A couple of months before Convention I was asked to make a special project for the Operation Smile Silent Auction. It was such an honor to be asked, and I couldn't turn them down. After a week of thinking on what I wanted to make-I decided on a Magnet board. A REALLY LARGE MAGNET BOARD! (Although this picture shows the project up and down, I designed the project to hang long ways on the wall.) Keep in mind a great place to display scrapbook pages or cards!
Getting a good picture of this project was a real challenge-Size and glare were causing a problem. If you got to see it, then you know that it was much nicer in person.
You should have see the GIANT box that I shipped this sucker in! Lucky I work were we ship packages everyday. It was well package, overnighted and insured for lots of money (I learned from UPS if a package is insured for more than $5000 they take VERY GOOD care of it). So this magnet board was hand carried from place to place!
I purchased the sheet metal at the hardware store and had a custom frame built for it. I decorated it with cardstock and pattern paper squares and covered them with Mod Podge. Added some large flowers and felt accents. Created a few matching magnets (I laminated those so they would last with lots of handling)
