If your lines aren’t perfect when you pull off the tape, it’s no big deal! Just take a small craft paint brush to go back & touch them up!
Then, using my cricut machine & some white cardstock, I began cutting out the letters & numbers for the scoreboard….
If I remember correctly, I think the letters/numbers on the top & bottom row of the scoreboard were cut at 1 inch & the larger letters/numbers in the middle rows were cut at 2.5 inches! As far as the font, I used the George & Basic Shapes cartridge.
Then I just used a craft glue stick to adhere the letters to the foam board….
I just used the lines that I had painted as my guide for making sure that my letters/numbers went on straight.
And this is how it turned out….
You can see a difference from when I first started cutting out the letters to the finished product….I ended up changing the top line from “Parker Field” to “Diehl Field” (our last name) just to make everything fit a little bit better!
All & all, I was very pleased with how it turned out & I think that it made the perfect backdrop for the cake & “concessions” table….
I hope you found this tutorial useful!! It really was a cinch to make!
Now that I have finished posting about Parker’s birthday, maybe I should start thinking about Griffin’s!! Eeek!! It’s a month from tomorrow!!
Am I the only one planning birthday parties this summer?!
Looking for more party ideas?!
