Home Decor Blog Hop Day One!

Welcome to the Home Decor Blog Hop!!! You should have arrived here, from the Super Crafty Ruthie's: http://septemberninth.blogspot.com/

To start at the beginning, and for a chance to win prizes from our sponsors click here.

My day one project is:
Magnetic Memo Board with Transparency







Supplies List:
5x7" metal flashing sheet EDIT: these are available at your local home improvement stores :)
Staples transparency
Staz-on ink in Black and Azure
Crop-a-dile hole punch
Glossy Accents
small neodium magnets
binding clips
from Club Scrap:

Bookgbinding glue
foam brush
Pure and Simple: green cardstock, black and white/green ribbon, photo turns
black waxed linen/ bookbinding needle
Turquoise ribbon
Stamps are Unmounteds from Refresh Your Soul, Memoirs and Blossom font





I started out by "sewing" the green cardstock to the transparency by first poking holes through both layers and then used the waxed linen to do the wrap around stiching.





Next I stamped on the transparency, and then used the Club Scrap bookbinding glue to secure the paper to the metal sheet.





Punched two holes at the top with the crop-a-dile and pulled ribbon through to make a knot on each side, decorate clips and photo turns with ribbon.





Use glossy accents to glue magnets to the backs of the phototurns.





Voila!





This project and all of my Home Decor projects were inspired by a 2007 Paper Crafts Magazine: Room to Room.

The next stop on the hop is the Fabulously Crafty Alina at http://www.neverstopscrapping.blogspot.com/
