Poster hanging project

Hi everyone, it’s been a while! You know…life.

Anyway, I have a little project to share 🙂

Next year I’m excited to be starting a Cert IV in Massage Therapy. It’s something that has always been in the back of my mind to do and I needed something more hands on, and committed, to do in my spare time. At completion I can give relaxation massage as a business on the side which will be a fantastic option for me if I ever want to step away from working full time in my fulfilling but stressful HR career.

I am currently doing a short “taster” course and have quickly decided that given I am going to need to intimately know the muscles of the body from an anatomical perspective, I should get a muscle poster! So I ordered this:

As specified it arrived as an A2 sized poster freshly printed on quality poster paper. My thought from the beginning was the hang it using those black poster strips. But I didn’t order any when I ordered the poster and they proved to be stupidly hard to find in any relevant store (BigW, news agents, Officeworks etc). So I decided to do something a little funkier with rulers, magnets, string and E6000 glue. I had the string and glue on hand (glue shipped ages ago from the US, any epoxy glue will work fine though), and everything else cost me about $20. It was possibly slightly more expensive than the plastic strips if I ordered online but looks heaps better I think 🙂

Here it is in pictures with basic instructions in the captions. If anything isn’t clear, please ask!

String

4 x 45cm wooden rulers

4 x magnet strips

E6000 epoxy glue

Magnet strips opened. Glue goes on white side.

Like so…

Glued down centred on each ruler.

All four done and left to set for 24 hours.

Then they simply snap together over the poster and get strung up.

Classroom chic?

It worked just as I hoped it would.

I’m so happy with this simply little project! I may even replicate this elsewhere in my house or as a gift 🙂
