Inspirational Sign

A little while ago I heard a saying that has stuck with me ever since. It is something I need to remember and something I want to teach my kids. I decided to make something for my daughter to put in her room so she can see this every day for the rest of her life. She can't read now, but I explained to her what it said and what it meant when I gave her this. Then when she can read she already knows!


Since I have kept you waiting long enough, here is what the saying is:

I want to teach her that, especially when she gets older, she doesn't need to try to be anyone else but herself, because SHE is the most beautiful person! 



Today I am going to show you how I made this cute sign for her!!


How I Made It:

I had a frame on hand that I got at a local thrift store awhile back that I wanted to use for this. 


First, I spray painted the frame pink. I took the back out of the frame and got to work. I put 3 coats of paint on. 


In between working on the spray painting, I got on my computer to do the rest of this project.

I saw a cute project that Lindsey at Southern Lovely had done with some super cute paper. After reading through her post I found out she printed this paper for free off the interenet. I had to go check out this site. Let me tell you...it is AMAZING!! There are all sorts of different papers, patterns, and colors for you to choose from and all for FREE! You will have to go check it out. Link is below.

-I printed off the spritzed stencil chevron paper HERE at Mels Stampz
-The purple polka dot paper is scrapbook paper I had on hand
-I designed the beyoutiful tag in my photoshop on my computer. If you don't have that, I think picmonkey would work too.


I used a glue stick to glue all of those together.


When that was done, I put it in the frame and closed it up!
Super easy!

I love how the whole thing came together and I'm so excited to get it put up in her room!

  2. I love the colors and pattern you picked for this-very cute! My absolute favorite part of the project is the message this sends. I have two young girls, and this is something I try to constantly remind them of.....that everyone has beauty and worth in their own unique way. Such a cute idea and I'm glad you shared. :-)
