DIY Mini erase board

Supplies I used

-Cereal box
-adhesive magnets (found at craft stores)
-scrapping paper
-Zig glue and tape
-sheet protectors/transparancies or clear plastic wrap--->works the best in my opinion)

Cut out the shape you want from the box, paper and the sheet protector. Decorate the paper first, try not to make it too bulky since the sheet protector still has to go on top. Try finding some ribbon or brad to secure the sheet protector to the scrapping paper without the tape/adhesive showing up. If you use the clear plastic wrap all you need to do is cut it out and smooth it on top of the scrap paper, the static from the plastic and the paper will automatically keep it together. Glue paper to the shape you cut out from the box and add the magnets on the back. This is just a simple one I made, I'm planning on making others with a contraption for the dry erase marker. Now my cereal boxes have another purpose in life...
