Magnetic Menu Planner

This is my new Menu Planner! My friend Stephanie and I made them last week! They are so easy and so much fun! I can't wait to start using it, to plan our meals for three weeks at a time!!!

4 12/12 contrasting Scrapbook paper
3 construction paper
Sticky notes
7 Bottle caps
A little bit of ribbon
embellishments(Stickers, flowers, triangle things)
Hot glue gun
Small cookie sheet(I just used an old one that I had)
I also used my cricket but, you can do the words and stuff how ever you want and change it up a bit!

I glued magnets onto the back so, it can stick to the fridge. I was surprised how well it holds!
Glue magnets to each of the backs of each bottle cap. Use cricket to make 1 inch circles out of paper. They fit perfectly! Hot glue them into caps. Wright days of the week, or I just used my cricket 1 inch letters. Stephanie used clear rock pebbles and glued the days of the week onto the back of them, which can be really cute too!!!
You make a little pocket at the top by, folding three of the sides of the paper. I hot glued the back of the sticky note pad to the paper to get it to hold. If you notice I had to round all four of the corner edges next to the corner of the pan so it looks nicer and fits better! I hope it works out for you! I'd love to know how yours turns out! If you have all of the materials it should only take you around one and a half to two hours, but, if you're like me,with a baby and a toddler, and not prepared it took me a few days! Have fun!


  1. Once again so stink'en cute! I'll have to make on of these too. Just keep making cute stuff and sharing your ideas and I'll keep stealing your ideas and maybe one day actually make some of these awesome projects!

  2. That is darling! I have got to do that! 3 weeks at at time would relieve so much stress for me too. Why don't you share some of your meal ideas too... I am always looking for some good ones!!!

  3. Very cute! I love that you can hang this on the fridge! Fab job!
    Thanks for linking up to Making It With Allie! I can't wait to see what you have for next week!
