With help from my dad, who created the lemonade stand out of old pallets, my girls and I created a banner and 12×12 sign to brand their lemonade stand.

My girls wanted to create a little sign to display on their stand. This was a fun group effort as you'll see from the little helping hands in all the photos below.
 
Step 1: Their daddy cut a wooden board down to 12×12 while we gathered 2 sheets of busy patterned background papers and 3 sheets of tone on tone patterned paper, Mod Pdge, and some embellishments.

Step 2: Apply Mod Podge to the board and then lay your background paper over the Mod Podge. Use a straight edge to work out any air bubbles and to ensure the paper adheres well to the board.

Step 3: Cut a 10" – 11" circle, apply Mod Podge to the back of it and adhere in the middle of the 12×12 paper that is already adhered to the board. Use your straight edge again.

Step 4: Cut the words (4"h) and letters (2"h) and adhere to the circle. You can download "fun summer days" and the large circle cutting file I made HERE. Doodle some faux stitching and add embellishments.
