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
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!
