Where did you get all those signs?

I made them! I borrowed a girl friend's projector and traced the characters on really thin plywood, used a jig saw to cut them out, and a friend of mine painted them. For the text signs, they're also thin plywood with vinyl lettering that I used my Silhouette cutter for.

Ashley, we have friends who don't eat beef, so I used chopped chicken and had cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa for toppings. Good luck with your party!

Sorry I didn't realize my son was logged into his Facebook. I wrote the above post to see if you were interested in selling some of your signs or all of them? I am having my grandaughter a Dora themed party in November. I love the party ideas you had a awesome Dora themed party.

Hi Christine, Everything is coming together for my little girl's birthday!! I have one more question? Did you use Diego's backpack face template for the maps? Thank you so much for your help!!

Profile_picture_71058220_small

Christine B says...

@ 10:48 on Oct 19, 2012

Carmen, the entire pattern for Diego's backpack is on Craftsy at http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/accessory/diego-rescue-pack-tutorial/30874 It has the face template as well. I think I based it off of the face template you can download from the Nick Jr website, but I'm not certain if I modified it or not.

Profile_picture_71058220_small

Christine B says...

@ 17:19 on Mar 26, 2013

Img_4916_thumb Cat, I made them. You can do it too with a projector and cardboard or really thin plywood!

Img_4933_thumb i have been looking for cutouts everywhere online, where did you find these?

Profile_picture_71058220_small

Christine B says...

@ 17:25 on May 03, 2013

Img_4933_thumb Erin, I made them from thin plywood. You could do the same with an overhead projector and thin plywood, cardboard, or insulation board.

Hi, I'm sure you've already sold your signs if you decided to sell them, but I just wanted to check to see if you still had them. Thanks so much!!

Img_4916_thumb Michelle, you could use the grid method to scale them.

Img_4916_thumb What is the grid method?

Profile_picture_71058220_small

Christine B says...

@ 09:31 on Jun 04, 2013

Img_4916_thumb Michelle, draw a grid on the image you want to enlarge - say 1/2 inch squared. Then, draw a grid on the material you're enlarging to - say 2" squares. Use the squares to help you transfer the image.

I too am very interested in purchasing the character's. Would love to buy them for my daughter's 3rd bday. Please let me know if they are still available. Thank You so much. Have a blessed day!

Img_4949_thumb Yes, I too would like to know where you got the sign and if you made it how?

@ 22:21 on Jul 13, 2013

Img_4949_thumb I made the Swiper sign with a scrap piece of plywood painted purple and white vinyl cut with my Silhouette.

Img_2341_small

Christine B says...

@ 18:59 on Jul 16, 2013

Img_4933_thumb Did you actually draw the cutouts? Or, did you have them printed and glue on? I'm stumped on how to make these. Any help would be much appreciated!!

Profile_picture_71058220_small

Christine B says...

@ 15:24 on Jul 17, 2013

Img_4933_thumb I used an overhead projector to project the images onto plywood, jigsawed out the image, sanded the board, and painted the characters. For the boards with the text, those are just painted with vinyl lettering on them that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

Hi, I know you told me the signs were sold a long time ago, but you wouldn't happen to have any prints of the characters you could e-mail me do you? Or tell me where I could find them at? Thanks again Amanda

Can I ask how you painted the characters? Thanks

@ 17:29 on Jul 29, 2013

Amanda, if you'll e-mail me at christinembyrd@gmail.com, I'll be happy to send you line drawings that I used. And, the characters were painted with plain acrylic paint. :)
