Magnetic Message Board for my room

I was trying to figure out how I could hang a metal/magnetic board in my room.  Then the idea hit me like a ton of bricks!
Here is the finished product.  It's not very fancy, but the magnets are cute!  Here is how I did it.
 I have discovered those Command Hooks that are adhesive and come off cleanly.  THEY WORK!  I love them, and am using them for a bunch of different uses.  For this project I put the hook on the inside of my cabinet door, but I put it on upside down!
 I punched holes in my metal sheet.  You can get these for $3 at craft stores.  They are very cool!  Then I set eyelets in the holes so that it wouldn't cut my ribbon.  The edges of the metal are SHARP!
 I measured my ribbon, and threaded it through, tying a good square knot.
 On the corners of the back, I adhered squares of felt so that the movement of the door with the metal hanging on it wouldn't scratch my cabinet door.  Later on, I went to the craft store, and they had the felt squares, already made for this kind of purpose.  Oh, well, mine were not pretty but at least they were free.
Then I looped it over the door and onto the upside-down hook!  Taa Daa!  New over-the-door magnetic message center!  Now, you could ask, why didn't I just put the hook on the front of the cabinet door.  My answer...I didn't want to have the hook showing!  That's the plain and simple truth.  Weird, yes, but true none-the-less!

Stay Crafty, My Friends!

I think the upside down hook is quite a clever idea, as like you, I don't like the look of hooks on the outside of cupboards. Helen (Sydney)
