There are some funny sayings out there! You’ve got to wonder where they all came from, you know?

Like who was the first person to say, “well butter my butt and call me a biscuit!” Haha
Or, “he’s only got one oar in the water”. lol
And how about….. “it’s so dry the trees are bribing the dogs”

So darn funny. 

Have you ever heard any of these before?

How about… mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy? ;)
I saw that and thought it would make a cute and funny kitchen sign, so I made one!

I love to use my Silhouette Cameo (<– awesome bundle here) to make signs these days. It’s just SO much easier and quicker!

There’s 3 ways that I do it:

  • use the vinyl letters that are cut out on the project
  • use the vinyl cutout — minus the letters — as a stencil
  • use the vinyl letters for color revealing

For this project, I used the color revealing.

That basically means I spray painted a base color (black) onto my board….

…which happens to be a thrift store cutting board.
The color I paint for the base is the color my letters will end up being. (black)

Then I use my Silhouette to cut out the graphic I created below.

I shared a tutorial on how I use my own graphics in the Silhouette program, here.

So, just as if I were going to use the vinyl letters on a project, I pull the large piece of vinyl off leaving the letters behind.

(don’t mind my “biscuits” there…I accidentally got them stuck to the vinyl and messed them up so had to recut that section)

Next you will apply the transfer paper over the letters and transfer them to the board.

Now, one more coat of spray paint….white…letters and all.

Next, remove the vinyl letters to reveal the black underneath!

Isn’t that cool?
This works great for those times that you want a fully “painted” look. (instead of just having vinyl letters stuck on)
I think it also gives a more defined edge than you’d get with the “stencil” technique.

But this is SO much easier than hand painting each letter, right?

I gave it a light sanding with very fine sandpaper to distress it a bit..and done!

Quick and easy, funny kitchen sign.

And here it is actually hanging in my kitchen. :)
