Teacher's Gift


I was in a new little store here in town that is geared towards school/teacher supplies and saw this little dry erase board. My mind starting reeling and was so excited to get this and make something. I had visions of flowers in the corner with stazon flourishes up the side but opted for the easy route! shhh....
So this is what I came up with. It took me all of 15 min to make this. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to get the eraser attached. So I finally ended just gluing the ribbon around the edges and tying it to the board. I punched the holes with my crop a dile at 1" measurements along the bottom. Slipped ribbon thru them and then tied some ribbon at the top to hang it.
I got the board for $2.15 and the eraser was $1.25. Had the ribbon so that was no cost. Pen included with the board!
I know it's Christmas time not Halloween! Our school colors are Orange and Black. Hence the color combo.
