How to make a magnetic memo board

Note: This post is sponsored by DecoArt, but all opinions are 100% my own. 

I don’t know about you, but we are bad grocery store people. I probably go the store 5 times a week, and I usually just got to get stuff for a specific meal. The really annoying thing is that I kept forgetting the things you don’t buy all of the time, like honey. 5 trips to the store in one week, and darn honey. Annoying. This is why I decided to make us a little magnetic memo board for the f ridge. That why every time I stuck my big head in the fridge I would have to see what we need, and hopefully that would help it stick in my head a little better for the next grocery run!

Does anyone else have this issue or is just me?!

Let your card stock dry, and stick it back into your white frame. Here’s a trick, make sure you love the design and color, because once you glue on the magnets it’s going to be a pain to get the card stock back out of the frame! I glued on 6 magnets. You might need more or less depending on the weight of your frame and the magnetic power of your fridge and magnets!

The last step is to hot glue a magnet to the dry erase marker so you don’t lose it! Easy peasy! Oh and here is the dino magnet tutorial!
