While at Hobby Lobby the other day I came across these in the unfinished wood aisle. They were half off so I threw them in the cart.
I figured there must be something I could make with them. I got out the paint and painted one side of the wood, and apparently got it all over my fingers too.
I also used a little of this to help me out.Cut a piece of scrapbook paper into smaller pieces and mod podged it onto the unpainted side of the wood.
Then I got some sandpaper and put it to good use. I prefer sanding off the edges of paper rather than cutting it. It makes a nicer edge.Then I printed some numbers off of the computer and started cutting them out with the exacto knife.I mod podged them on top of the scrapbook paper. Now it is a nice game for my little guy to practice his numbers and his memory.And since there were some pieces left over, I couldn't let them go to waste. I mod podged paper onto one side and put sticky magnets on the other.Then I added some words to the front to add a little flair. Yay for more fridge magnets. You can never have too many!
