Scrapbook Bulletin Boards

Don't forget to enter the Sherrod Studio giveaway for your chance to win an adorable purse pattern of your choice (2 winners)!

I've had these two cute bulletin boards for awhile now and I thought they looked really nice in our desk nook, but I couldn't figure out what to do with them.  I didn't want to just put pictures on there, I wanted something a little fancier.

Sorry for not clearing off the desk before taking the picture :)  The hubby was in the middle of studying.  Anyways, first I tried printing off some scenic pictures that size.  I was thinking of mod podging them on there as if they were frames.  That idea didn't turn out so well.

Then I tried making wreaths to go on them.  I made a rag wreath first and I liked it but not on the board, it looked terrible on the board!  The other wreath looks better and I may have kept them if I had made them both that way.

Then when I was at Micheals I saw a little kit for making shadow box displays (with cute pins and what not) so I got that and a little booklet of borders in the scrapbooking section and set to work.  Since I wanted them to look nicer than just a bulletin board I made sure to choose pictures that were either professional or just had really good lighting and colors.  Here's how they turned out.

I may get rid of the "memories" on the first board and just add another picture, what do you think?  I do love how they turned out though.  I love looking at them :)


  1. They are really neat that way and so easy to change out the pictures too. I might have to "steal" the idea at a later time.

  2. I say keep "Memories." It adds visual interest and allows the photos around it to really have a presence. Very cute idea!
