Girls camp craft #2 - Subway art

For the second craft I put together for our Girl's Camp was a simple little subway art project based on our camp's theme.  Our theme was the word "SEEK" taken from the 13th article of Faith.  "We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent...if there is anything virtuous, lovely, of good report or praiseworthy, we SEEK after these things."  Obviously, I own a vinyl cutter and thus was able to do this craft really inexpensively.  I just donated all my time to the project.  Crazy amount of time, but it was worth is to work with those sweet girls.  Anyways, here are the instructions we gave the girls for the project.

SEEK Subway Art
1.      Choose a block of wood and write your name on the back
2.       Paint the sides and front of your wood black
3.       Sand the edges after the paint dries

 Apply your vinyl decal.
a.       Your decal comes in a sheet of letters made up of three layers.  (1) the top layer – or transfer tape (2) the middle layer – which are the letters themselves (3) the shiny blue backing layer
b.      Carefully peel of the blue backing layer.   Start at a corner and peel back slowly, carefully making sure the letters stay on the transfer tape

c.       Now position your decal on your painted wood square and make sure everything is centered.  Rub it onto the board.

d.      Slowly peel off the transfer tape, leaving the letters themselves on your wood square.

Your completed project should look something like this:
Hope you Love it!

  1. Hi! Thanks for all your craft ideas! We are also doing a "seek after these things" theme. I was wondering if you would be willing to make/sell the subway art vinyl. If so, how much would they be? I am looking at about 20 girls or so.

    I LOVE your craft ideas, so thank you for posting them.
