of the Man, you, hope, did not forget that March 8 comes? It is time to prepare gifts expensive and favourite. Now with it, thank God, there are no problems. In any souvenir (jeweler) shop the choice of gifts - eyes run up. But it is possible to go on other way and to prepare a gift own hands.

How to make such gift, having enclosed in it part of the power? I offer two options of homemade products, simple in production. These are small boards for house notes. On one it is possible to pin paper notes, on another it is convenient to write with chalk. For such original gifts moreover made with own hands, there will always be a place in a hall or in kitchen.

We will break process of production of a gift into stages:

1. we Take N - oye quantity of stoppers and we cut everyone lengthways a knife on plates or strips not less than 1 cm thick. Plates, naturally, will not have the identical form, but so it is even more original.

2. From a frame for the photo we take out the cardboard basis and we cover it with acrylic paint (color choose on your discretion), then, after its drying, it is delicious.

3. When the varnish will dry out (for acceleration of process it is possible to use the hair dryer for drying of hair), we frame a piece of cardboard and we begin to spread on it the cut pith strips. You remember children`s game in a mosaic or modern puzzles? When the most successful option is found, we spread strips in the same order on a table, we dip a reverse side glue and, slightly pressing to the frame basis, we paste.

The board pith has to turn out beautiful and practical. It was necessary to stock up with pins or buttons - and it is possible to read the notes pinned to it from darling of the " type; Darling, I on aerobics, do not forget to feed Barsik. I kiss on a nose .
