Turn your family rules into home decor. A simple DIY craft tutorial idea, a family rules board is a great reminder that looks great on the wall!
KIDS! I am sure my little devils are nothing like your sweet angels. My kids are constantly fighting, yelling and jumping all over the furniture and I have had it! A couple of weeks ago during Family Home Evening we talked about following rules and respecting each other. Together, we came up with some family rules. We wrote them down on a large piece of paper and then everybody signed that paper, showing their agreement with the new rules.
Now that we all agreed on these new rules, we narrowed it down to the top 6 that we thought were the most important. I took these 6 rules and created our Family Rules Board.

I first created what I wanted it to look like Silhouette Studio Software.
I love using vinyl. It is so easy to use and it looks nice too. I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the vinyl.
It would have been difficult to put the whole thing on the cork board at once so I cut it up a little so I could apply piece by piece.
Remove the negative vinyl just leaving the words.
Take transfer tape and with the sticky side down stick it to the right side of words. The transfer tape allows you to move the vinyl stickers without doing them one by one and not stretching the vinyl.
Remove the paper backing so all you have are the words stuck to the transfer tape.
It is hard to see in this picture but if you look carefully you can see the transfer tape as I was apply the words to the cork board.
Remove the transfer tape and the words stick to the cork board. It is magic (ok, not really. But it does make it very easy).
I really love how it turned out!
It looks great on the wall above the Family Home Evening Board. Now if I can just get my kids to read the board every 5 minutes!
