Challenge #23 - Back to School with Yumi & Fumi Handmade

Hi folks,

It's Sunday so that means I am sharing my Team Fumi creation for Challenge #23 over at the Yumi and Fumi Handmade Challenge Blog.

Challenge #23 is a "back to school" themed challenge and you have until this coming Friday to link up your challenge entries at the Y&FH challenge post for a chance to win!

The minute I saw the subject for this challenge I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to make - a picture frame "white board". Not sure what that is? Well, here you go!

These fun little message boards are so easy-peasy to make. Take a clear, clip style picture frame - whichever size suits your needs. You can go as big (mine is 10 inches by 12 inches) or as small as you like. Then put together a fun layout - just be sure to leave some spaces to write your reminders or messages. Since this IS a picture frame it already has the spots on the back from which it can be hung on the wall in your child's study area. Or, you can attach some heavy-duty rare earth magnets to the back to stick in a school locker or on the refrigerator.

Be sure to use white-board or wash-off markers so your messages aren't permanent!

project details:
  • finished size: 10 x 12 inches, clip style acrylic photo frame
  • patterned paper: Bo Bunny "Learning Curve". I have been holding on to these 12x12 papers in my stash for such a long time just for the chance to do a project like this!
