It’s Time to get Organized…

With school starting this week for my boys… I always feel like this is the time to get organized. This is a fun bulletin board that is multi-functional. It is a push pin board for notes, has a frame to clip business cards to or other items, and it has a place for me to put my keys. Plus I love how beautiful it turned out. The color scheme is great for our entry.
With the challenge this week using items from our local dollar store, I purchased this wire fence material for $.99.
It worked out great because at the end of each section the metal frame was bent so that it could connect multiple sections. I just took pliers and opened it up a little more so that is would be perfect for keys.
Here are the instructions:
1. Use a push pin bulletin board for the frame. This will allow you to use push pins to stick notes on the right side of the board. This is one from my office that I don’t use any more. What a great way to repurpose and reuse.
2. Adhere patterned paper to the bulletin board (you could also use fabric, newspaper, or wrapping paper… if you want that craft paper look you can always use a brown paper bag from the grocery store).
3. I used two sections of the garden fence and tied them together with black ribbon. Then use pliers to open up the clips for your keys.
4. I then used packaging tape to adhere it to the bulletin board on the left hand side of the board.
6. Add lace trim tied in a bow to cover up the tape. Add a flower embellishment.
7. Use the Fancy Frames cartridge and cut out the shape that resembles the Eiffle Tower. I cut it out to 5″ and adhered it to lower right corner of the board. Add a flower embellishment.
I hope you enjoyed the project… have a great Thursday!
