The Big "C"!

Yep.... literally a BIG C!  I got a giant chipboard "C" a while back.  I was going to use it for something else, but didn't receive all of the letters I needed.  So, it went into my stash destined to stay there for a good long time.  In moving my piles of stuff back and forth, the big "C" ended up on top of my box of Scrappin' Sports goodies and I decided that my son needed a new sign for his bedroom door!  And, off I went!

His favorite color is red, so I started there.  There's a perfect RED dot paper included in the new "Sports & Activities" line!  I traced the "C" on the red paper and cut it out.

Then, I adhered the paper to the C, added a ribbon to the back, and put some alphas stickers from deep within my stash along the bottom.  Then, my son's favorite part.... I used some black embroidery floss and some cardstock stickers.  I put one with the sticky side up, placed the floss down, and then put another sticker on top creating a "sticker sandwich."  That way if the sports balls spin while he is opening and closing his door, they will still look good.  Then, I adhered the floss to the back of the "C" and trimmed the ends.  Finally, I took down the old sign and hung the new one.
