For the longest time, I really wanted to own a pretty memo ribbon board. I had a boring cork board with equally dull thumbtacks. The ribbon boards were so pretty, functional, and customizable to your needs. Then when Pinterest came around, there were tons of tutorials about how to make all types of memo boards!
When I saw the tutorial for a magnetic memo board made from a cookie sheet, it was immediate inspiration. However, being the overly detailed crafter that I am, I decided to make it a huge project. The upside is, here's a tutorial about how to make your own magnetic inspiration board!
- Cookie sheet
- Frame (or cabinet door) slightly larger than the cookie sheet
- Cardboard, if the cookie sheet is not perfectly flat
- Cotton batting
- Upholstery nails
- Blank sheet of paper
- Rubber Mallet
- Embellishments (paint, vinyl, stickers, etc.)
By the way, my project materials came to me while walking through IKEA. A couple of As-Is cabinet doors for $4.99, and cookie sheets for $6.99. I could have probably gotten the materials for cheaper at the dollar store, or with a bit of searching but I was antsy to start! Also, I got two of each since I was trying out a new project from scratch and was sure to make some mistakes.
