Menu Board

new 063
I have been using an old dry erase board for my menu & decided it was time to upgrade.  Especially since my daughter loves to color on it with dry erase markers & accidently grabbed a permanent marker instead!  OOPS!
I have seen a lot of people use picture frames and put fabric behind the glass for color.  This was a very cute idea, but I didn’t want to have to spend the money on fabric.  So, I was at Hobby Lobby ***My favorite craft store*** and stumbled upon a 12x12 frame.  I instantly knew this was the perfect frame for my project, especially since scrapbook paper would fit perfectly behind it.
Supplies You Need:
  • 12x12 picture frame
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Vinyl (if desired)
  • Magnets (if desired)

This project is so simple, just put your desired piece of scrapbook paper behind the glass in your picture frame and you are done! I love the easy crafts! :)

I thought about just writing on the board with dry erase marker, but decided it would look even cuter with vinyl! **I buy all my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, they are an amazing company to work with**
I cut my vinyl with my Cricut and my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software, using black vinyl.
I hot glued magnets on the back so that it would stick to my refrigerator…

TaaDaa……it turned out so cute!  I even put St. Patrick’s paper behind the glass and plan on changing it to Easter colors as soon as April rolls around!

You could also just use this board as a board to write notes on….
