Good Morning! Today I hope to inspire you to make a gift using Wallies Dry Erase Sheets.
I made a gift for me (Prayer Board) and one for a friend of mine (framed white message board).
First we will learn how to make the framed white message board.
Step 1: Find an old frame that needs a new look. My wonderful friend Stephanie had several lying around so she gave me this one!
Roll of cork
Heavy duty stapler
Step 2: Place the frame on the foam board and trace the frame out using a pencil
Step 3: Using a utility knife cut the frame out of foam board
Step 4: Adhere the cork to the foam board using Spray Adhesive (make sure to follow the directions on the can). Spray the spray adhesive on the foam board. Place cork on foam board. Clamp down the edges so the cork will adhere to the foam board easier.
Step 5: Once it is dry cut the center piece of cork out. Using spray adhesive glue the form board to the wooded picture frame. It will look like the above picture.
Step 6: Cut out a piece of foam that will fit in the middle of the frame. Adhere the Wallies Dry erase sheet to the foam board.
Step 7: Using a staple gun place staples in the back of the frame (as shown above) to keep the foam board in place.
Step 8: Using the 1/2 inch scor-tape place it along the edge of the inside frame.
Using the 1/4 inch scor--tape place it as shown in picture.
I repeated this steps along the edge of frame. See finished photo for clarification.
Step 9: Cover the clothes pins with paper. I used 1/4 inch score tape to adhere the paper to the clothes pin. I also used 1/4 inch score tape to adhere the clothes pin to the cork.
Step 10: Decorate! I used buttons around the inner frame. I made this for a scrapbooking friend of mine!
Now to make the prayer board that I made for myself!
Letter stickers (I used Thickers)
Xyron 510 sticker maker
Patterned Paper (I used Scenic Route)
Step 1: Using regular printer paper trace the clip so you will have a pattern to use. Use the pattern to cut out a piece of patterned paper that will fit on the clip.
Step 2: After you cut your paper to fit then put mod podge on the board with a foam brush. Place paper on top and let it dry.
Step 3: Once the modge podge on the bottom is dry place a layer of modge podge on top of the paper.
Step 4: Cut the white board to fit between the top and bottom papers. Doesn't have to be perfect as the edges will be covered with ribbon.
Step 5: Place 1/4 scor-tape along where the paper and white board meet. Attach ribbon to scor-tape.
Step 6: Color image. I ran my image in my Xyron to laminate it. Adhere to board. Decorate with letter stickers.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and that it inspires you to make a gift for someone or for yourself!
