Materials: SPONTAN memo board, old sheet music book, wallpaper paste, brush
Description: First you tear out six pages of the music book to cover your memo board. Use old sheet music, because it has yellowed paper and gives your memo board a vintage look. Glue the pages one by one on the board and don’t forget to cover the sides as well. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s just to make sure all the gray is gone.
After that, you tear up the remaining pages into small pieces. Use different sizes and shapes.
After you’ve produced a big pile of pieces it’s time to glue. Use as many pieces as you like and continue until you’re satisfied. After you’ve glued a piece on the board use the brush to add another glue layer on top.
When you’re satisfied you add another glue layer on top. That way there won’t be any loose spots and you make sure every pieces stays where it belongs. Now it’s time to let it dry.
When the glue has dried your music notes memo board is finished!
