|Reminder Board For Child|
Office supply stores are one of my favorite places to visit; on the list just under bookstores. Back-to-School-Time is also one of my favorites because all of the school supplies are on sale. I think a lot of paper-crafters share similar feelings. Which brings me to the challenge from Frosted Designs this week: Office Supplies. Whoo hoo! I love it!
|Three Pieces of Cardboard Packaging To Be Glued Together For Base|
For the challenge, I knew I wanted to use shipping tags and binder clips. I also knew that I was becoming weary of reminding my dd every single day to do some simple things. It seemed a Reminder Chart was in order.
The greatest thing about this project is that I used things on hand and things that would normally have been thrown into the recycling bin.
|Cricut Art Philosophy Negative Cut Sheet|
After painting the cardboard base with acrylic paint, I adhered a piece of cardstock that was a leftover from a Cricut heart-cutting project that had been misted with pearl paint and water.
|Binder Clips To Be Covered With Washi and Tissue Tape|
On each side of the chart there are cute tape covered binder clips to hold the decorated shipping tags with the various reminders printed on them.
|Painted Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Shipping Tag|
The tags are regular manilla painted with Tattered Angels Tutti Fruiti Glimmer Mist. After they dried I ran them through the printer and added washi/tissue tape to both ends.
|Close-Up of Painted Chipboard Letters With Liquid Pearls|
My seven year old is the princess of re-purposing. She noticed that the double-sided tape dispenser was empty and that some of the washi tape was the same size as the used-up tape. She suggested that I re-use the dispenser. What a great idea! See it pictured below.
|Reusing Tape Dispenser For Washi Tape|
The last addition to the board was ribbon. The one used for hanging came from a gift and the other little ones are from my stash.
|Bow Tucked Through Binder Clip|
She has had this in her room for a couple of days and it has helped a little bit. Now instead of asking her if she did each of the individual things, I ask her if she did the things on the board. It is progress! Once these items are habits, we can change the tags to new things.
