I never realized that glass would work as a dry erase board. On Pinterest there are so many different things and ways you can do them.
Our daughter is serving in the Navy and she will be deploying, leaving behind her family which consists of her husband and two little girls ages 2 and 1. She has deployed before but, she did not have her girls then.
Talking with her we came up with the idea for a communications area that she can set up to have important things all together.
We know it is not going to be easy for her family and her to be a part but, if there is anything I can do to help I will.
Here are the items I used.
5x7 frame (2) Purchased at Dollar Tree
8.5x11 Document frame (2) Purchased at Dollar Tree
12x16 frame (1) Purchased at Hobby Lobby on sale half off
Erase pens 3 to a pack with eraser on top. Purchased at Dollar Tree
Small metal cup holder for pens.
Command strips for back of the frames. They are renting their home so this will hold and not put holes in the walls.
The first one she wanted was a menu. I checked different sites for ideas and then I just created my own.
I designed it using my Silhouette Cameo. I then printed it out on this water colored paper, put it in the frame and it was done. Love how it looks.
To me everything needed a title, so my husband came up with this.
Then I took the last 5x7 frame and made a to do list with check boxes so it can be marked off. For this I used the water color paper that is yellow and green tone it blends all the others together. My Silhouette Cameo was also used to do this.
Then for the days of the week I used my water color paper and I did the five days one color and the weekends a different color. Since the days of the week do not change I went ahead and did a print and cut. The days of the weeks are 2 inches wide and the height is 0.500
Then I made one for the month, which is also cut using my Silhouette Cameo and water color paper. It is 4 inches wide and 0.490 inches high.
All of this was taped on the back of the paper that came with the frame, I used some double stick tape. My husband measured and lined everything up so that it was all straight. Really love how this turned out. I just hope my daughter and family will use this and it will help them out.
