Chore Chart

I finally got around to making a chore chart for Sophia. YEA!!!! I have yet to implement it, but I'm hoping it works.
I found this 18 x 18 white scalloped magnetic board at Hallmark of all places. I had a 20% off coupon (the original price was $22). So I felt like I got a pretty good deal. The green swirls are magnets holding the paper in place.

To make the magnets, I found clip art at Then I used my 1 inch circle punch to cut the clip art out.

Then I got the glass circular pieces found in the floral section of craft stores (usually) and used Glossy Accents to glue the clip art to the back of the glass pieces.

Eventually I used a hot glue gun to attach a magnet to the back of each glass piece.

Next up, I used a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper that coordinated with her room and glued pieces of rick-rack on there to divide the paper into 2 sections. I used Zip Dry for my adhesive.

I added ribbon into the holes around the magnetic board. I added a banner at the top that says Chores, but I think I might change that. Nothing on the board is permanent.

I used my Cricut machine to cut all the letters.

An d the best part, is that it came with this stand so that I can set it down low, at Sophia's level.

Now to implement the chart!!!
