Day 13: Legos

Well, we’re back from our mini-vacation, meaning that we’ve got stable internet access. We missed a day as we were traveling back so you’ll find two posts tomorrow as an IOU!

For today, we’ve created a lego theme. They’re super simple to make, and you will be able to bring the nostalgia of childhood memories into your community.

Legos! Day 12 of the 30 Day Inspiration Challenge.

What you’ll need:

You’ll additionally want to have a glue gun or foam tape and a sharpie. You can mix and match the colors of the card stock. Don’t have a circle punch? Don’t fret. You can simply use a circular object such as a lid to trace around. This circle is approximately 2 inches in diameter. Our card stock has been pre-cut into 4.5″x5.5″7″x4.5″ pieces.

Steps:

Legos! Day 12 of the 30 Day Inspiration Challenge. 1. Using the circle punch, cut out six circles from the card stock.

2. Place the adhesive onto the back of the circle. If you’re using a glue gun, drop a large dot of glue in the center of the circle. Allow it to cool a bit and then place onto the top corner of the other cut sheet of card stock. Press down softly, allowing the circle to stick out just a bit. If you are using foam tape, simply adhere the tape onto the circle and press it onto the cardstock.

3. Repeat step 2 until all of the circles are places onto the card stock. Place the resident’s name onto the bottom right corner circle. We’ve added variety by cutting the card stock into a smaller square and only using four circles.

You can even print their names out using a lego type font.
