A Saturday Share...

These cute cookie sheets have been turned into magnetic boards. They make the cutest gifts! We have made these in the past for friends birthdays, Christmas gifts, secret santa gifts, thank you gifts, and also for teacher thank you gifts at the end of the year. We usually put photos in the frame, for example if I was giving it to a teacher...I would use a picture of my child with her teacher taken during the year. My daughter a couple of Christmases ago made these for 12 of her friends. She developed photos of them from various activities and outings and put those in the frames. You can purchase the acrylic frames at walmart & Michaels (they already have magnets on the back).

Then we bought round magnets and hot glued flat buttons or stones onto them to decorate them. We used designer scrapbook papers, ribbons, flowers, & brads to decorate them. My daughter typed personal notes about being friends for these two shown in the pictures and then used a magnet we found at the dollar store. (You can get 5 - 6 on a sheet and they were in the kitchen isle because they are actually made to hold bags of food or chips closed). We used the crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the lip of the cookie sheet (which we also found at the dollar store), and ran ribbon thru it to create a loop to hang it on your wall.
So your next trip to the dollar store...try and see things in a new and creative way! You'll be surprised with what you come up with.
