I whipped out a quick grow chart using my Cricut Expression and two cartridges. Who knew working with vinyl was so fun and so easy?!
(PS: here's a little sneak peek of the bed my husband and I built for our daughter! I'll put one more shot below...)
The bed is AWESOME. I will write a post with more photos to show it's ultimate coolness, but first we need to fix up the discoloration on the stairs. Word to the wise: if you use polyurethane on a painted project, make sure the type you purchase is not meant to 'enliven the natural glow of your wood' (aka: turn your white steps yellow).
Back to the grow chart for now! The flower is from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge. So cute.
The stem has little notches every inch to make measuring more accurate. I actually made the stem from a "border" option on the Wall Decor and More cartridge and it already had the notches programmed in. All I had to do was size it so the notches were 1" apart and voila! Grow chart!
I'm planning to make little leaves to add to the flower stem to mark each measurement we take, but I just slapped it on the wall a few minutes ago and no measurements have been taken as of now. I see more vinyl projects in the new future...
