Replaceable Thoughts




Introduction: Replaceable Thoughts

Have you ever carefully created a drawing on a whiteboard and then realized you need to change it, forcing you to erase  half of it and redraw it?

Here's an approach that will let you rearrange white board diagrams at will!

Step 1: Prerequisites

You will need:

A magnetic white board
A sheet of magnetic canvas (shown)
Dry erase self sticking sheets (shown)

A paper cutter

Step 2: Remove the Sticky Backing

Carefully remove the sticky backing on the whiteboard material.

Be careful to keep the adhesive surface free of dust or grit

Step 3: Adhere the Sheets

Carefully align the square edges of the two sheets.

Slowly burnish the dry erase adhesive sheet to the magnetic one as depicted.

Step 4: Avoid Trapped Dust

If you happen to get a little bit of grit underneath the top surface, you might be better off leaving it there.  Detaching and reattaching the sheets can result in creases, like the one in the second photo.

Step 5: Cut Into Assorted Sizes

Using the cutting board, cut the dry erase notes into assorted sizes.

Step 6: Enjoy Your Relocatable Thoughts!

Now you can lift and replace key ideas without having to redraw them!

This could also be useful for UML diagrams, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Heh. If you're into that sort of thing. This is a great idea. You can even print onto magnetic sheets if you reuse a lot of the same text.
