Happy First Birthday Inspired Stamps

Display board purchased for less than $6.00 at Wal Mart
 Hello Everyone,  it is Inspired Stamps First Birthday and below you will find a coupon for this weekend only to celebrate.
 I used Inspired Stamps to decorate my multi-purpose board.  I made this one for my dd, shhh! don't tell her.
A few tips.  I used three coats of chalk board paint (I purchased paint at Wal Mart along with board).
I let each coat of paint dry for 1 hour before applying each coat.  I used self adhesive dp to cover some of the panels, but you could use white glue or a strong adhesive.  I used a sheet of cork and applied to panel with red line tape.  I covered binder clips with same dp and attached to panel with red line tape.  You can use the clips for photos or items you do not want to attach with thumb tack. I applied velcro to each panel to attach to board, this secures them in place and also allows you to move panels as you see fit.  This was a lot of fun and easy to do.  Who knows I might do a few more.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  I will probably paint outside before I give it to my dd.  Enjoy your weekend! 
Finished display board.  I painted three panels with three coats of chalk board paint.
Four panels were covered with dp, three panels I put on a cork piece.

I added dp on mini binder clips and attached to panel with red line tape.

I printed calendar from Antoinette's blog where
she did a coaster tutorial.
