Magnetic Verse Holders

Recently I was asked if I could come up with a craft for our church's women's retreat.  The theme was "Women Seeking Joy".  I have a ton of scrap wood/fence boards so I wanted to find something using that which would keep costs down.  I decided that cut into small pieces, the wood could become a magnetic verse holder.
 I printed out the theme verse ahead of time on scrap book paper.  The ladies applied the paper to the wood using Mod Podge and then distressed the edges using small pieces of sanding foam included in their kits.
 I chose twelve different Bible verses on "joy" and printed them on card stock.  The ladies were able to choose from an assortment of stamps and ink to decorate the verse cards.
 By adding the ribbon and paper flower as well as high-powered magnets on the back, all of the ladies were able to create something they could use and enjoy in their homes.  I enjoyed making these so much that I'm thinking of making more to sell in my Etsy shop.  You could use these to hold note paper, grocery lists, photos and of course, your memory verses.  Now to find the TIME to create more . . .
