Magnetic Memo Boards

I'm so excited to share these. Not because I think they are something spectacular but because they were so simple and inexpensive that I hope everyone will give them a try! I found some steel baking sheets (it has to be steel so that the magnets will work- no aluminum) at my local dollar store. The round ones are 12" pizza pans and I also bought a couple of 9"x13" cookie sheets.

I used Mod Podge to adhere down some patterned paper that I cut to fit in the pans, then I embellished each one. I cut out the word "enjoy" on my Cricut in cream card stock, then sprayed it with sugared maple and a little pomegranate Glimmer Mist. I added a couple of Prima leaves too.

On this one I used Prima lace trim that I dyed with sugared maple Glimmer Mist and hot glued it around the edge.

The note holders are some regular clothes pins that I glued magnets to the back of, then I used some hot glue to adhere velvet ribbon on them. I made little grape clusters with some grape dew drops and a Prima rose leaf.

This one has a bit of a glare from the camera flash because the word is covered in glossy accents.

I painted these clothes pins black before I glued the ribbon on and added white Prima roses.

More Prima flowers and pearls accent this one.

I used Mod Podge to decopage the same patterned paper onto the clothespin magnets then added some Prima flowers and the Prima pearls.

I used Prima pearls and roses swirls to accent the swirls of the patterned paper.

You can cut the swirls apart very easily to get more out of a package!

This last one isn't finished yet, but I wanted to show you one of the rectangle sheets I've been working on. Since it is 13" long I had to use 2 sheets of paper. I used two different coordinating patterns and then covered the seam with some ribbon. I also used that ribbon on the clothes pins. But I've still got some more embellishing to do :)
I hope you've been inspired to give these a try!

These turned out beautifully!

Our local scrapbook store offered classes to make these into advent calendars (the cookie sheets) and it was a very popular class!
