Could this be made of an old garbage can lid? I think that would be cool, too! Old Cake Pan...re-purposed into a unique message board! Thrift stores & yard sales always have pans that you can buy for next to nothing...use chalkpaint, glue a ribbon on the back & use as a trash to treasure message/magnet chalkboard!!
I MUST do this with my girlfriends - so much fun! A "Favorite Things" Party -- Love this idea! "Each guest brings their favorite item (5 of the same thing) costing around $6 and a favorite treat or dish to share with everyone!". Girlfriend Christmas party this year. Fun stuff!
When my sister was married, I took the half-dead roses from her bouquet. At home, I rooted them by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. I kept these moist until rooted and then planted them in a shaded location in my garden. This year, on her first anniversary, my sister received a gift that can never be replaced: 12 rose bushes from her wedding bouquet.
