Christmas Craftiness

I couldn’t post these until now because I was giving them as Christmas presents.  They are magnetic bulletin boards. 

I found some frames at A to Z, it is a huge store on each side of 71 hwy that has every imaginable kind of junk cheap stuff.  Tom painted the frames for me and cut the metal.  I covered the metal with fabric and made the magnets.  The girls I gave these to for Christmas like them!! 

Each board had matching magnets.  They were made from “gems” that you would put in vases, than I glued the matching fabric to them and then the magnet on the back.  I am happy with the way they turned out.  It was fun picking out the material for each person I was making the boards for.

I got this idea from Pinterest.  You should check it out if you haven’t already. Smile

Wow, you did a great job, Becky! Too bad we don't have an A to Z here... shoot, I'd settle for Walmart or Hobby Lobby... something, anything. Oh well, slim pickings come with the territory of being in the middle of the ocean.

I <3 me some Pinterest! It seems the only follow through I have from there is baking... lots and lots of sweets. :)
