Recycled Mini Dry Erase Board





Introduction: Recycled Mini Dry Erase Board

A dry erase board made out of recycled materials. This is a quick and easy 5 minute project, and it is great for small spaces like lockers or the fridge.

Step 1: Gather Tools and Materials

- scrap printer paper (not new)
- broken CD cases (Do not use new ones - this is supposed to be made of recycled materials!)

- scissors
- ruler
- tape
- pencil

Step 2: Insert Paper Backing

Cut the paper to size and tape the sides to secure.

Step 3: You're Done!

I did say it was quick and easy. If you make a bunch of these and attach them all to a backing, you can make a full-size dry erase board.

    I love reading about recycling projects that can convert our trash into something usable around the house. We need to constantly remind ourselves that useful things do not necessarily need to be expensive but instead things that we think are useless might just be the one thing that we truly need. All we need is some creativity and effort and before you know it, you might just get yourself brand new items like storage boxes, racks, shelves and many others.

    Fantastic! I just made one now! :)

    rubbing alcohol will take off dry erase marker... if it has been on too long.

    awesome!!!!!!! if you put a magnet on the back, you can put it on your locker :D

    thats insanely awesome cause I've been needing a dry erase board =]
    thank you!!

    cool! You might be able to make one out of old binders, there seems to be a ton of those being thrown out at the end of the school year. Unfortunately, I don't use cd cases, I use paper sleeves =(

    yeah, also on those pirated DVD/thin DVD cases--thay have the same material.

    "pirated DVD/thin DVD cases" Not really getting what you're saying here. Are you talking about those CD cases that are thinner than regular CD cases? Or are you talking about regular DVD cases?
