Cute Magnetic Board

It was recently my sis-in-law's 30th birthday. We are into being frugal, so I made her a magnetic board with personalized magnets. The total cost for this was probably less than $2!

I started with a metal tray I got at a thrift store on half-price day for 25 cents.

Cute ain't it? So, I took my handy dandy Mod Podge, some craft paper, and riboon...and turned it into this!
Sorry about the poor picture quality, my camera was full at the time so I took these on my phone's camera. I took some clear stones and Mod Podged some matching paper with the initials of my s-i-l, her hubby, and her two little boys on them, added magnets to the backs, and stuck 'em to the board. I was worried about the crinkle-ly looking corners, but I think they add to finished look. This was super easy, super cute, and my sis loved it!
