Oh, hey there. My name is Kim and I’m sharing DIY Christmas gifts in January.
But seriously, I think this gift could be great for nearly any occasion and any time of the year. In fact, I think it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day with a romantic love note or photo.
Yeah. That’s it. I’m just so far ahead that I’m already sharing Valentine’s Day gifts.
WINNING. (Just ignore the pretty Christmas lights. Those … are … Valentine’s Day lights?)
I actually made two of these this Christmas and I love them so much that I want one for me. It all started when I saw two beaautiful Threshold paddle cutting boards at Target on clearance for $4. I scooped them both up thinking I could make something with them for Christmas.
I have seen many of those great tablet holders on blogs and Pinterest. (Check out this awesome tutorial over at my friend Jen’s.) I love them but I don’t have a tablet. And I was thinking that the cutting board would be a lovely way to display notes, photos or recipes in the kitchen.
This project was so ridiculously simple, it’s embarrassing. I cut the name and est. date on vinyl with my Silhouette. Then I added the silver clip (which I stole from the fridge) with hot glue.
I decided not to add a block of wood on the back to prop it up. Instead, I thought it could be used on a wall. But if you want it on the countertop, I added an inexpensive black iron holder from Hobby Lobby. It holds a cookbook perfectly.
Two in one? And I may or may not have used it for some holiday baking before sending it off to it’s final home. Pre-loved. 😉
I think this is a fun twist on the DIY tablet stand and would make a lovely decoration for the kitchen. I even have a plan to use these for an upcoming party. Eek. Excited.
What do you think of my simple little DIY
Christmas Valentine’s Day Whenever-You-Want gift?
