Hi ScraPs N' StriNgs Readers!!

It's Stacie...the craZy one behind The CrEaTiVe CraTe...and I am ExciTed that Sammy & Ruth invited me to swap with them today!! Don't they have an AwEsOme blog?!!
LoVe those aprons they make! AdoRaBle!
I am a SAHM with 4 beautiful and FuN kids {2 boys & 2 girls}...and wife to one awesome man!
I absolutely LoVe doing crafts in my spare time! I love creating things from nothing...going to yard sales...and browsin' antique and thrift stores in search of treasures that I can transform!
Sammy asked me if I would share one of my favorite tutorials... and I think {by far} this is my favorite :
Cupboard Door Picture Holder!

Here are the supplies that I used to do this project... old cupboard door!
First...sand & paint your cupboard door. {mine was already white} Then...I wiped stain (Minwax dark walnut) with a rag on all the edges...
Then...drill your holes for the ribbon...

Add your ribbon and tie in a bow...

Then...using E-6000 glue...glue your magnetic clip to were you want it. I used a 8x10 I glued my clip wherever the picture looked centered. {Tip: If the bottoms of your picture start to curl up...I used a little tape to hold mine down...or you could also use photo corners}

Then...for hanging...I just use the ribbon that is showing in the hang on a nail!
So CuTe...and So SiMpLe!!

Sooo...come on over and check out some other FuN ideas I've got going at the CraTe... I'd LoVe to have ya!!
Sammy & Ruth...thanks so much for letting me take over today!! You guys are awesome!!
Have a Great Day Everyone!!
