I made this a while back and I thought some of you might be interested...
|First you cut wood into about 7 inch lengths. My husband did the cutting, so I am not sure how, but he cut angled slits into the wood, but not going through.|
|Then you spray paint them. When I am using cheaper spray paint, I have found this tool so helpful and a savior for my thumbs. It is a couple of dollars in the paint section of the store. (I found mine at Walmart.)|
|Paint and turn until they are completely covered.|
|After they are dry rough up the edges with sandpaper.|
|Next cut out vinyl and it to the metal flashing (found in a hardware store for less than a $1. Add vinyl to the wood and we added magnets to little flat sided rocks from the $1 store. Those are to hold the cards n place. Easy and cheap!|
|Here is a teacher version for their desk. Kind of a fun variation!|
