This Week: KITCHEN SCRATCH PAPER
Keep scratch paper handy on this little hook. Possible categories to write on the label: "Shopping List", "Receipts", "Recipe Notes", or sometimes I just want to write “Take a Number” and put a number on each scrap of paper.
Or get the artwork in the "artwork downloads" column to the right. Print it out on 4" x 6" photo paper, and make sure the print size is 100%. You might need to save the file and print using a photo application.
This art is only for your personal use, and may not be reproduced. And please, if you use my artwork, send me a picture of what you made, so I can pin it to my pinterest board.
FIG. 1 Supplies: Mat knife, Tacky glue, printout, poster hanging goo, (or stick-on magnet, depending on where you want to hang project), adhesive picture hangers, hole punch, scissors, scratch paper, pencil, glue brush, ruler, craft wood (I used 3/32 bass wood from model making section of art store).
FIG. 2 Make multiple passes with the mat knife to cut wood into pieces. Mine are 3 ½" x 6". For strength, make sure the grain is running the long direction.
FIG. 3 Cut out the art. Draw a centerline on the back of the art, at the bottom.
FIG. 4 Paint glue all over the back of the art. Line up the hook so you can see the centerline through the hole. The hook is facing the front of the art. Trim off any of the tab that overhangs the art.
FIG. 5 Paint glue over the back of the hanger and place it on the top of the board.
FIG. 6 Cut poster adhesive into four small pieces and apply it to the back of the board.
FIG. 7 Punch holes in your scratch paper and hang it on the hook. Write a category on the label like “Farmer’s Market,” or “To Do.”
