$1.32 Gift for a Tween/Teen (or for anyone!)

Because the front of my fridge has met its maximum capacity for displaying kids “Way to Go!” school-work, then a magnet board is a great new addition to any room.  This one was made for a tweens bedroom, but I can see making these for your kitchen or office, too.  The only expense I had was the sheet metal.  I bought the smallest sheet it came in and that was for $7.95. I divided it into 6 sections so basically this particular board cost me $1.32.  Now I’ll have 5 other pieces ready to go for other gifts! 

Remember, directions for all these projects will be posted late tonight.  Have fun!
