I found a brand new pattern holder at the thrift store for 50 cents. Since I forgot to take a Before picture, I will just have to describe it to you. I hope it doesn’t tax my powers of description to do so. It was a beige piece of metal about 8 1/2 x 11. Oh yeah, and it’s magnetic.
I turned it into this:
I got the paper and coordinating brads from the Creating Keepsakes Convention last October. They are by Kaiser Scrapbook. It took me this long to find the perfect project for it.
All I did was Mod Podge the paper to the metal board. I then cut off the brad part of the brads and hot-glued the pretty parts to magnets. The post-it notes also have a magnet on the back so the pad can be moved. (I got the pad from the Dollar Spot at Target back in February. I told you I have a problem with collecting stuff that I just know I’ll use sometime in the distant future.) I finished it off by hot gluing a ribbon to the back to use as a hanger – you can just barely see it at the top there.
I was hoping it would be used as a message center for Meat Galore to leave me little love notes. So far, all it has held is my Costco list.
