Paper display sign

This nice sign is incredibly quick, easy and inexpensive to make.

Ages: All. Materials: two pieces of blank paper and a copy of the Shelton-Mason County Journal. Tools: scissors, glue stick. Difficulty: beginner. Cost: very low. Time: up to an hour, probably much less.

1. Cut

Stack two pieces of paper, fold in half and cut a swooping shape.

2. Separate

Pull the middle piece out, then glue along the outer fold edge. Press folds together.

3. Open

Unfold the sign structure. Adjust as needed.

4. Detail

Trim out some of your favorite elements from the Shelton-Mason County Journal &/or other sources. Glue down.

5. Sign

This sign features the two copies each of the Crafty Time heading, Fun Pages heading, Shelton-Mason County Journal flag and Belfair Herald flag. The four sides make it visible from any direction, 360 degrees.
