So I wasn't going to work on these until next week but I was so excited that I couldn't wait!! Ever since we moved into our new house I have been going crazy! We bought a new stainless steel fridge and little did I know, magnets don't stick to it! It makes me nuts! I am one of "those" people who have a million things all over their fridge! Zane's homework, Dr. Apt cards, pictures..... You name it and its there. I Love my fridge like that! For the last 3 months I feel like I haven't been able to keep track of anything. Weird I know. Anyway, I decided I needed a magnet board somewhere. I didn't want it just plain though and I didn't want to spend a fortune. That is where cookie sheets come in. Yep, cookie sheets. I have seen these all over the web.
I found all of the supplies for this, except the cookies sheets at Hobby Lobby.
Cookie Sheets- $8.00 for a set of two at Walmart,
1 1/2 inch Ribbon,
Hot glue gun, and gluesticks.
Start by measuring your fabric the correct height and then long enough to overlap in the back. Use strips of Duck Tape in the center of the back of the cookie sheet and then pull tight and wrap around.
Hot glue the end down onto the fabric. Then hot glue along the bottom and top edges.
Next cut two lengths of ribbon so that they will overlap in the back as well. Glue one end down onto the fabric, covering up the raw edge. Then wrap around, pull tight and glue down the other end. Do the same with the second length of ribbon.
Next, I centered two marks at the top of the cookie sheet and drilled two holes.
Cut a length of ribbon as long as you need and then thread through the holes on the back of the cookie sheet. Tie a bow, or just fake one!
These are so much fun! All of the different fabric choices are endless! Plus, I think it cost about $6 dollars to make.
