Fiesta Book Fair

It is that time again - The Book Fair at my son's school!

This year the theme is Fiesta!  I make one large sign, and three smaller signs to promote the event.  The school provides the large paper for the window sign and the large construction paper for the smaller signs.

I love volunteering my time this way - I get to be creative!!!

I started out searching my Gypsy as this is my third year making these signs and my first time since getting my cameo.  I did search in the Silhouette Store too!  I found some images I liked on both - so I used both!  A girl needs choices!!

I purchased this image from the Silhouette Store.  I cut it diagonally in order to make it as big as possible on a 12x12 mat.

I just moved the top layer into the picture, but I cut them out separately.

I also purchased these from the Sil Store - it is a banner.  I did not use the ribbon because my banner has more than 5 flags.  I cut these out in 4 different bright colors.

I used the font Wide Latin to size and cut out Book Fair.

The rest of the letters are cut from the font LD Mon Cherie and sized to 2.5 inches.

And from my Gypsy I used Fiesta for some images.  Fiesta is a digi cartridge that was a freebie the very last time I updated my Gypsy Girl, but it is available in Cricut Craft Room.

Here are the chili peppers.  I cut out 4 at a time.

I cut out maraccas.  I cut several colors of the layers so the Media Specialist can use them on other signs as well.

I cut out some pinatas too.  I made one at 11.5 inches to include on the large sign.  The rest were smaller to use on other signs as well.

I make 3 small signs promoting Blimpie  night including the menu.

The large sign is made using large rolled paper from the school.  This is on my 6' table.  I kept it simple so parents can read from their cars as they drop off their children.

I did add some orange circles to the pinata since there was a lot of red!

Get ready to Fiesta!!!
