she showed me, I new it would work perfect as a board.
Here's what I did:

I wrapped it in brown wrapping paper (again, already on hand)

Mod Podge the rule tile paper to the board

Put a thin layer of Mod Podge on top
Let dry.

Paint the edges black (making a frame around the paper)
let dry.

Since the board was NOT wood. I couldn't hammer a saw tooth hanging bracket on the back.... That's where the Command Picture Hanging Strips came into play.
You can print off a couple for these Command strips here

I placed two Command strips on the top corners and one on the bottom middle

Then I stuck it to the wall.

I also cut vinyl with my cricut:
Simpson's Household Rules....
Living in this World,
Experiencing all God's thrill

(oops, I just realize I didn't add the "h" in thrill. I'm going to have to fix that) lol
