To go along with my theme of refashioning envelopes, I decided to make a mini dry-erase board from the window part of an envelope. It’s so easy and fun to make. I got the idea from Claudine Hellmuth’s project here.
- Envelope with window
- Decorative paper
- Magazine or book you can cut up
- Glue (I used Mod Podge)
Here’s all you do:
- Cut the window out of an envelope.
- Cut some pictures from a magazine.
- You need a thicker piece of paper for the backing, so cut that to size.
You should end up with something like this:
- Next, glue your pictures onto the backing
- Glue the backing and the window together
- Lastly, glue a decorative border around the front of the window.
Here’s my final result. It’s pretty amateurish, but a good first try:
Now I need to get some dry-erase markers and write some fun messages on it!
