A new year is coming, and that means it’s time to get our schedules in order. This can be tricky when you have a family, but one of the best ways to coordinate schedules is with a family whiteboard centrally located in your home. With appointments, meetings, and different happenings, it’s SO helpful to have one spot that everyone can check so we know what everyone else has planned. This tutorial shows you how to make a make a personalized whiteboard with magnets that work for your family!

Supplies for this project include the obvious — a magnetic framed dry erase white board. I am using a 17″ x 23″ whiteboard I got from Amazon — the links to everything are in the material list above.

To create the calendar on the whiteboard, you want permanent adhesive vinyl — one roll of black will do nicely. Standard grip transfer tape will also be necessary to get the vinyl onto your white board.

To make the calendar perpetual, we’ll create magnets from printable magnet sheets. These are really cool! Then we can move everything around as needed.

To print the magnets, you’ll want an inkjet printer. I’m using the HP Envy 7155, but most inkjet printers will do a great job here.

And, of course, we need a way to cut the vinyl, and I’m using the Cricut Explore cutting machine to do that. Other things you need are the green standard grip mat to cut your vinyl on, a brayer to adhere your vinyl to the mat, a weeding tool to remove excess vinyl, and a scraper tool to stick your vinyl really well to your whiteboard.

Now you just need the pattern for the calendar and magnets. You’ll find my free designs over on my blog! So let me show you where to find the designs, and then I’ll show you how to personalize, cut, and create your whiteboard!
