If you are anything at all like me, then you have the occasional time when you forget to pick up something at the store or maybe you forget to make an important phone call. Well, with this super cute mini whiteboard on your fridge to inspire and remind you, forgetfulness will be a thing of the past.
First, gather the items you will need:
- mod podge
- pre-printed papers – I used papers from “Dreams of Spring”) by Kimeric Kreations
- a clipboard or large square of chipboard and bull nose/binder clip.
Because I was repurposing my clipboard from a project I had made a few years ago and no longer liked, I made sure that I really sealed it well with my mod podge using 2 coats and letting each coat dry in between before starting.
I cut my papers to size and glued them down with an adhesive runner before inking the edges of the board and adding another coat of modgepodge.
I could now pretend that I had this journaling spot and embellishment printed ready to go, but I didn’t so I quickly hooked everything back up and sized the spot and flower to fit my project and printed. I then cut it out with small sharp scissors so that I could get pretty close to the images. Once I was happy with the cutting , I inked the edges and ran it through my zyron 510 adhesive roller.
Next, I peeled the backing off and positioned the journaling area on the board. I then got my transparency and cut it to fit over the whole board.
Now comes probably the most nerve wracking part of the project, for me anyway, machine stitching around the edge of the whole board to keep the clear sheet on without ugly glue marks.
This turned out well, although you will need to be careful when machine sewing and may need to use a needle especially designed for thick fabric. Be sure to SEW SLOWLY.
And finally, add the last of your embellishments, stick a magnet to the back and there you have it… your very own mini whiteboard.
Thanks loads for looking and I hope you have loads of fun creating your own.
