Creating this Patriotic Wood Plank Sign couldn’t be easier when you use your Cricut. Use the Cricut Knife Blade to cut thick chipboard and then adhere it to your store-bought wood plank sign. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
I use my Cricut to make the most awesome patriotic crafts. I created this wood plank sign using my Cricut Maker and Knife Blade to get this sign to look the way it does and I love it.
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut Knife Blade
- Cricut Chip Board
- 12″x12″ premade Wood Plank Sign
- Red and Blue Paper
- White Craft Paint
- Foam Brush
- Mod Podge or Xyron
- Cricut Patriotic Sign Stars Design Space File
Use your Cricut Knife Blade to cut the stars. Each shape took around 20 passes of the knife blade to ensure that it cut through the entire shape. Then use that same Cricut Design Space file to cut your paper stars to go on top of your Cricut chipboard stars.When using adhesive with the Cricut Chipboard, do not mix a wet adhesive with a dry adhesive. So I shouldn’t run the cardstock through my Xyron and then paint Mod Podge on top. I need to decide ahead of time what adhesive I’m going to use. Since the white craft paint has a metallic sheen to it, I’m going to just use some Mod Podge for the Cricut patriotic sign. Just paint the chipboard with Mod Podge and then lay the paper stars on the corresponding Cricut Chipboard stars. Next, use some more Mod Podge to layer your Cricut patriotic stars on top of each other.
I’m going to use some E6000 to adhere the star to the wood plank sign. This will make sure that my Cricut patriotic sign will last a long time.
You can only use the Cricut Knife Blade with the Cricut Maker. The Cricut Explore models do not have the force ability to use the Cricut Knife Blade. For all your Knife Blade questions, see this post here. Be sure to use a Strong Grip Mat and some masking tape for the edges.
