Last Sunday in the Sunday Showcase I saw this posting by the very talented Jennie of Cinnaberry Suite and I said that I had to do this. These memo boards are just so cute. So here is what I came up with:
I went to the Dollar Tree and there were NO cookie sheets. Really? None? Yes NONE. But they had Pizza Pans. AND they were 12” so I thought, ok my paper will fit using only one sheet, lets see what I can come up with. So here is what I did:
I sprayed primer along the outside edge of the pan and on 4 magnets:
Next came Ivy Green spray paint:
(Dont mind the overspray from my memo board project)
While that was drying, I used a plate to make a circle on the back of my paper. The inside of the pizza pan is 11.5” and my plate is 11.25” so I was pretty close:
That picture up there is actually of an oops. I had traced a pan that was 12” and when I cut it out, it was too big. Then I actually measured the inside of the pizza pan and redrew the circle and cut. So pretend this is right, k?
Next came the Mod Podge:
Then my perfectly fitting paper:
Next I hot glued cording to the inside edge of the pizza pan. I did not photograph this part and I have no vampire excuse this time =)
I punched out one 1” circle and mod podged it to one of the painted magnets. Then I glued a thumb tack with E6000 to the magnet part in the back to make this a pin back so I could put it up on the wall. Lastly I hot glued ribbon to the back of the board. I also cut 2 butterflies and hot glued them in the same area as my cording meeting, so you cannot see the way it sits ( Its not pretty). And voila, a hanging pizza pan turned magnet board:
That’s one of my favorite pics of Kam when he was smaller. Time flies!
I’ll be linking to these great parties found here.
I'm entering this magent board at the CSI Project.
