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.
