Family Memo Board

Make family time more special with this cute memo board. Now that the kids are starting to head back to school, weekends are more important than ever - it's nice just being together. Whether I post a reminder about a fun event or a special note to say "I love you," this memo board helps me remember that Saturdays should be a little more laid back - just the way I like it.

  • 12 x 14" frame (I got mine secondhand at the Habitat for Humanity Store)  
  • 12″ cork tiles
  • Joy Iron-on Embroidered Letters
  • 13 x 15″ fabric remnant
  • Liquid glue
  • Spray adhesive
  • Foam board
  • Tack nails and small hammer
  • Cutting blade and mat

Measure and cut the cork tiles to fit inside the frame.

Because the inside of my frame was deep, I cut a piece of foam board the same size and glued the cork tiles to the foam board.

Lay the fabric over the cork to determine letter placement. Gently slide the cork out from underneath fabric and iron on the letters.

Spray the cork with adhesive and smooth the fabric over it.

Tap in a few tack nails inside the back of the frame to hold everything in place.

You can find Joy® embroidered, iron-on numbers and letters on sheets or individually in a variety of fonts, colors and sizes at your local craft store.
