With the last week of school and tons of grading to do, I didn't have much time to craft, so I thought I would post what I wrote up for a blog swap I did recently with Scraps and Scribbles, just in case you missed it. :o)
Today I am excited to be sharing with you a fun tutorial on organizing jewelry for a super-cheap price!
Up until recently, the weather in Michigan has been anything but Spring-like, but, I have still felt the need for a little spring cleaning. When I walked into my bedroom, I was faced with this:
My jewelry was in a huge, tangled pile!! Yup, those are even a few necklaces hanging over the tv! Part of me never wants to buy new jewelry because I know I don't take care of it the way I should. Something had to be done.
On a recent trip to The Dollar Tree, I found these cork boards:
I decided to paint them Heirloom White to match the moulding in my room.
I also painted some cup-hooks heirloom white as well.
I trimmed scrapbook paper to fit into the frame of the corkboard. I had to gently push it to fit into the opening. It took some finesse, but with a little patience, I got it to work out.
I screwed the cup-hooks into the bottom of the frame.
Hang 'em on the wall and then organize that jewelry!
What I like about this idea is if I ever get sick of the blue paper, or if I repaint the room, all I have to do is cut new scrapbook paper out and I can switch it up!
Looks like I have some room for more jewelry... maybe I can finally buy some now that I have a place to safely store it!
I will be posting at these lovely parties.
