    Go to home depot and grab some lime green mickey head paint samples. That's a good place to start. Glue 2 together and laminate it some how. That's what i'm gonna do

    I saw posted on a couple of other threads that the Mickey paint samples are no longer available. Something about Home Depot no longer selling the Disney paint.

    1. Go to mickeyavenue (search on google) and download the font Waltograph UI. Once you've done that, make sure to install it.

    2. Open a document and type a `. This is the lowercase character on the key that also has the uppercase swirly-hyphen ~ (Idk what it's really called lol).

    3. Change the font size of that character to something larger, start at 72, for example.

    4. Now instead of the default font you typed it in, change it to Waltograph UI. Then you can modify the size and color to whatever you like.

    You can buy DIY buttons at the craft shops and make one to fit it; wear it around to see who recognizes it :).

    I picked up a good substitute at Home Depot. Check out BWHR Lime Pop S-G-400.

    If you see a blonde girl with a bright green Mickey and a birthday button, flag me down runway style! I'll be there March 1st and 4th!
