Girly Magnet Board

I have been working on a magnet board for Hannah that is going to be her chore chart. I am still working on the chore chart part of it as you can see because I haven't quite figured out how I want to do that yet so if any of you have any suggestions that would be wonderful! I first painted it pink to match her room then I embellished it by making flowers out of lots and lots of buttons......(i am sick of buttons) I then decorated a big letter H with some paper and more buttons and ribbon. To make the part where it hangs I just got a big piece of thick ribbon and then cut out a bunch of smaller pieces of ribbon and tied each small piece on the big piece of ribbon.
I took this picture with the metal part taken out because I couldn't get a good picture with the metal in. The picture below is what it looks like with the metal in.

You can have each chore written down (however), and make an adorable magnet she would love. when she does her chore, she can pick a cute magnet and place it next to what she accomplished. Hope you get more ideas.

I love the way you embellished it, totally cute. I have a gigantic magnet board for my kids playroom- a chore chart wis a good idea!
