Chic Damask Magnetic Memo Board, Dollar Tree Crafting

Hey ladies, well I've been rummaging around the the Dollar Tree again, and yes I had to sneak in three bag of stuff!  I found the cutest little silver colored metal trays there that look like little fancy serving trays.  They aren't large, the oval tray which I used in this tutorial measures 12" x 8 1/2".

Supplies you will need:
Metal Tray
Scrapbook paper
Buttons, vintage jewelry - or what ever you wish to create the magnets
Glue - Elmers and E-6000
Mod Podge
Coordinating Ribbon

This little memo board is so... crazy easy.  In order o coordinate with my new little craft space I chose this black & white damask print Scrapbook Paper, which I bought for 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby.  First you will need to cut your paper to fit into the flat part of the tray, once this is cute glue down with Elmers.  I let mine dry for a day and then covered with Mod Podge.

For the shabby chic magnets I used pieces of vintage jewelry, a velvet ribbon rose and buttons that I had on hand.  All I had to do was glue a magnet to each one using the E-6000!

Once your little tray is dry, turn over and glue your ribbon to the back (I used E-6000 for this part), tie and big pretty bow and it/s ready to hang!  I used a Shabby Chic
1 1/2" satin ribbon that I already had on hand.
Have A Happy Week and Happy Crafting!
