Here's a little tutorial I've had sitting in my laptop for about 6 months.
I found this... whatever... at the thrift store and bought it thinking I'd use it on So You Think You're Crafty. I didn't, but I do use it to hold all of my fly away recipes, even though I'm not sure I like it's current career.
Try to avoid the cheap spray paint... it's a total waste of your .96 cents.
This thing sat on my counter for about a month before I decided to stamp it.
Then it sat for another month before I decided to cover it all in paper.
In the end I am quite happy with the results.
