Project Ideas: Organizing Boards.

We recently received in a new product - the organizing boards you see below - and today I wanted to share with you a few samples we created using this piece.

The boards come finished in black so no painting is needed - and the three clips you see on the bottom of the board are also included with the piece (and are already attached).

For this first piece we simply add the "Bless our Home" vinyl directly to the board and then embellished with some ribbon and stickers from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane line. From the clips we attached a couple of photos that had been matted onto pieces of pattern paper and then added a house image from one of the coordinating pattern papers as well. A super easy project that would look great in your home! The other bonus to this project is that you can easily swap out the photos since they are just attached with the clips.

On the second sample we used the board to create a chore chart station. We painted the top portion of the board with Chalk Board paint (which is great because then you can easily add and remove any additional notes you might have - or just to add a title to the board as we did here). We embellished the piece with some pattern paper and cardstock stickers from the Pebbles Seen & Noted line.

Then for each clip we created a little canvas of pattern paper and used alpha stickers to add the names - then wrote out the chores on white paper and clipped them to the board with the pattern paper. The white sheets are separate pieces so each day or week you can create a new chore list and add them to the clip.

This would also work well as a message station for members of your family - you could clip up any notes, messages, reminders, etc. for each person in the family.
