Picture Frame Dry Erase Board

I saw this idea for using a picture frame as a dry erase board on Jill's Card Creations a few weeks ago & loved it! What a great idea! This was so easy to make too. I just got a 12" x 12" frame at Michael's with a 50% off coupon so it only cost me $4.50. Then I decorated a sheet of designer paper by stamping "notes" on it & adhering some coordinating felt flowers with brads. Then I just put this inside of the frame under the glass & now I can write all over it with a dry erase marker! I also tied the ribbon around the frame before I put the glass back in so that it would stay in place. I made this to match the colors in our office/craft room. I'm thinking this would make a great class too. You could use any designer paper to coordinate in your house. Let me know what you think!
Here's a close-up of some of the details:
