Back-to-School Memo Board

Get organized this school year with a Memo Board. It’s both a chalkboard and a magnet board, all in one! Hang it near a door, and you’ll never forget another appointment… or lunchbag!

MAKING THE MAGNETS:

1 Cut your paper to the size of the glass tiles by tracing around the tile and cutting inside the line. You can even write numbers or letters in marker on your circles.

• 12”x12” Photo Frame • 12”x12” Metal Sheet • Scrapbook Paper • Roll of Sticky-Back Chalkboard • Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch 2x Paint & Primer in Satin Lagoon • E6000 Adhesive • Mod Podge Gloss • Glass Tiles • Ceramic Disc Magnets

2 Using Mod Podge, paint one side of the tile and stick the paper to the tile, and then paint the back of the paper.

3 Once the Mod Podge is dry, glue a magnet to the backside of the paper using E6000. Allow 24 hours for glue to dry.

MAKING THE MEMO BOARD:

1 Take glass and backing from frame and spray with paint. Allow at least 1 hour to dry before touching.

2 Cut the Sticky-Back Chalkboard material to size and cover the metal sheet with it. Be sure to carefully place it onto the metal sheet by slowly peeling off the backing a little at a time, smoothing it out onto the metal sheet as you go. It helps if you have another person for this. If you get a bubble, pop it with a straight pin and smooth the air out through the hole.

3 Place the covered metal sheet into your frame.

Hang your Memo Board on the wall, write a sweet little note in chalk, and post a few notes with your magnets!
