Wonderfully Wasted: Dry erase frame

Welcome to another Wonderfully Wasted Washi Tape Wednesday!!!

Today I wasted my Washi tape making a cute dry erase frame.  Details below.

I started with a $1 frame from "the M store" (you know, Michael's...)

I took the pieces out of the frame and got my Washi tape ready along with a 4 X 6 piece of cardstock to fit inside the frame.  For this I used my Botanical Gardens Designer Washi Tape, which is retiring.  Get it while you can, so you can waste it! Lol.

Next, I took one of the plastic pieces from the frame and started to cover it in Washi tape and fold it around to the backside.  I found when I put it together at this point you could see my folds of Washi tape, so I added extra pieces to cover both sides entirely.

Like this...

When I finished adding the Washi tape I put it together like a sandwich as shown here.  
The bottom is the piece of Whisper white cardstock, then my Washi tape piece then the other plastic cover from the frame.  The top piece is what helps it then become a dry erase board.  Slip all three pieces into your frame and voila, you're all set!

After I finished, I felt like it was missing something.  So I added Washi tape around the outer edge.  Then covered a scrap piece with more Washi tape and punched out a scalloped circle using the scalloped circle punch.  I stamped a flower from Endless Thanks in Daffodil delight ink and punched that flower out to add on top as a little decoration.

Happy Wasting!
