Step 1: Make the Dry Erase Board

Remove the stock photo from the magnetic picture frame and flip it over to the white side. Cover the paper with washi tape in a pattern. Fold the excess tape over to the back.

Step 2: Make Picture Frames

Cover the Polaroid-style frames with two different patterns of washi tape, being careful to match patterns and seams. Label them with a Sharpie if desired.

Step 3: Make Pen Holder

Give the magnetic pocket a light coat of white craft paint on the outside as well as inside. Allow to dry before covering the sides in coordinating washi tape patterns (don’t forget to cover the visible insides as well!)

Step 4: Make magnetic tissue box.

Cover the sides of the tissue box in coordinating patterns of tape. To make the monogram emblem, punch out the oval on the top of the box and cover in solid colored washi tape.

Fold the excess around to the back and use the permanent marker to write a fancy monogram on the front. Adhere to the tissue box with hot glue. Use hot glue to adhere two button magnets to the back of the tissue box to make it magnetic if desired.
