Saturday Morning Memo Board

Making Saturdays Special..

Make family time more special with this cute memo board.

Now that the kids are starting to head back to school, weekends are more important than ever.

It’s nice just being together.

Whether I post a reminder about a fun event or a special note to say “I love you,”

this memo board helps me remember that Saturdays should be a little more laid back –

just the way I like it.

To make the Memo board I used…                     (*amazon affiliate link)

Directions:

  1.  Measure and cut the cork tiles to fit inside the frame.
  2. Because my frame was deep, I cut a piece of foam board the same size.  I glued the cork tiles to the foam board using liquid glue.

3.  Lay fabric over cork to determine letter placement.  Gently slide cork from underneath fabric and iron letters.

4. Spray the cork with adhesive and smooth the fabric over it.

5. Tap in a few tack nails inside the back of the frame to hold everything in place.

Framed Magnetic Family Memo Board

A decorative alternative to the family refrigerator.

This picture of me with my grandsons is one of my favorite photos.

It’s been hanging around on the fridge for a couple of years now.

I decided to make a Framed Magnetic Memo Board that I can hang on the wall and swap out photo’s

in the magnetic frames when ever I feel like it.

  • I started with an old picture frame with the glass removed.
  • I adhered the Magnetic Craft Sheet from Deflecto using double sided adhesive on the frame backing with the black magnetic side up.
  • Next, I covered the black magnetic sheet with a “thin” piece of plaid scrapbook paper and inserted it back into the frame.  (TIP:  using thin paper is the key to the magnetic sheets sticking together)
  • To make the frames:  Cover magnetic sheets with scrapbook paper. Cut magnetic sheet with craft knife and mat or use a wood die cut frame to cut out the frames.
  • You can also create small word magnets using scrapbook paper and the magnetic craft sheets.

Thin metal dies will not work to cut the magnetic sheets, but it would be a great way to store them!

Creating a Decorative Display Board for all my Little Pretties

Smoothfoam Display Board 07114

My project started as a Memo Board and… 

While I was looking for some push pins I stumbled across a collection of little pretties.

Tucked away in a cabinet along with a lot of other embellishments were these little

metal frames.  Something that I’d been hoarding since my K & Company days.

I added those frames along with some other little pretties onto my board.  (Love!)

  4. Wrap and glue the fabric around the back of the Smoothfoam.
  5. Glue the frame onto the front of the covered Smoothfoam.
