We had gotten everything needed for the party, except for a Sweet Sixteen name board, apparently this is something you are supposed display in the hall. The party was only a few days away, it was too late to have one custom made and it cost a few hundred dollars. We ditched the idea of buying one and decided to not have one at all. Then I thought, how hard can it be to cut out a name on foam board and glitter it up?
This is what I made…
This is what I used:
1) Two foam boards
2) Elmer's spray adhesive
4) Electric knife
First, I figured the font I wanted to use for the letters and I free-handedly drew her name. I drew very large letters so I was only able to fit three letters on one board and I managed to fit four letters on other board. I had first started to use an exacto knife to cut out the name, but the knife was too difficult to use. I then used the electric knife and it cut perfectly. After I cut out both boards I used my glue gun to attach the two pieces to make the name. I glued small pieces of foam board to the back of the name to secure the adjoining seam.
I sprayed with Elmer's spray adhesive...
And glittered it up with two layers of glitter!
Instead of a dot over the i, I cut out a crown and added some jewels for our little princess!
Happy Sweet Sixteen Birthday to our Madison!
