Scalloped Edge Acrylic Sign

I love acrylic...yep, I will say it again. I love acrylic! When I received this fun acrylic sheet I knew I wanted to make some sort of home decor sign, but was not sure what...since we had about 4 feet of snow in the last 2 became a winter sign.

To heat emboss acrylic is not tough. You just have to pay attention and be sure that you don't over heat it so it warps. Want2Scrap has thick, quality acrylic so it worked like a charm. I simply used a watermark pad and ran it around the edges. Sprinkled on the embossing powder and heated it. I love the snowy winter look this added to my sign. Here is a close up of the edge.

Here are a few of the products I used on this project...

To dress up my flowers I added Stickles, glitter, micro-beads, spray ink and crushed much better than just plain flowers, don't you think?

To simulate snow, I added lots of Want2Scrap pearl bling in 2 sizes as well as tri-dots of Stickles to add a little winter detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you were inspired to work with a little acrylic today!
