Take out menus.
They have taken over different parts of my kitchen through out my life, the front of the refrigerator, the top of the refrigerator, the junk drawer next to the refrigerator, the counter next to the phone, and most recently the Side of the refrigerator.
- Cerial box
- Things to decorate it with (paint, scrap book paper, glue, stickers whatever)
- Strong magnets
- A mess of menus
Step one: Draw cutting lines so you get good straight lines. You want the back higher than the front by a couple inches.
Step two: Cut the box. I found that for this, the best thing was to cut the corners down to the lines that gave me more room to move to cut off the sections that were not needed.
Step three: Decorate
Step four: Apply your magnets. the ones I had are those really cute ones that look like push pins, so I cut two holes in that top of the back and stuck the top through. If you have flat ones, (like from a magnetic list pad or something you can just glue them one the back.)
Step five: Marvel at your new *Free* stylish solution to the menu mess.
