Magnetic Learning Boards

Hello everyone! This is Java Jen from JAVA JEN CREATIONS and I'm excited to share here today and over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY! It is a privilege, as always, Sheila! Thank you!

I made these magnetic learning boards for our two oldest grandsons for Christmas but have not had the chance to share them yet, so here they are:

I was so busy making these before Christmas that I didn't even take pictures as I was doing each step! Sorry! :-(  At any rate, here is my "recipe":

 Cricut Imagine Blast Off cartridge
Fabric fat quarters
Provo Craft Your Story laminating machine
button magnets
Mod Podge
Metal cookie sheet

I started by covering my cookie sheets with two different fat quarter pieces that I picked up at Joann's. Next, I printed and cut 2 of each letter, number and shape. I took one of each and glued them to my fabric-covered cookie sheet with Mod Podge, being sure to completely cover them. I took the next set and laminated them using my Your Story. After trimming them, I put a button magnet on the back of each and my magnet board is now complete! These are really quite easy to make! I'm hoping to do a more detailed post on my blog, at some point, to show all the fantastic details close-up. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
