All you do is open the frame and put the scrapbook paper in it, then put the back back on the frame. I put several sheets of paper in mine, including a calendar sheet, so you could change the look whenever you want.
You can also customize the frame anyway you want. But if you are in a hurry or feeling lazy, a plain frame works great too.
When you use a dry erase marker to write on the glass it wipes right off. Did you know this? It is a good thing to know if you ever want to leave notes on mirrors or windows.
Here are a couple notes about the supplies.
Frame-If you buy the frame at Hobby Lobby they aren't with the regular frames. They are back by the framing section with the wall frames. That is why mine doesn't have a stand on the back. You could probably have a stand added, but that would cost extra.
Paper-You want things that you are going to be able to see writing over. Don't use really dark paper or something that is very busy.
General-Do not pay full price for any of these supplies. Wait for the paper go to on sale at Hobby Lobby and either wait for the frame or use your 40% off coupon. I know this has been said before, but it is crazy to pay full price at Hobby Lobby...unless it is a genuine 9-1-1 worthy crafting emergency.
So here it is, a cute and customizable to do list.
This picture didn't turn out real great, but if you check the Desk Set blog entry you can see one in action.
