I love Disney Signage! My favorites are the classic styles from when the park opened. During the 50th Anniversary celebration I bought a T-shirt that had the original marquee design from Disneyland that served as inspiration for many scrapbook projects. One was a class at a local scrapbook store that recreated that sign as a paper piecing. This was before the era of digital cutters so all the pieces were made using the Creative Memories oval cutters, paper punches and clear label stickers with the fonts printed directly on them. It was a major undertaking to say the least.
Now that I have a digital cutter it is so much easier. I can create the signage with the basic shapes and a few fonts. Here's how I did it.
For the “Disneyland” lettering you can either cut the letters out of black card stock and mount them onto the colored boxes or cut the letter from the colored box and adhere that to a black square behind it, letting the negative space show through. I adhered the lettered boxes to the project with pop dots for added dimension. I used my Cri-kit pens to add the “Happiest Place on Earth” and “Est. 1955” lettering.
This paper piecing makes a great title for your scrapbook pages. I'll share some more paper piecings inspired by Walt Disney World next time.
