Tutorial: Winter-Themed Message Board

Grab a few coasters, Glue Dots® and a Bind-it-All... Let's get crafty and organized this winter!

Supplies:

Glue Dots® (Glue Lines, Micro, Pop Up)
3 coasters
craft wood (Hobby Lobby)
chalkboard paint
paintbrush
cardstock (Basic Grey)white corrugated cardboard (Jillibean Soup)
stickers (Hobby Lobby, Basic Grey)
black floss (Sew Easy)corner rounder
Bind-it-All
o-wires
sticky notepad
chalk
small pen
ribbon

1. Apply two coats of chalkboard paint to a piece of craft wood. Let dry in between coats. Set aside.

2. Measure coasters, cut cardstock to size and round the corners using a corner rounder.

3. Attach cardstock to coasters by applying Glue Dots Glue Lines®. (Note: Make sure to apply the Glue Lines® where they won't get caught in the binding machine.)

4. Using the Bind-it-All, punch holes at the top and bottom of each coaster. Bind coasters together with o-wires. Do not fully close the bottom o-wire.

5. Decorate the top coaster with a square piece of corrugated cardboard, add stickers and tie a bow with floss. Use Glue Dots® to secure everything in place.

6. Attach the chalkboard to the center coaster using Glue Dots Glue Lines® and add a snowflake sticker.

7. Use Glue Dots Glue Lines® to attach the sticky notepad to the bottom coaster. Cut a snowflake sticker in half and adhere next to the notepad.

8. Tie floss around a piece of chalk and a pen to hang from the bottom o-wire.

9. Tie ribbon to the top o-wire and tie a bow to hang on the wall.
