Pizza Pan ~Into~ Magnet Board

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:

magnetboard

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:

012

I sprayed primer along the outside edge of the pan and on 4 magnets:

013

Next came Ivy Green spray paint:

017

(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:

015

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:

018

Then my perfectly fitting paper:

019

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:
