DIY Magnetic Message Board

Well, I busted out the duct tape idea again for another project.This time, I wrapped duct tape around a magnet/dry erase board.  My sister just recently bought a house and I wanted to make something cool for my nephew’s new room.  He’s 6 so I thought a Magnetic Message Board would be totally cool for a 1st grader’s bedroom.

I wrapped the 14 x 14 board with duct tape and used Cricut Graphically Speaking and Batman cartridges to cut out the black and red vinyl lettering.

Using duct tape was a super easy way to enhance the edges of the board.
