Magnet Board Teacher Gift

How to make this super cute Magnet Board Teacher Gift!! Inexpensive and very easy!!
Hi Lil’ Luna Readers! It’s Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts!  
As always, I’m thrilled to be here. As you probably already know the kiddos will be starting school soon!  I’m so sad that summer is almost over, but excited for all the new & exciting adventures that are sure to happen this coming school year.  This year is a little bittersweet for me because my youngest daughter is starting kindergarten.  She is so excited.  She can’t wait.  {I could wait a few more years though! ha!}
So today I’d love to show you the back to school {magnet board teacher gift} we plan on giving her teacher at Meet the Teacher night this week.

To make this I ordered a kit

from Finger Snapper {a new daily deal craft site}

or you could easily make your own.

The wood block measures 8 x 1 x 3.5 inches

and the sheet metal measures 8 x 7 inches.

A slit is cut into the wood block about a 1/2 inch deep.

You just slide your sheet metal into that groove,

& it makes a super cute magnet board.

To dress up my sheet metal a little I grabbed a piece of back to school scrapbook paper.

I traced my sheet metal on the back & then cut it out just smaller than my lines.

After I finished cutting the paper to the right size,

I used Elmer’s spray adhesive to glue the paper to my sheet metal.

I painted my wood block a matching color & then waited for it to dry.

I added some vinyl lettering in the smiley monster font.

Then I just slid the sheet metal into the slot.

I put on a few magnets.  That’s it.

I really think it turned out cute!

Then I added a sweet picture of my little lady.

Doesn’t she look so grown up in her new backpack?

    What a cute idea! I LOVE the idea of teacher gifts as they work so hard and deserve honoring. When my oldest finished his first year of pre-school I gave the teachers this Teacher’s Candy bar Poem and they loved it! http://mummydeals.org/a-poem-about-teachers/

    I absolutely LOVE Ginger and her craft blog and this cute back to school craft didn’t disappoint :-] I think I’ll have to give this a try once my little one starts school. Thankfully I have a few yew years to worry about that {She’s 15 months old now}. Whew :-]

    Glad I found your blog and I enjoy reading {and Pinning} it as often as I can.

    Keep up the good work, both of you :-]
