Normally, if we talk about numbers then we talk about the whole order. Even when we start to teach our kids about numbers, we will introduce them from 0 to 10. But maybe the number 3 holds a special place in some people's hearts so it is very important to discuss the number 3 especially that is the size of 1 inch.
As we all know, 1 inch is pretty small but we can do a lot with 1-inch number 3. For example, to make a birthday card. Of course, we will think that it is too small if only in the size of an inch. But what if we also make a cute small card? It will look so adorable especially for a 3-year-old birthday.
You can also make some appliqué and put it on your clothes or bags. You don't need to use a number 3 specifically but it's okay if 3 happens to be your favorite number. You can repeat the appliqué and you will get a very interesting pattern.
You can also use it in your calendar, diary, or journal. Journaling is a process where you need a lot of letters and numbers so why don't you use the number 3 in your journal?
You will need a template to draw the pattern. You can get the template online but you can also make it yourself just to make sure that the size is right. Carefully place the template on top of a wooden board. Carefully cut the board following the template. Remember, this is a pretty small size so you need to be very careful to get it right. If you are not familiar with woodworking tools, you better not do it yourself. You can cut the wood manually using a very sharp knife. Again, be very careful because this can be dangerous.
Now, after you get the rough cut, you can clean the cut and make it neat. You can sand it using sandpaper until the surfaces are all smooth and ready for further processing. You can paint the number or you can just use wood stain to keep its natural color and pattern. Apply the paint or stain carefully and let dry. Now you can use your cute little number three for whatever purpose you want.
