Do dishes stack up in your sink because no one knows if the dishwasher is clean or dirty? Never mind that the dishwasher is inches from the sink and could easily be checked. No one will do it and so the dishes start lining the sink and countertop. To combat this problem, I created this "clean dirty" laminated magnet sign for my dishwasher.
I decided that the "dirty" would be in green, signaling it's ok to put dishes in the dishwasher; red for the word "clean" would mean stop or don't put dirty dishes into the dishwasher.
In the Cricut Craft Room, I laid out the clean and dirty wording as shown above so that I could lay out my green and red vinyl easily. I used vinyl because lining up the words would be so easy this way - just use the transfer tape and it goes on like a dream. The words are actually from the Cricut Word Collage cartridge and I went through and removed the other words using the "hide selected contour" feature.
I used the Cricut Craft Room Basics free cartridge on the Cricut Craft Room for the shaped background. It measures approximately 6" x 8". I wanted the sign nice and big so there would be no chance of mis-reading it. LOL!
I used the Provo Craft Your Story laminating machine to laminate the sign and keep it clean. I used scissors to cut around the shape.
Finally, after laminating, I added strips of magnet material to the back of the sign.
