Since March is National Craft Month, I decided to highlight craft projects that will help you become more organized.
Notice boards are functional, and, thanks to clever crafting, they can be pretty too.
Three ways to notice how organized you are
One way to make one is to convert a bulletin board into a ribbon notice board using pretty fabric and matching ribbon. Check it out here.
I made one once for my old apartment, and I used a picture frame and cut foam board to fit the picture opening. Then I decided to slide a thin magnet board underneath the fabric. This way I could slide pictures into the ribbons or use a magnet.
Converting an old cookie sheet into a notice board is easy too. You need glue (either Tacky Glue or Mod Podge), scrapbook paper, scrapbooking embellishments and ribbon. Find some pretty magnets to finish out the project.
For a more hard-working notice board, I like these boards with fabric pockets. Very handy to hold bills and other papers.
There you go! Three craft projects to help you add some color and organization to your life.
