Brag Board

I made this yesterday and I L.O.V.E. how it turned out!  It's a place to display all the wonderful projects my little guys make for me - instead of plastering them all over the fridge.  It was super simple to make which is even better.  All I did was take a 20 x 8 piece of pine (which I cut myself since Aaron is out of town) and then I painted the edges and back a off white color.  I then cut some cute scrapbook paper and distressed the edges with brown ink and mod-podged it on.  While that was drying I mod podged a coordinating paper onto 5 clothespins and cut out some 3 in. vinyl lettering (first time using the cricut for vinyl - LOVE IT!!).  When the board was dry, I glued the clothespins on with the glue gun and then added the letters.  I still have to figure out how I'm going to hang it.  I'm thinking I will just put some picture hangers on the  back and be done with it.  I might screw some holes and wire it up, but I'm not sure yet.  Anyway, it was super easy and took less then an hour from start to finish.


  1. Super cute!!! I love the idea. I don't have a cricut or a circular saw, so I am trying to figure out how I could do it. I do have a board I bought awhile back that I could use, but it's kind of small. Hmmmm... I'll have to think

  2. Very good idea. Where do you get all your cute paper?

  3. So cute. I love the idea of having a place for all those papers a mom just can't throw out!

  4. Cute Idea! I am thinking it doing the same thing but putting "Honey Do List" on it as I work weekends and my dear hubbie always forgets what I need him to do.

    For Sadie: Home Depot and Lowes will cut the board for you. You can also buy stickers or chipboard for the letters.
