So let's get to hopping!
If you need to start at the beginning of this blog hop, go to Crystal's blog to start. If you have come here from AJ713's blog, then you are on the right track. If you just have no idea where you are, there is a listing of all the participants at the end of my post.
For my project, I am using the School Borders printable stamp set. I had so much fun with this set, the hardest part was deciding which of these great borders to use.
MY PROJECT - DRY ERASE SCHOOL MEMO BOARD
My grandson started Kindergarten this year so I made this dry erase school memo board to help keep track of all those upcoming notes, papers, activites & forms. I used my Gypsy and welded his name to a rounded corner rectangle and cut it four times, twice out of chip board, once out of the background paper, and once out of a backing of a coordinating color cardstock. Then I cut just his name out of the same backing paper, and just the rectangle out of clear acetate card stock. Next I layered everything together except the acetate. I attached Regina's cute back to school border and those yellow pencils which I had colored with copics - then the acetate goes on top of everything. I attached a few eyelets, some clips for hanging artwork, school calendar or whatever, and a dry erase marker. Done! It is quite sturdy with all the layers. You can either put hangers on the back for hanging on the wall or magnets for the fridge - I will let my daughter decide which one she wants.
The finished memo board is about 8x10.5 inches. I will post more details on this project in a day or two, so check back later if you are interested in those details.
I will be posting another project later using these borders - wait until you see!
