Sharing is caring!

Hello all you Honeybear Lane folks! I’m Tam from Sew Dang Cute Crafts.

If you visit my site, you will find tutorials and projects that are mostly DIY and sewing. I’ve been remodeling/redecorating my house, so most of my projects have been related to that, but I do venture out in other areas – like paper crafting. Pretty much I just love to create!

I am thrilled to be here with you today while Heidi takes some well-deserved time off to snuggle her sweet little angel.


As I mentioned before, I am redoing most of the rooms in my house. One of them is my 2-year old son’s room, which is sports themed. I thought it would be fun to make a scoreboard for his room.


But not just any scoreboard. This one is a…

Birth Stats Scoreboard

My son was born at 1:02 p.m (so 13:02 military time) on June 14, 2009 (6-14-09).

The white dots are actually not white, but are frosted glass vinyl colored so in real life they don’t stand out as much. Hopefully I can get a better picture eventually, but for now I hope you get the idea.

I started out with a large piece of cardboard (39”x 28”), some black butcher paper, Mod Podge, and spray adhesive (not pictured).

Supplies

I used the spray adhesive to glue the paper to the cardboard, then clipped the corners like so.

Still working with the spray adhesive, I folded the excess paper over and glued it to the back, so I had the entire things covered.

Black-covered

Since I wanted to be able to wipe off any dust this might collect hanging up on the wall, I covered the entire things with a coat of Mod Podge to seal and protect it.

After that, I turned to my Silhouette and cut out all the vinyl.

The font for the numbers is Scoreboard.

I got my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, which is hands-down the best place to get vinyl (both quality and price). It’s my absolute favorite and I don’t like to use any other kind of vinyl.

Fun right?

I love how it turned out and how perfectly it goes in the room!


I hope you will all come visit me over at Sew Dang Cute Crafts.

Thanks for having me Heidi!
