I’ve been dying to show you this project, but didn’t want to give away any secrets. You see, I made them for a few bloggers out there in the home décor blogland. And as luck would have it, most of these special women are here at Blissdom! As a tiny token of my appreciation for their inspirational blogs, I put together a little gift bag. Inside (among other things) was this one-of-a-kind memo pad.
Small picture frame
Cabinet Toe kick boards or other thin scrap wood (1 – 4.5″ x 4.5″, 1 – 4.5″ x 10″)
Small 2″ x 3″ picture
E-6000 glue (optional)
Saw (hand saw is fine)
Drill and bit (for hole)
All that will remain is the spring and snapping bar.
(I used mine in a miter box for a straight cut.)
The 4.5″ square piece is the same thickness as the mousetrap.
This insures an even surface for the memo pad to rest on.
I wet each piece of wood and then added the glue.
Beats me, I only use them to weigh down projects.
