How to Make a rosette memo board TUTORIAL

i am always forgetting things. always.

i like to blame it on my “mom brain”…..seems like every since i had babies, i’ve lost my mind and forget EVERY*thing! so i made this adorable little dry erase memo board to jot down notes and things i need to remember this summer. {like birthdays. i am the worst at remembering birthdays. my mom knows this and is so sweet to send me reminders when a birthday is coming up. thanks mom!} i love that my little rosette memo board stands up {with the help of a dowel}so i can find it easily…… instead of getting buried under toys or fabric or laundry! 

i added a scattering of brightly colored rosettes and a couple of rhinestones to add a little pretty to my memo board. perfect!

i cut the vinyl with my Silhouette SDso that the wording is on the back of the glass so i can write all over the glass surface with a dry erase marker.

here’s a quick little tutorial on how to cut your vinyl so the sticky side of the vinyl is on the front of the lettering:

add your text to your Silhouette Studio document. the font i used is “Annoying Kettle” from i like to show the grid lines when i am creating with my Silhouette SD. i think it makes it easier to cut the correct size. plus its a handy reference.

hold down the Shift key and click on all text/image boxes to select them all. then right click and select Group.

select your design, right click again and select Mirror Horizontally and this will flip your image so that when it cuts, the sticky side of the lettering will be on top. cut your vinyl out as normal.

using transfer paper, apply the vinyl to one side of the glass making sure that you apply it so that it reads backwards.

i then cut a piece of solid white fabric and put it in place of a picture behind the glass. if you want your frame to sit on a table, carefully drill a small hole in the back and put a dowel in it. then i embellished with rolled fabric rosettes and rhinestones all applied with a glue gun.

these cute memo boards make perfect gifts and are a great project for church youth groups!

    Yes… please tell us how to make the rosettes. They are beautiful. Love the frame too. I made one similar by printing the font on a piece of paper with lines. (I can’t write in a straight line)

      Ah! straight lines is a great idea! I can’t write straight either!! lol
