Zutter's Man Made-Hand Made Challenge! :)

A couple of years ago I was SO AFRAID of my BIA that I left it in its box and just stared at it! :) AND THEN....I ended up at the Zutter Zisters' Blog and go everyday to see if there is a new post of news, design team projects, or a challenge. :) A few days ago they had a post of a challenge to make a Masculine Project in honor of Father's Day. I thought, "WONDERFUL!" I needed a gift for my dad and this was a good way to get 2 birds with 1 stone! :)

I knew what I wanted to do for my dad. :) I feel he would need a message board for his garage, since he is almost always in there. :)
I started with a Zutter Clipboard Wood Cover and some silver o-wires, a piece of cork, and an idea of what I wanted to do. I knew not only did he need a message board, but he also needed to be able to have a bottle opener for his beverage bottles and also a pen to write down notes on the Post-it notes that I provided on the board.
This is more of a focus on the board itself. I tried to include everything he would need on the board. I had the family phone numbers put on there. Some hinge clips for what he may need to clip on there. I also put some tacks on there for pics or messages.

A little bit of focus on what holds the keys. :)

The finished project! :)

What I used: Bind-it-All, Zutter BIA Silver o-wire, hemp, Tim Holtz Idea-o-logy "Love" key, hinge clips, Alpha Grundgeboard, Post-It Notes, CTMH Marker/Pens for writing the phone numbers and distressing the paper where the phone numbers were written, parchment paper, Quartet 6x6 cork board, Ranger Paint Dabber (espresso), Crop-a-dile, Making Memories typed eyelets(I flattened the backs with my Crop-a-dile), DYMO label maker and black tape, Zig paint pen in black and silver to color the tops of the tacks.

I hope you can use this idea and make it your own! :) Enjoy and Happy Father's day to you and the Special Men in your LIFE! :)
