Photo Covered Magnet Board

A couple years ago my sister had a birthday right before she headed off to college.  I knew she was going to go to college and make new friends, become more independent, and probably find a boy to marry (She is getting married this June! YAY!)  But I amid all that fun stuff, I didn't want her to forget about her big sis!  So I knew I wanted to make her something to remind her of our friendship, and all the fun times we have together.  So I came up with this magnet board.


She had been telling me for awhile that we needed to take some "sister pictures."  So one weekend when we were both at our Mom's we took a few pictures around the farm.  And then I used those to make my board, plus a few others I had of us having a good time. But the farm ones were pretty cute!





To Make the Photo Board:
I ordered my prints from Walmart.com online photo department.  The ones that were too close to be cropped I ordered in wallet size.  They were a perfect fit for the board.  I got my magnet board unfinished from the craft store.  I painted it red.  I laid out all the pictures, and trimmed them to fit perfectly. Then I used Mod Podge to put the pictures on. I bought some cute magnets to go on the board.  And WAL-LAH!  It was done!
