Dollar Store Cookie Sheet Magnet Board

By: Maureen Wilson for FaveCrafts.com

Turn a dollar store cookie sheet into a pretty, decorative memo board using scrap paper and Mod Podge. This dollar store craft from Maureen Wilson is thrifty and easy to make, and it makes a big impact on your craft room decor. Learn how to make memo boards that are stylish and functional.

Dollar Store Cookie Sheet Memo Board

Materials:

  • Cookie sheet
  • Spray paint
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brush
  • Corner rounder punch
  • Magnets

Supply Tips: I bought this 9 x13 inch cookie sheet at my local dollar store. When choosing a cookie sheet for this project, it’s best to get one without a non-stick coating, because the spray paint will adhere better. Also, it’s best to select one with protruding handles, because it’s easier to hang.

Instructions:

  1. I’m starting by giving my cookie sheet a couple coats of color. I’ve chosen a glossy spray paint in aqua. Spray outside, with a piece of wrapping paper or cardboard to protect your work area. It’s also important that you choose a warm day to do this, because the paint won’t apply smoothly on cold metal. Add a light coat, wait for the paint to dry, and apply a second coat.
     
  2. Once the cookie sheet is dry, measure the bottom to see how long to cut your paper strips. I’m using some scraps I have left over from another project. The manufacturer is Crate Paper and the line is called Pretty Party. I’m using strips that are 3 inches wide, as well as strips that are 1 inch wide.
     
  3. Since my cookie sheet has rounded edges, I’m using a corner rounder paper punch to trim the corners of my top and bottom pieces.
     
  4. Now we can adhere the paper. I prefer Mod Podge for this, because it thickens the paper a bit and provides a nice seal. Work with one strip of paper at a time, applying the Mod Podge directly to the cookie sheet. A thin coat works best.
     
  5. Smooth the paper strip on top of the Mod Podge. Rub the paper firmly and thoroughly, because this will reduce bubbling when you add the top coat.
     
  6. Continue adding the rest of the paper strips. Allow to dry completely.
     
  7. Next we’ll add a top coat of Mod Podge. Again, add it thinly. If you see streaks of white, that means it’s too thick, so brush that area again. Allow to dry.
     
  8. When your Mod Podge dries, you may notice some bubbling of your paper. To fix this, apply a small amount of Mod Podge to the gap. Work the bubble towards the nearest seam or edge, and rub it firmly with your finger until it flattens and seals.
     
  9. The rim on the cookie sheet’s back can serve as the hanger for the nail. Alternately, you could punch a hole in it with a hammer and nail.
