"Magnetic Calendar And Chore Chart" by All Thingz Related (featured guest blogger)6:00 AM
Hi! We are Bridgette and Rebekah from All Thingz Related! Our blog is all crafts and creativity! If you love home decor and love learning how to make things then our blog is the place for you! We would LOVE to have you come visit us! I have to tell you we are so excited to be guest posting for Julia…and we want to take a minute to say THANKS FOR HAVING US! Today we have a project perfect for busy Moms! I Have 4 kids and Rebekah has 3 so we know what its like to juggle Dr. appointments and school programs…we think this might help! Or at least be a beautiful way to keep things straight!
Magnetic Calendar and Chore Chart
We both started our projects with a sheet of medal from $ Tree!
We found this medal mixed in with the matted art at $ Tree…It was a little tricky to find but worth the trouble! They are 12in.x12in. so this makes them great for a sheet of scrapbook paper! You might have to trim things up a bit but still…perfect!
I chose to draw out my “grid” for the chore chart but Rebekah found some beautiful paper that already had the grid on it at Michaels! Good find Rebekah!
For the chore chart…after I drew on my grid I just took some tags I had printed out and glued them down and used some stamps to embellish each child’s square! I chose to stamp my girls initials on their square instead of doing their whole name. I also printed the days of the week off and cut them out for the top. Every thing here has been distressed with an ink pad! Time to decoupage this down on the medal! While that is drying we can make magnets!
We both chose to print off what we needed for our magnets…months…numbers…chores and a little bit of clip art! Now you can decoupage them to what every you choose to make your magnets out of! Rebekah chose to use pieces of wood for her magnets! I chose to use strips of adhesive magnet strips and stick my print outs right to it. Then we both decoupaged over them to give them a nice finish! So by this point your background should be GOOD and dry! It take a while to make all these magnets! Lets see if the work paid off!
This is the chore chart all finished! The older kids get 3 rows and the younger kids get 2. I am going to reward my girls for every magnet they have on the chart at the end of the week!
Check out this beautiful calendar! Rebekah made cute magnets for holidays! The heart is for anniversaries and the balloons is for Birthdays! She used a crop-a-dile to punch holes at the top so she could hang her calendar with a ribbon! Wow…this calendar is going to make each month FUN!
Thanks for having a look at our fun with magnets! Please let us know what you think! It was GREAT to be here today!
