Growing up, I was a huge fan of pretty much any book written by Chris Van Allsburg but my absolute favorite was The Polar Express. What kid wouldn’t love the idea of a magical train picking you up to go to the North Pole to meet Santa? This Polar Express Bell Sign celebrates all of those wonderful childhood memories but is still super easy to make with my free cutting file!

Step 1. Apply a couple light coats of the Matte Finish to the front of the wood tag. While that’s drying, use the “Polar Express Bell Sign” Free Silhouette File to cut the words from the red glitter vinyl. I had to adjust the blade setting to be slightly higher than standard vinyl (2) to cut perfectly through the glitter vinyl.
Step 2. Use paper transfer tape to get the words on the wood sign. You shouldn’t have a problem with them sticking thanks to the matte sealer.
Step 3. Add a new ribbon and bell to the top of the tag. I actually glued my bell in place so that it wouldn’t cover any of the wording but the choice is yours.
Step 4. Hang on any door knob so that when ever the door is opened, everyone knows you still believe!
Totally easy, right? We’ll be loving this Polar Express Bell Sign for many years to come! Don’t forget to enter to win $50 from Expressions Vinyl below!
