Target $ Spot Magnet Board


Today I altered this Target $1 spot magnet board. I had been to my LSS and saw a magnet board altered and thought it was a fantastic idea but the owner wouldn't tell me where she got the magnet boards. Hers were bigger than this one, probably 8" x 10". I was on the phone with Jody and got all excited and told her about it and she says to me, "Karen, those are at Target". I couldn't believe it so I had to go see for myself. Target had these, they are much smaller but they work the same. It looks like a piece of metal flashing that is bent to make it stand. I picked up a few of these to try. This is my first one. The mod podge isn't working as good as it should, I had to use some Crystal effects on a few spots. Some red line tape in some other spots so I need to find the right adhesive to use on these before I give any away. The paper is Bohemia by My Minds Eye. Oh and the red glitter heart magnets that came with the board were not going to work so I covered them with matching paper and then put stickles over the top for sparkles. Enjoy!

Your board is beautiful. I bought 32 of these last week at Target and have been altering them like crazy! I am selling them and using them as gifts. I love them. Before I got to your site, I was looking up magnet boards to see where to find large ones. I'm still looking!
