Magnetic Display Board

Well it's certainly been a while since I was last here, sorry 'bout that (been busy with all kinds of things & then I was sick as well).

Thought I would share this idea with you, which was inspired by a baking sheet noticeboard idea that Bronwyn Eastley had told me about.

I purchased a timber picture frame, removed the glass & asked my hubby to cut some metal sheet the same size as the backing panel.  I taped the sharp edges of the metal & then attached some homespun cotton fabric to the sheet using spray adhesive.  I popped this fabric covered sheet into the frame, followed by the backing board.

Voila, this is the end result:-

It makes a fantastic display board.  Now I just need to get some more pretty magnets, as I have already been back to buy another frame & I've "ordered" another metal sheet.   :)

If you would like to see more work from the ladies who made these cards, please visit Lynne, Christine & Nikki (& the one in the bottom LH corner is a favourite of mine).  :)

Hi Helen...I love the noticeboard idea...might have to try that one myself for my new craftroom.
I hope you are feeling better and have gotten over your illness.
Are you going to convention this year...hope we can meet
Cheers Suzie

Oh wow! This is much better than the cookie tray. What a beautiful addition to your craft room.
