I'd never seen a black dry erase board before (well I never really go to the school/office supply aisle except to buy pens, pencils, or paper) and when I saw that you use neon dry-erase markers to write on it I thought "how cute!?!" and I knew I wanted to spice it up for my cousin who's in high school.
|originally priced at $19.99 but I nabbed it at 40% off! Gotta love Michael's coupons!|
The magnets that were in the store were cute but a little more than I wanted to spend so here comes the crafty part: How do I make my own super cute magnets at a low price? EASY! I had this collage of girly words on hand that I bought at Hobby Lobby when scrapbook paper was on sale 4/$1.00.
|Diva Words by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby)|
I cut some words/phrases (Diva, Beautiful, Absolutely Fabulous....), adhered the cut-outs to chipboard because the paper is thin, then adhered the magnet adhesive (small roll $1.00 at Michael's), and you got yourself cute, DIY magnets!
For the name plaque I took black chipboard and applied 1 coat of FolkArt ® Metallics - Sequin Black paint to make it shine, cut zebra paper 1 inch smaller and glued. Stenciled name, painted with Apple Barrel ® Gloss™ - Glow-In-The-Dark Pink paint and covered with pink glitter. And just for a little more pizazz I glittered a few zebra stripes.

DIY magnets= cute personal messages! Yes that does say Happy belated Birthday - I'm working on it.
