This project was a long time coming, and much procrastinated. Finally, the frames and scrapbooking paper went on sale at the much celebrated Hobby Lobby and I picked up some supplies:
A 12×12 scrapbooking frame ($6 [it was half off])
8.5×11 piece of scrapbooking paper for day labels
12×12 scrapbook page for background
After mocking up this template for the day labels, I printed them out using the smaller (page size) of scrapbooking paper. (Burlap pattern in taupe and linen). I cut them square by using my straight paper cutter.
To affix them to the larger page, I used my scrapbooking glue dots, although any clear-drying glue will work. Red hasn’t started many crafts yet, so Elmer’s is hard to find around here.
Simply affix your days in a line on the larger paper, and make sure they are about 1″ from the edge, so that the frame does not cover them. Fit the page into the frame, and use a dry erase marker to change your menu weekly, or shuffle your meals around to suit your schedule!
Hubs has never been so happy to have seen a Pinterest project come to fruition. He eagerly checks the board each day to see what we have planned, picks out meat to defrost, and sometimes, beats me to writing the lists! 🙂 It certainly helped minimize the guess work and grocery bill and increase flexibility!
