Cricut Explore Air 2: Make Today Awesome DIY Vinyl Sign!

I received supplies from Cricut for this post.
All opinions are 100% my own.
Affiliate links included.
I love a great motivation sign for some back to school encouragement.
A great sign like this is valid any time of year!
DIY Vinyl Sign: Make Today Awesome!
 You will need:
Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
Holographic Vinyl in Blue
Wood board painted white
I designed this fun png image with the words I wanted to cut out.

It's easy to upload the png file into Cricut Design Space™
Then position it to the size you like.  I made mine fit sideways on the 12 by 24" mat.
Then have the machine cut it out!
Instant magic!
Peel off the excess vinyl and get ready to place on your board.
I had my son run out to the garage and cut me the perfect board that I coated in some white chalk paint.

I used transfer tape to place the vinyl down on the wood board.
Then press down with the scraper tool.
Peel back the transfer tape for utter perfection!
I love the shimmer and shine from this vinyl!
They list it as holographic vinyl, but I would call it iridescent.  I love it!
I love that in different angles and levels of light it looks light pink, blue and gold!
Hang it up in a bathroom or bedroom for the perfect morning daily inspiration!

DIY: Pipecleaner Crown Headband

 DIY: Pipecleaner Crown Headband
This is a fun and fast craft for summer camps, a fun activity day, youth group or birthday party favors!  I love crowns and tiaras.  Every year on my birthday I wear a crown and make my kids call me "your majesty".
 You will need 5 pieces of metallic pipecleaner per headband and one metal headband.
Bend the pipecleaner in half around a pencil and twist it around itself.  Remove the pencil to make the circle shape at the top of the peak.
 Repeat for all 5 pipecleaners.
 Wrap the ends of the pipecleaner around the headband and twist them around themselves.
 Repeat for 3 of the points.
 Add the last 2 points in between the 3 points.
You can cut them shorter or just twist them around the others more.
I did a dab of hot glue on the base of each point on the headband, just to keep them from sliding, but you can just wear it as is.  Good to go, and about a 15 minute craft!
 Super cute!  You can decorate with plastic rhinestones or beads too!
  Such a great summer craft!
