friday creative

it's week 3 of getting organized (and of course displaying photos) with bulletin boards! this week's board is another magnetic one and i have to say, i'm totally smitten with it. i made it for my best buddy tammy t and now i'm pretty sure i'll be making more. check out our game board bulletin board...supplies:
-game board (your favorite, vintage or new)
-tin sheet (you can find these at your favorite craft store or hardware store in assorted sizes to approximately fit your game board...i used a 12x12 to fit my scrabble board)
-strong liquid adhesive (like quick grip)
-strong magnets & game pieces to adhere to magnets if desired
-photos & notes

how to:
-adhere tin sheet to the back of your game board and set aside to dry (perhaps with something heavy on top if it's handy).
-while you're waiting you can use the same adhesive to adhere game pieces (like adorable little scrabble tiles) to heavy duty magnets. set those aside to dry and make sure to space far apart on your table so they don't "jump" together and pull apart before the adhesive is dry.
-when all your glue is dry, add photos and notes to your new, super duper game board bulletin board!

happy friday!

This is a very cool idea Carly! I'm going to ask for a photo session with you for Christmas from our families. :)

I'm so very sorry about Treasury closing. I will really miss seeing you...and crafting with you.

Hug, Kristie Hubbard
PS- Thanks for the hug the other day- I sure needed it.
