Mini Dry-Erase Board

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
  • Scissors
  • 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!
