If you've spent any time in farm or ranch country, chances are you're pretty familiar with John Deere, seller of farm equipment painted in bright green and yellow. I had the opportunity to tour one John Deere manufacturing plant in Moline, IL once with my brother-in-law. We were there to see his new purchase, i.e. "investment" come off the production line. I also had a John Deere wagon, given to me by my best friend that now is used to transport kiddos at the Arnold Palmer Children's hospital in Orlando. I sure did love that wagon!
So, this week, when The Little Red Wagon Box Template came up for The Cutting Cafe design team, I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate mine. I had some John Deere stickers in my stash and found some that would fit the wagon sides and back. I used the medium box template (there are three sizes) that came with the set to make a load for my wagon bed and then adapted the boxes a little to make crates. A few brushes with a brown ink pad for distressing and then, crate labels, compliments of the internet, and my Deere was ready for a run!
(Just a note, the file contains two types of wagon tongues and lots of accessories, like the "wooden" slats, for jazzing up your wagon!)
