Personalized Door Tag
1. Trace this sign's templates onto card stock. Use scissors to cut out the shapes. Arrange them on a 5 by 6-inch thin wooden craft board. Use a glue stick to adhere the shapes to the sign. Let dry.
2. Press alphabet-letter stamps onto an ink pad and firmly stamp your child's name on the sign. Let dry.
3. Cover the sign with a thin coat of Mod Podge (a finishing adhesive). Let dry.
4. Place a ruler at the top of the sign. Find the 2- and 4-inch locations, and mark them lightly with a pencil. Measure 1/4 inch below each spot, and draw marks there.
5. Mom: Lay the sign on a cutting board. Place the tip of a sharp, pointy paring knife on one of the pencil marks. Apply pressure, and twist to make a hole in the wood. Flip the board over; on the indentation, twist the point of the knife to widen the hole—it should be wide enough to see light through.
6. Insert a sharpened pencil, and twist. This will make the hole a little bigger. Repeat this process with the other pencil mark to make the second hole.
7. Cut the ends of a 1-foot piece of ribbon so they're pointy (a 90-degree angle). From the back, thread one end of the ribbon into one hole and the second into the other, pulling taut in back. Tie a knot in the ribbon, and hang on your child's door.
