My mother had such beautiful handwriting and I decided it would be nice to make something similar for my sister for her birthday.
I used a note that I had from my mom, scanned the image, and then enlarged it by a bit. From here, my method is slightly different than the method used on the Reluctant Entertainer. So try the one you like best.
I printed the signature and then created my own graphite paper to transfer the handwriting onto a white tray (white tray from TJ Maxx).
To create the paper, I just rubbed a pencil on to a piece of tracing paper. I placed the rubbed side down on the tray and traced my mother's handwriting.
Once the handwriting was transferred to the tray, I went over it with my Sharpie black paint pen and with the pink paint pen, I added two small hearts. I wiped off the excess pencil from the tray and baked it at 350* for 30 minutes. Having baked it, the handwriting is permanent on the tray.
|Oops, I spy a typo---it's "rubbing"|
Sorry about that one
It was a simple craft that I thought would be a nice way to remember my mom, her handwriting, and how much she loved my sister.
