Heather Leopard (Blog: Heather Leopard | Instagram: @heatherleopard | Pinterest: @heatherleopard | Twitter: @heatherleopard) had so much fun helping her daughters create a lemonade stand using the #SUMMER collection!
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.

Step 1: Gather an assortment of banner styles and colors from the DIY Shop collection, along with 3" doilies (American Crafts has some great Silhouette files), and cut banner 1" x 5" long strips from the #beachtowel paper. Layer the banner strip and doily over the large banners and staple or adhere with adhesive.
Step 2: Cut large letters, approximately 2 1/4" h x 2 1/2" w and adhere them over the doilies using foam dots. Add a selection of embellishments from the #summer collection to really make the banner stand out.
Step 3: Display in a prominent place and be ready for people to flock to your 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.
And there you have it!
Just add lemonade, treats, kids, and FUN! They are sure to have a blast and learn a lesson or two about running a small business.
