Easy Peasy Idea Board

This huge scalloped sheet of chipboard came with my supplies for the Scrapin' Book design team this month and I was instantly thinking up ideas. I settled on covering the ends with paper and filling the center with a 12x12 sheet of tin and a 12x6 sheet of adhesive cork. I was in awe my cropadile punched through the fairly thick sheet of tin but it worked like a charm! Then I made matching magnets with the scrap paper. I finished it of with some ribbon to hang it by and random buttons from my button jar.

I think I'm so impressed with this finished product just because of the sheer size. It's way bigger than a card, ha ha ha! Because it's so large it was very hard to photograph and my pictures just don't do it justice but I'll leave a little to your imagination. I'll be making another one soon that has a more grown up color scheme to hang in my craft room. It will be the perfect place to stick things that inspire me.

Really cute idea. I have a big magnetic board in my hold coupons, notes etc. For Christmas I got 12 magnetic tins I filled with my spices and labeled the fronts. This could work for that purpose too
