Vinyl Lemonade Stand Banner

This fun banner has “Lemonade” lettering that I cut from vinyl on my 15″ KNK Maxx.  It was made for a lemonade stand that was used in a 1st grade play and later for a lemonade stand on the corner by my grandchildren.

The banner base,  measuring 36″ wide by 9″ tall, was made at a local sign shop for a very nominal price to my specifications, including the grommets.  The  Soopafresh font was a perfect choice because it has a casual, uneven bottom line as is shown on the finished banner.

Since the color of the letters was alternated,  they were cut one color at a time.  For accurate placement, I printed the design on my printer and laid that printout above the banner.  I masked and applied each letter individually, using the printout as a guide.  The finished banner was attached to the PVC frame with cable ties.

For storage it is important to remember to roll a banner to which vinyl has been applied to with the right side of the banner on the outside of the roll.
The center of the play, Lemonade!,  is the lemonade stand, owned by Mother Goose.  The other parts are played by characters from Mother Goose tales.  It is very cute.

The design for this lemonade stand came from Creating Cool Kids Stuff, which is no longer in print.  However, I have done a web search and find that they are readily available for a lot less than I paid for mine.
The assembly of the stand, designed for 1″ PVC, was very easy and the directions were excellent.  My only change was to make it a bit taller than the original design.  That, too, was easily done and should you decide to make one, email me and I will send you the specific changes in height, as well as the modifications made that allow us to store it flat, when not in use.

  1. The stand looks awesome! Vinyl is always so fun to work with. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • It wouldn’t have been the same without the banner, which was made possible because I have a Klic-N-Kut. 🙂 Thanks.

  2. Lookin’ Good, Lynn!! You do such cool things with your cutter. Your grandkids have an amazing Nana!!

    • So often my cutter is used just “because I can. 🙂 The KNK has added a whole new direction for me in the crafting world.

  3. What a FUN project Lynn! I betcha you are their favorite grandma!! 🙂 I love the colorful lettering…so eye catching.

    • I like to think I am the favorite Grandma, because I am the only one that crafts with them. It was a fun project that I’m sure they will remember. Thanks for the complements.

  4. This is so CUTE!!! I love it. I just bought a copy of the book on Amazon for $4. Thanks for your great work!!!

    • If you make the lemonade stand and have questions regarding the changes we made, please don’t hesitate to ask. The book is full of lots of other neat projects made from PVC. In my picture of the stand base look closely at the gap between the table top and the PVC going up for the sign. That was an error we made. But, in the future it will truly be lemonade made from lemons because that gap will facilitate it also being used as a puppet theater. All I have to do is add a curtain to replace the banner. How cool is that? Enjoy your book and good luck!
