Have you heard about the Gypsy Moments collection from 7Gypsies? Gypsy Moments is about finding an instant, yet creative way to document the little moments that present themselves in the uniqueness of our one of a kind lives— points in time that make us blush, grin, smirk, tear, think, breath, dance, dream, wish, sigh and help us realize who we are. I really think this memo board does just that. It’s a place to collect and document the little moments that in one way or another affect you and the people around you. Create this personal memo board using two vintage trays and assorted cards and tags. It’s a perfect way to organize thoughts, collect memorabilia and display photos.

1. Decorate the base of the 12” x 12” shadowbox using file folders from the Gypsy Moments collection (4” x 6” and ATC). Cut to different sizes and angles and glue. Add decorative tape where the folders overlap. Use a strip of decorative tape to wrap the inner lining of the tray.
2. (Top Left Corner) In the top left corner of the tray, adhere a squarehook and hang a charm from the Flea Market Findings charm pack and a tag from the Gypsy Moments assorted tags. In the receipt holder, place a Gypsy Moments ATC file folder and fill it with a photo. We also included a Gypsy Moments Index Card and a tag from the Lille tag pack.
3. (Top Right Corner) Layer three Gypsy Moment Just Thankful Cards, using a vintage hanger to connect them, and add behind the metal receipt clamp. Add ephemera from the Ladylike ephemera pack. Cut a small .5” x .75” square from any remaining scrap and glue to the center of the metal receipt clamp (we used flower artwork).
4. (Bottom Left Corner) Layer a Happiness Card and two Today Cards behind the metal receipt clamp. Use scrap paper and glue a design to the center of the metal receipt clamp.
5. (Bottom Right Corner) Clamp two Doodle Sheets and mixed ephemera from the Trousseau ephemera pack. Add mini metal key(s) to the the Princesca Crystal Hardware and dangle from the metal receipt clamp.
6. Add a clear crystal knob to the bottom right corner of shadowbox and glue into place. Fill an apothecary jar with glitter and glue into place.
Easy! A unique, vintage memo board in no time! Add your own memorabilia to personalize.
