DIY Laundry Sign #CricutEveryWhere

Today is the last day to enter the Vintage Revivals inspired contest, sponsored by #CricutEveryWhere, actually it ends in a few hours.  You can find the details and rules here.

I was inspired by Vintage Revivals' DIY Light up Sign to create my own sign with a Cricut design, a 12"x12" shadow box and a light kit.

I did a quick search in Design Space using the keyword"laundry" and found the clothesline.  I used Cricut fonts for the wording and cut it on DCWV paper.  I then adhered vellum paper to the backside with Scor-Tape. In Mandi's tutorial, she sprayed the glass with frost paint. I found it easier and faster to use vellum.

I purchased a couple of light kits by Heide Swapp for special projects and this was one of them.  The light kit is battery operated on two triple A batteries.  I taped the lights to shadow box frame and with a Kraft knife, I notched a square on the backside so I can easily turn it on and off. 

Here is a quick glance at my project in Design Space:

Here's how it looks in the dark.
There are so many beautiful projects submitted, wish me luck!
