Quick/Easy Bulletin Board Project


If you're looking for a quick and easy project to make a bulletin board, (say, to remind you of all the things you need to do for Easter, etc.), you've come to the right place. :-)

I needed a bulletin board to house important notices, but I didn't want it to be visible (as on a wall or fridge, etc.), so I made one to go on the inside of a cupboard door. Works like a charm!

Recipe:-

* 18" x 18" roll of sheet metal (has to be "steel", not aluminum)
* paper of your choice (I used "$ store" roll of giftwrap)
* magnetic sheet(s)
* clipart of your choice (I chose various veggies.)
* adhesive



At first, I thought I would use patterned paper, as a background, but it looked tooooo busy so chose to use the backside of the paper.

Wrap the "cut to size" sheet metal w/ the paper. I just taped it on the backside. Then I used clipart as a border. Cut rest of clipart and attach to magnetic sheet(s).

There you have it. A bulletin board that's "out of sight" but not "out of mind". ;-)
