...okay, so it's not a recent one but have been struggling to get decent photos of the finished project.
It's my "Happy Board".
The magnetic board on the side of my unit (http://scrappingandchatting.blogspot.com/2010/04/welcome-to-my-craft-area.html) held photos, notes, various bits & bobs from Charlie BUT Alfie seems to enjoy pulling them off so it's now used to hold finished or part finished layouts.
Unfortunately, this great idea left me with nowhere to put the photos.
It's made from a frame whose glass had broken.
As was wooden frame it didn't need any prepping, just rubbed white paint on with cloth.
The back board has been decorated in a paper with an easy to match pattern, as the length was just over one sheet.
A baking tray has been fixed with superglue (after sanding the back surface to make it rough which helps glue to hold) and voila!!
The baking tray has a lip which is great for holding spare magnets around the edge.
Talking of magnets, these have been made using my favourite Paperchase Wrapping paper (it's STILL going LOL).
Just covered an old cardboard box in the letters wanted,
Cut out circles using sizzix see through circle die,
superglued magnet to the back:
This one is scrapbook paper glued to magnetic paper, cut out using sharp craft knife and edges inked:
A quick, simple, cheap project.
I have to say a BIG thank you to Ros for the Crackle paint. Don't you love it when a Crafting Friend sends you something which you wouldn't buy yourself. I look at stuff like this and think I would love to have a play but daren't take the plunge, now want this paint in many colours... : )
