Today I thought I would show you a dry erase board project that I made for my daughter’s dorm door using the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper. I thought this would be a fun way for her friends to leave her notes when they needed to and she was out.
Kaitlin is a music major and so I wanted to not only tie in her interest but also her dorm room color scheme. So to create this dry erase board I used our Modern Medley Designer Series Paper along with our great Regals Color Collections Designer Series Paper Stacks. Added some of our great letters from the Typeset Alphabet Die and voila’!
We got to meet up with Kaitlin this weekend for her Drum Core performance at the Southern Showdown. A few of her old high school friends went along with us, so before I packed the dry erase board into her box, I had them leave some messages on it for her – It worked great and I thought that the messages from her friends would be a nice surprise when she opened the box.
A few of her friends also helped me pick out the final element that you see at the bottom– a greeting from one of our retired stamp sets, Music Speaks. I just loved the sentiment “Music speaks the beauty words cannot express!” Originally I had wanted to put “notes” on the Decorative Label Punch. Get it? Music Major – notes?
I made several different versions of the Decorative Labels that she can swap out since I couldn’t decide which one I liked best. (I just tucked them in the back after adding a little of our Multipurpose Liquid Glue (item 110755) and allowing it to dry so that it was like a post it note.
It was great seeing her for a couple of hours and Larry and I were really proud of her. CV not only placed first in this competition, but in the Southern Region and broke their own record for highest score. A big deal if your familiar with marching.
