Homecoming… or HoCo…

as I learned it was called. This month my son asked me to help make him a sign to ask a girl to the Homecoming Dance. He told me he wanted the theme to be Sponge bob, so he downloaded the picture of the pirate from the internet and printed it out. From there, we used MTC to design the sign (drew a rectangle the size of the sign and designed inside that rectangle.) We also downloaded a free sponge bob font from the internet. Here it is:

Sorry the color is so bad on the picture. We worked on it the night before he presented it to her. We cut the vinyl out in green and then he wanted to use a marker to draw the square where she could check off her answer (notice there was no option for no) and he wanted a speech bubble.

He says this is a horrible picture of him, but here he is at school asking her to the dance.

I was told she isn’t a fan of taking pictures, but she did say yes and they had a great time together. Just as an aside: He has been in love with her since Kindergarten, but they have remained friends through out the years. He will probably clobber me for telling the inter webs that, so ssshhhhh. 🙂 🙂

Materials

Tagboard from Dollar Tree (50 cents! And vinyl goes on it great!) They also sell the foam core for a buck and that works great too!

green vinyl… from my closet… that dark and scary place

Spongebob font from www.dafont.com. It’s free. Cuts okay, the letter spacing is a little funky, but my son told me I wasn’t allowed to fix the kerning issues that were bugging me. 🙂

Until next month!
