I have been wanting to get a bit more organized in the kitchen with my weekly menu planning and receiving a box full of fab tools from EKSuccess helped me get my rear into gear!
Opening each of the EKSuccess Tools decked out in pretty packaging was almost as much fun as playing with them!
I liked how each tool shows completed projects of what it’s used for right ON the packaging AND I really, really liked how I could scan the QR code from my smart phone to watch a video with creative uses; this made is super easy for me to become familiar with the tool before using it. Completely brill!
To make your own weekly menu board, I used a canvas, clothespins, scrapbook paper and a handful of the EKSuccess Tools, including the 3×15 Ruler, Retractable Knife, 1″ Circle Punch, Adhesive Dots, Dotto Adhesive Glue, Glitter and Scissors.
I painted the canvas in a flat acrylic paint, so I could use it as a chalkboard if needed, then shaped the rectangle canvas into an oval so it would fit inside my oval frame using the knife & scissors:
From there I covered standard clothespins using the scalpel, ruler & adhesive glue with cute scrapbook paper:
I printed out the days of the week, using the first letter of each day only, punched them out:
I sprinkled glitter on the letters to add a little sparkle and bling! I then added an adhesive dot on the back of each letter and put them on each clothespin:
I printed off my menu items, simple meals my little family eats as I am no chef, and cut them out using the ruler & scissors:
The detailed stuff is now done! I simply strung a piece of bakers twine across the top of the canvas to hang the clothespins from and pinned my menu items from the clothespins:
Viola! I now have a weekly menu board to keep me just a little more organized in the kitchen. Since the canvas is also a chalkboard I can write my grocery items on it, too.
Here’s a peek at the simple pocket I created to store the menu items we won’t be using this week:
I had such fun using the EKSuccess Tools to create this project. For more project ideas visit the Spotted Canary or stop by the EKSuccess Tools facebook. So how do YOU stay organized with your weekly menus? We would love to know!
