How To Do it YourselfHow To Do it Yourself

step 1

Take a few wood pieces(easily available from a local carpenter, from extra material of finished product/ or use some that lies around at home) and smoothen the corners of it using sand paper. Take a few nails and hammer the wood panels together to the required shape of the output/ magnetic board.

step 2

Take a plywood sheet/ any wood sheet and cut it exactly to the shape of the desired output and hammer it on top of the wooden frame done in STEP 1

step 3

An Iron sheet is then taken an cut to the shaped of the plywood previously cut and hammered on to the plywood(assuming the plywood faces up and the frame faces down, the iron sheet is hammered so as to it faces up,ie, it is hammered over the plywood), to keep it in place and to make the board magnetic.

step 4

Take an old saree(the more colorful and vibrant, the better the end product would be) and cut it to cover the frame on the whole, with enough to cover and seal it behind the plywood, on the frame. in case the saree is torn very badly, buy some cloth (blouse material) of matching color and use it as a base to stick the saree on it using Fevicryl Hobby Ideas Fabric Glue. Iron the saree on low heat to make it crisp, to prevent any crease

step 5

Cover the Saree entirely over the plywood (on which is the iron sheet) and the frame and stick the saree to the back of the frame using Fevicol SH, which is diluted in the ratio 1:1 with water, making sure the saree is straight with the desired pattern highlighted and without creases.

step 6

Take an OHP Sheet (available in 2ftx2ft and larger sizes as well in art stores) and cover the saree covered wooden frame with properly creased edges(done with a cutter/back of a scissor). this is to prevent any fungal formation of the cloth in humid regions and for making cleaning easier in dusty regions. by doing so, you also dont damage the fabric with the magnetic's or sticky-notes' marks. NOTE: do not seal the OHP Sheet behind the frame. make holes on the sides of it (which is behind the frame) and thread the ends together as in shoe laces. by doing so, you can remove the OHP sheet when required and replace it as well, if it gets scratched a lot or for other reasons.

step 7
