memo board

Supplies: picture frame - whatever size you want, fabric (something that isn't too dark or busy so you can see your writing over it), transparency sheets,

1.) Paint picture frame if desired. You can also decorate the frame if you want too. I added some lace and a rosette to fancy mine up a bit.

2.) Take out cardboard insert from frame. Cut out your fabric a couple inches larger (on all sides) than the piece of cardboard. Iron fabric.

3.) Place cardboard on wrong side of fabric. Fold fabric over cardboard and tape down on back.
4.) If you want to add a calendar or babysitter info sheet, all you need to do is print it out on a transparency sheet. Make sure to print it on the rough side of the transparency sheet. Put this sheet in between the fabric covered cardboard and the picture frame's glass.

5.) Insert cardboard, with fabric now attached, in frame. Close frame. You're done! Easy, huh?

6.) Now you can use a dry erase marker to write on the frame's glass. You can even put a sticky back piece of velcro on the dry erase marker and the other piece on the top of the you never lose your pen!
