[DIY] Emoji Signs

After finding emoji stickers in a vending machine in Vegas, it started to seem perfectly normal to flash emojis at people during face to face conversations (Pro tip: It's not). But because we only got a few of them, and they were still pretty small, I decided to create these larger emoji signs for practical everyday use. Whether you want to use these as photo booth props, or to flip off the car that just cut you off, these emoji signs are super simple to make and can be used for so many things!

You will need:
Google Images
White Cardstock
Tongue Depressors or Popsicle sticks
Google images of emojis to find the ones you want. Choose the images with the best resolution. In your computer's editing software, crop as close to the image as possible without cutting it off and rotate each image so that they are all facing either "portrait" or "landscape".

Print your images on white card stock. When choosing your printer settings, choose the option that fits two images per page and select auto rotate.

Cut out your emojis and glue tongue depressors to the back, about an inch up from the bottom of your emoji symbol. 
This DIY was so simple but SO fun! If you have an iPhone, you know emojis can be so personal and have the ability to convey all the right emotions when you can't find the words. As soon as I finished mine, I hopped on SnapChat and annoyed all of my friends with a hundred silly pictures.
Tweet me photos if you make this DIY! I would love to see which emojis you decided to use.
