This is a cute saying that Grandma's will love and If you don't have vinyl and scrapbook paper on hand you can use the printable option- just click on the picture and print and glue to any magnet board you have on hand. This craft is a great way to make a thrifty and thoughtful homemade gift for Mother's day or Birthday gift for Grandma!

Difficulty: Easy


14x16" bead board

12x12" metal sheet

Magnets and Pictures


1. Cut bead board to measure 14"x16", most Home Depot or Lowes will cut this to size for you or you can cut to size using your own table saw but be sure to measure twice and cut once.

2. Glue 12"x12" metal sheet to front side of board using permanent craft glue and hot glue gun and let dry. Glue 12x12 Scrapbook paper to metal sheet using Mod Podge and foam brush and smooth out any air bubbles before it dries.

3. Lay vinyl out on magnet board- if you don't have any vinyl on hand you can click on the picture and print. Use squeegee to apply vinyl once it has been taped in place- making sure to start in one corner and work your way down. Once applied- smooth out any bubbles.


For displaying- Glue ribbon to top or Drill holes in top corners for ribbon and tie to hang. You can also use an easel or plate stand to display like the one featured here.
