Magnetic Memo Board...
Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Today I'm sharing this quick and easy magnetic memo board I made for my craft room. Somewhere to keep together all those to do lists and shopping lists. No excuse for missing deadlines now!
Take a cheap baking tray, I got mine from Poundland, it's about 8" x 12 ". Cover and decorate the base with patterned paper.
For the labels and memo holders I used accent stickers and brads, but you could use buttons or punched shapes as well
The magnets are from the website www.first4magnets.com - they very kindly sent me some free samples to use and review here on my blog.
I've used both the flexible self adhesive dots for the labels
and some small neodymium magnets from my selection box. Just stick the magnet to the back of the accent with a blob of quick dry epoxy glue. I used 'super glue'.
These magnets although tiny are very strong, no sliding down the board even with a few layers of paper between the base and the magnet.
If like me you haven't used magnets before in your crafting projects. The first4magnets website is well worth a browse. It has every type of magnet you could imagine and is jammed packed with information on how to use them. There's a whole section devoted to Craft and a vast selection of Adhesive magnets too.
