Multi task message board (DIY command center)

Today I am sharing my multi task message board. I made this command board to keep track of everything.
Whether it is something important per week that needs to be done.
Important bills and receipts.
Plans that come to my mind regarding crafts and blog.

DIY Multi task message board

I bought this bulletin board which came with a rope and hooks (for $3).
For a 18″x24″ board I think it’s a really good price.

Next I used some decorative paper to make it pretty.

I ended up using gift wrapping paper. You can also use fabric to cover the board with thumb tacks.
Cut the paper to the size of the board. I used double-sided tape to stick paper on board.
(It helps as it doesn’t ruin the original surface and is changeable).
I then used a cuter to remove the excess of paper from the sides for perfection.

Here’s how it looks so far:

I then measured and cut six rectangles out of decorative paper.

Glued them on the board to use for weekly reminder.
My craft room is where I spend most of my time. Now here’s the cute part.
I got this promotional key chain. It has a sticky back which is sticky enough to hold the weight of 5-6 keys.
I used stickers to complete the look.
I wanted custom holders to match with the board. And made these using cardboard and decorative paper.

Recycled Cardboard Holders

This post was getting too long so I posted about the recycled cardboard holders tutorial in another post.
I used sticky back Velcro for hanging the holders on the wall.
Stick both the parts on the holder’s back and press it against the wall.
A final look at the pen holders.
You can also use them to hold receipts and business cards.
I used letter stickers to label my holders and days of the week.
Sometimes we have important papers we don’t want to punch holes in! So, I bought these office clips.
And stuck my pattern paper to the front and sides to match. Finally I glued it on the bulletin board.
Initially I added only 1 clip, but when the board was put to practical use I glued 2 more.
Here’s what the clips look like:
These come in very handy.
