A little somethin somethin...

I finally worked on my magnet board some more over the holiday and I'm still not quite finished but here's some progress. I bought some magnet strips and punched holes with a regular office style 2 hole punch. I tried a hand held punch but it wasn't quite big enough. The magnet strips already had adhesive on one side, so I punched more holes out of scraps in the lighter shade of paper, stuck them on and viola - the perfect surface on which to write. Then I got really brave and started drawing pictures for the holidays, martini glass for NYE, heart for valentines, etc. I have more to draw and then I need to coat them in crystal lacquer for that extra umph. Still need to borrow a crop-a-dile to punch holes down the side for ribbon. Oh and instead of having all the months up top on a slider, I stuck the left over magnets from my hole punching on the tags & can just toss it on there....the extras store on the back. Genius!!
