I recently came across a 'Make your own art journal banner' on pinterest and I really liked the idea of a banner. I have also been learning to make watercolor backgrounds so, I wanted to put the two together and make something else...A dry erase board!

People generally make dry erase boards with glass and frames. I decided to do it a little differently and therefore decided to use sandwich bag instead of the glass and make my own banner frame out of cardboard.

I used,
- Cardboard - 2 Pieces - 24 x 13.8 cm
- A transparent sandwich bag
- Few sheets of plain white paper
- Watercolor
- Stapler
- Glue
- A metal chain

Step 1: Watercolor background

On a plain white paper I painted a water color background of my choice. You can see how to paint it here.
That's really smart!! So cool

that's a cool idea, but I just recently picked up whiteboard paint. let's me make a wall my board xD
Thanks LownIgnitus! :)
<p>Very nice. I especially like how you gave it a custom watercolor background. It's the artistic touches that seperate us from the savages...</p><p>However, my kid and his cousin would break that in 5 minutes. That is why I painted a blackboard onto a CONCRETE wall.</p>
<p>Thanks Mike! :)<br></p>
I did something like this accept I used a picture frame
<p>Wow ! It is a pretty cool idea. Simple. Comes cheap also. I have to make two or three such boards. Thank you !</p>
<p>I used the idea of savaging sandwich bags to create my own simpler, austere spin to this project. I entered it into the remix contest, and here's the link!: <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Quick-and-Simple-Dry-Erase-Board/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Quick-and-Simple-D...</a></p><p>Thanks for the inspiration! :3</p>
