Decorate To Celebrate - Menu Board

Happy Wednesday!!!

Welcome to another year of

We have a few new DT members too!
Make sure to check out their blogs and follow them :)

Remember we made some changes last year
and made every challenge
Anything Goes!
We just ask that if you create cards,
they have a 3-D effect (i.e. box cards, tri-fold, etc.)

So here is my first project of the year
in hopes of getting more organized in the kitchen :)

A Menu Board

This is super easy to make!
All you need is a cookie sheet from the $1 Store,
Mod Podge, Clear Stones (about 1" in diameter), magnets,
super cute papers, and cardstock.

I cut the letters using George and
the boxes you can make from TBB&M or TBB&M2.
I just used black and white cardstock for these.

Cut your papers to how you want them to fit on your board.
This is a great way to use scraps :)
Then Mod Podge them to the cookie sheet.
And if it seems that there are bubbles in it,
they actually will go away and the papers will dry flat.
(Speaking from experience on this one)

The boxes were adhered with double sided tape after
all the paper was dry.

Cut paper to fit under the clear stones and Mod Podge
the letters and paper to the back of the stones.
Then glue the magnets on, I used Mod Podge for that too!

I cut a bunch of small strips of cardstock
so I could write the dinners on them.
I put them in the top box and fill out the board
with what we will eat that week.
When we are done with the
week, they go in the bottom box.
Hopefully this will eliminate duplicate dinners
so close together, and we can have a fun rotation of meals :)

I punched two holes in the top to create a "hanger" out of ribbon.

I am thinking of making another one of these
but it will be a "GOAL" board.
We'll see :)

I hope that you will join us over at Decorate To Celebrate
for our first challenge of the year,
and remember it's
Anything Goes!!!
