It's a Steal on Steel!

I know I know...kinda cheesy - but I had to!
Today we are giving you one item, two options!
4x6 or 8x10 - perfect.

Throw them in a cute frame,
create a cute pedestal sign,
create a chore chart,
make a message board,
do anything!

I'm dyin' over this stuff... After making my pretty cute (ya..I'm bias) bottlecap magnets, I kind of "need" a new magnet board.. Thinking of covering it in favorite, framing it and LOVING it!

This is part two of my tutorial explaining the chore chart system I have started using.  Last time I showed you how easy it was to make the bottle cap tokens.  This time I am explaining how to make the "help wanted" chart.

This project is quick and easy and can be adapted for lots of uses:

1.  Paint a rectangle of wood (I buy a bag of craft wood at the craft store).
2.  Cut a piece of cardstock to fit the wood and adhere it with modge podge.
3.  When it dries, sand and ink the edges of the paper.
4.  Use E6000 to glue a sheet of metal to the board (available at Mindy May's Market).
5.  Embellish as desired.
6.  Display on an easel (also purchased from Mindy Mae!)

This would also be a fun way to display pictures or little notes.  It could be glued to one of the fun frames available at Mindy Mae's:

Or glued on to one of the awesome candlesticks from Mindy Mae's to make a unique photo display:

Have fun creating!  I hope you'll check back later for part three of my tutorial!
