Teacher gift

I saw something on Pinterest that I liked and I used the idea with Close to My Heart coordinating papers (I used the Roxie set for this one). It is a magetic noteboard that you can hang on the wall!   I also took it a step further and spray painted the pizza tray so it also coordinated.  I need to punch holes in it and hang a ribbon but I was so excited about how it came out I just had to post it!



This is a 12″ pizza tray I picked up at Christmas Tree Shoppes.  It was teflon which made it a little harder to spray paint so I would suggest not getting teflon or sanding first.  I spray painted it burgundy so it wasn’t so obvious it was a pizza tray.  The circles are 10.5″ circles cut on the crict with George and Basic Shapes.  I cut four circles – the base circle you can’t see is black.  The left half is one side of a roxie page, and the right side is two quarters (top is solid, bottom has flowers) although it is a little hard to see in this picture.  I then cut roses on Art Philosophy out of a few different scraps of the Roxie papers I’d just used and glued them with Liquid Glass onto the heavy duty magents.  The NOTES letters were out of the scraps also.  For 4 sheets of Roxie papers (mixed) I have enough combinations to make 4 of these!!!!!  I was very frugal with my scraps on the cricut for sure.   I have been perusing ebay for lots of trays that aren’t teflon as these are going to be Christmas teacher gifts too! ( I swear every year I will start early and I think this year I just might!)

    This is such a great idea! Love the paper choices and the flower magnets are gorgeous. Great job! Can i be on your Christmas list, even if I’m not a teacher? Lol

    Now THAT is clever !! Thanks for sharing ! I would even considering incorporating that in a Make and Take if I can find pizza pans at the right price … Brilliant!

    Thanks for the nice comments! I got the pizza pan for $4 at Christmas Tree Shoppes but I’ve been looking on Ebay and found a few sellers there also. Amazon also seems to have pretty cheap.

    This was really the first project using the double sided CTMH papers for me and it worked so well to get it all coordinated. I have another one I’ll post with the other parts of the same papers :)
