Things to Make: DIY Printable Family Rules

I've been working on some fun projects for our new house, and thought I'd share my latest with you!

I wanted to have a fun way to display our family rules in a prominent place in our home, and to add some color and a little more of our family's relaxed personality to our new space, so I created some font art - featuring our families rules! (And also one for our kids birthdays!)

So here it is:


  • A copy of the rules, printed on cardstock (click the link AT THE BOTTOM!)
  • Scrapbook paper in the colors and patterns of your choice (I cut mine into strips to fit my frame, using my paper cutter)
  • A thin piece of cardboard to mount the  rules on
  • Adhesive (I used Snail adhesive from Stampin' Up!)
  • A cute frame
  • Spray paint

I found a couple of really cheap used frames at DI (a local thrift store), for only $1 each, and spray painted them in some fun, bright colors. Then, I let the frames dry overnight. 

(They say the paint dries within 45 minutes tops, but since I knew I was going to be putting art into them I didn't want to risk things being sticky.) 

Next, for the art itself, I started by cutting out a bunch of strips of scrapbook paper.

Using the adhesive, I stuck the strips down on the cardboard, layering as needed, until it looked the way I liked it. 

Then I put adhesive on the back of the rules and layered that on top. The strips of paper made a fun, almost quilted-looking mat for the family rules.

After everything was stuck down, I just put it into the previously painted frame!  Easy-peasy!

Here's the final finished product!

So cute!

We have a very open floor plan so the kitchen, dining room, and living room are all open to each other.  I really love the open airy feel of it!  And you can see our rules from anywhere in the space!
