Recycled Message Board

My latest project - an old rusty cookie sheet turned into a cute message center. I had the cookie sheet and wanted to do this for a while  When I got the Gingham Garden DSP and the Washi tape to match, I knew what I wasnted to do. 

 My husband punched some holes in one edge of the cookie sheet and I spray painted it white.   The Island Indigo ruffled ribbon is pulled through and tied in a knot before tying a bow.

 I covered one side of flat wooden clothespins with washi tape and put magnet strips on the back.  The magnet strips are not very strong so may be looking for something with more holding power but for now they work.

I punched some flowers from more of the DSP and put it on a scallop circle of Pear Pizzaz.  Added a piece of the magnet sheet to the back.

Cute - and so easy.  Once the cookie sheet was painted, it took me about 15 minutes to ocmplete the whole thing.
