This next Audrey inspired project is amaze. Like holy cow, can I really do that!? amaze. Well, I'm here to tell you that you can. Oh you definitely can. And while you might want to throw your exacto cutter out the window when you're done, with a little patience you too can create such total adorableness. We're even providing the sign templates below!
White foamcore
Exacto knife
Spray adhesive
Little eats/little treats template
8.5x11” paper
Wooden skewers



Download & print out the template. Or create your own sign using your favorite calligraphy font!


Spray the front of the foamcore with a light coat of spray adhesive. Gently press the template onto the foamcore and smooth out any air bubbles.


Place the foamcore on some scrap cardboard or other cutting surface, and cut out all the letters. This will take some time so you may want to pop in a favorite movie while you work! Try to work from the outside in, taking care to protect the thinner pieces from bends or tears. You can repair any accidents with a dab of hot glue.


Insert the pointed end of the skewers in the center of the foamcore, about 2” deep, until the foamcore can stand on its own. Tape the skewers to the back of a table so the signs stand upright.
