I’m really excited about this because it is the first project where I don’t have to credit anyone else for the idea. Unfortunately  I didn’t take many pictures but its really easy so NBD.  So you may or may not know that glass and dry erase markers work together really well. I found a 12×12 inch frame at the craft store on clearance for $3.50 and got to work. First I took out the glass and backer and then primed and painted it a Copper brown.

While that was drying I found a 12×12 piece of cream paper and 4 other coordinating papers. (Trying to keep them fairly simple since they were going to be the background.)  Then I punched 5 large holes out of 2 of the papers and 1 small hole. With one other paper I cut all 6 small holes. The 4th Paper is for the stems.

Then I simply shaped them as flowers and used scrap booking tape to adhere them to the background.

Lastly I attached the glass to the frame using gorilla glue so that when I wrote on it it wouldn’t move!

I plan on changing the backgrounds with the seasons…or if I get board sooner….

  2. Hi I LOVE this idea! cute, do u think if you put a piece a craft tin/metal behind the paper that the dry erase board could be a magnet board too?
