Celebrate dinosaurs and Jurassic Park with this hilarious velociraptor sign DIY tutorial that includes a free cut file. This is a sponsored post with StyleTech Craft vinyl.
My kids are crazy excited about the new Jurassic Park movie this summer. Since velociraptors feature so prominently in the new movies, I decided to make a funny raptor sign to put in our house. The magnet numbers can be replaced so they can have fun updating it when they like. StyleTech Craft has a massive line of chrome and metalized vinyls that are perfect for projects like this one.
Velociraptor Sign DIY Supplies
- Metal Craft Sheet
- Metalized Vinyl Sheets in a variety of colors
- Transfer Tape
- Velociraptor Sign Cut File (free for personal use only)
- Xyron Creative Station
- Yellow Cardstock
- Brown Stain
Cut and weed the pieces from the various vinyls. I used black for the lettering, metalized green for the raptor, and red for the rest. I cut the number squares from yellow cardstock.
First I placed a sheet of silver chrome vinyl on the metal craft sheet. I like the more subtle sheen it has, and it’s not as harsh as the metal sheet. Then I transferred the text and numbers using transfer tape.
I used my Xyron Creative Station with the laminate + magnetic backing insert. Then I trimmed around the numbers. Now the number of days can be changed easily with the magnetic number boxes.
I used a brown stain to age the velociraptor sign, so it looks like something that is in a place with lots of dinosaurs. First I brushed it over the entire sign, then I used a paper towel to smudge brown stain in areas and on the corners.
The last step was to use super glue to add a sawtooth hanger to the back. My kids all laughed when they saw this sign, and it will be fun to hang up and enjoy! Have fun crafting & creating with vinyl!
