I'm tired of printing templates every Sunday to plan our upcoming week and meals. White boards are boring, too.
So, I thought outside the box and created my own.
I went around my house and garage and found:
- 1 10x13 picture frame
- 7 pieces of scrapbook paper (different designs) (one for every day of the week)
As much as I wanted them to match, I pushed myself to stray from the norm and go a bit mis-matched
- x-acto knife
- tape (couldn't find glue)
- ruler (I had to print one)
- dry erase marker
1. Divide the length of your frame by 7 (days of the week). 13/7=1.85"
2. Cut 7 strips of paper to the dimension above (1.85 x 10) in my case.
I liked using the glass from the frame as my guide. I'm not going to lie when I say I don't think I passed cutting a straight line in pre-school (or senior year of high school). I used an x-acto knife and the edge of the glass to get a perfect cut.
3. I used the extra length of the strips to make boxes for the date- again, I had to push myself to mismatch everything.
4. Tape or glue the date boxes to the strips
5. Tape or glue the strips to the back of the frame
