DIY back-to-school magnet board

Back-to-school is a stressful time for people. There are so many things to keep track of, especially when you have multiple children involved in multiple activities. And I’m a visual person, so I don’t like always keeping everything electronically. My solution? Create a magnet board where you can track everything. And of course, you can decorate your own magnets. And for writing items on the magnet board? BIC Back-to-School products, like the BIC Atlantis® pens.

Now, my wood shapes didn’t have a back. So it was time to improvise. I used a cereal box.

I traced the shapes on the back of the cereal box with a pencil and then trimmed to fit.

Then I Mod Podged the shapes and adhered the scrapbook paper. Let dry, cut out and then Mod Podge on the top of the paper.

Adhere each cereal box piece to the shape it goes with using craft glue. Let dry.

My pens of choice for writing my notes are BIC Atlantis® pens. They come in classic ink colors, feature BIC’s exclusive Easy-Glide System® ink, with up to 35% smoother writing compared to traditional BIC® ball pen ink systems. They also come in fun colors, which I love. I’m a huge fan of awesome pens, and these fit the bill!
