To Do Board

Introduction: To Do Board

About: I make things, sometimes I break them.

Here's a quick and easy memo board to get you on track. Its virtually free to make too, if you have some left over materials.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The Materials

You will need

-a picture frame of your choosing, fairly large to fit all the tasks you will give yourself.  I got this frame for free since it was busted up a bit

-a piece of fabric, this is piece I had left over from a textile class and I couldn't bring myself to cut it up :(

-fabric glue or straight pins (not pictured)

-artist tape, like masking but acid free and archival. Also removable.  Seriously great stuff.

-post it sticky notes or you could just use a dry erase marker if your fabric isn't too dark or patterned like mine.


Step 2: Fabric Stretch

Take your frame apart and stretch your fabric over the backing.

Step 3: Put It Back Together

Put the glass back on your frame.

Step 4: Tidy Up

Either pin or glue down the excess fabric (or just cut it away) and you're ready to start giving yourself tasks.

Step 5: Make a List!

Now give yourself some categories, organize your ideas, and get to work!
I like using post its because I can crumple them up when I finish something, also I can reorder their priority if needed.

    I agree with Jessie! Very nice, and simple. I'm thinking of creating a family Kanban board, and I might mod this design slightly for that.
