I know, it's barely summer and I am already doing a back to school countdown. But, wouldn't this be fun for Birthday, Vacation or any special and/or fun occasion. I just used an 8.5x11 cardstock. I cut the school bus and numbers from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge, laminated everything then I attached a strip of velcro to each side of the sheet and to the back of each number using E6000-love that stuff! I also glued some velcro to the center of the sign to attach how many days are remaining. And, I use the 6 and 9 interchanably so I only had to cut one of them.
