I received this kick ass roll of skull and crossbones ribbon from my friend Amanda and have been dying to put it to use.
Recently, my boss asked me to create a dry erase board for weekly tracking purposes but didn’t want it to be a typical calendar. So I got crafty because the choices at the store are just so ordinary and if you’ve been reading this blog very long, you know that just won’t do.
For $13.00, I found an 18”x22” magnetic wipe board framed in cork at Target (all office supply stores were at least 25% higher in price for the same item).
Here’s what I used in addition to the board:
First, I measured how many columns I would need with a ruler.
Then I applied the tape to the back of the ribbon.
And stuck the ribbon to the board (a ruler helps to set it straight).
I found magnets with the days of the week to use at the top of columns and coordinating dry erase markers do the rest!
A simple board (bedazzled to whatever degree you wish) with rock star statement that took about $20 to create. Easily tailored to be used as a daily family calendar, a menu planner, chore list, or weekly concert schedule (as shown above)…and best of all, you can always change the ribbon to update the look for next to no cost.
