Welcome Back to School DIY Ruler Sign 1


Hello creatives!  Beth here on the blog today to share my Welcome Back to School DIY Ruler Sign made with school supplies and my favorite Tombow Dual Brush Pen Set – Brights!  I love being challenged to craft with unconventional materials like school supplies.  It really gets my creative juices flowing!

Here’s how I made my fun and colorful DIY Ruler Sign!

STEP ONE:

Gather nine wooden rulers and your favorite rainbow colored Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I used the Bright set.

STEP TWO:

Color each wooden ruler a different color.  This is quick and easy with the Tombow Dual Brush Pens AND there is NO drying time.  Perfect for the impatient crafter, like me!  I really love the transparent stained effect that the pens give the unfinished wood.

STEP THREE:

Attach the rulers to a Kunin® Classicfelt™ 9” x 12” Craft Cut in Sandstone with Tombow MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue.  The MONO Multi has a quick set up time, holds heavy embellishments and works on a variety of surfaces.

STEP FOUR:

Spell out your greeting using JOY self adhesive embroidered letters.  I selected WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL using the 3″ Varsity Block and the 1 1/2″ Cooper Style letters.  Then just peel off the backing paper and attach!

STEP FIVE:

Attach white ball fringe to the bottom edge of the sign and a black ribbon hanger to the top with Tombow MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue. Embellish with bows.
