I had a heavy duty piece of corrugated cardboard and old jeans and thought it would be a cool idea to make a memo board using old jeans.

Large piece of corrugated cardboard (about 3 x 4 ft)

Old jeans (preferably with nice pockets with zippers)


Straight edge

Hot glue

Embellishments (rhinestones, gems, post it tacks, anything that you want to tack on memo board


1. Using a large piece of corrugated cardboard (3 x 4).

2.  Cut the cardboard starting from the bottom of the cardboard at the middle to the midpoint of the cardboard to make the legs.  Decide if you want the back sides or front sides of jeans…as long as they have few pockets and zippers. You won’t be covering the back of the memo board.

3. Cut your jeans the way you want on the memo board. Discard the other side of the jeans. Tuck all the sides of the jeans around the board with hot glue on the other side.

4. Embellish your memo board with whatever you want; gems, rhinestones, glitter, post it tacs. I added recipes, small calendar and notes.

Tips and Tricks

If you a big enough pocket on a pair old jeans, you can put your favorite pens to have handy in your memo board.


About 2sassygal

First of all, I love to cook...not every night, but weekends are the best time to cook. I am a animal lover, especially wildlife. My next vacation would be to South Africa. To get personal and close up to wildlife would be fascinating. I like to read suspense, thriller novels. Regarding television....I like some reality shows, crime shows, comedies. I like to look at a recipe from a cookbook and do my version of it.. usually the healthier choice. I am all about substitutions, if a recipe calls for a ingredient there are dozens of ingredients you can substitute for the called-for ingredient. I like summer because I love cooking outdoors, swimming. It's just the fresh air that makes everyone want to get outside and do something. I love the air especially after the rain.... that nothing compares to that.
