Chalkboard Fun

I just wanted to share a few projects that I designed using the chalkboard vinyl that Stampin’ UP! had carried this year in their Definitely Decorative line.  Although the rolls of vinyl are gone there are still a few chalkboard vinyl pieces that are available on the retiring list that can be used for similar projects. 

Below you’ll find three of the projects that I offered at my chalkboard vinyl class* this week to show various mediums on which to adhere the vinyl other than your walls or cabinets. If you had purchased the vinyl and have not explored its uses yet, I hope this inspires you to get it out and start using it for your summer events! 

This is a 4” x 6” frame.  A great place to leave messages.  How fun for a graduation, new college roommate, sorority sister, or friend!  Leigh and Alex decorated their mini message boards with the Decor stencils, Elegant Trio.  (Who knew chalk could be used with the Stampin’ UP! stencils! How fun!)

Here are some fun butterflies that are cute and bright for your summer parties!  TheyChalkboard Sticks can be used as plant stakes, drink swizzle sticks, package toppers, bookmarks, lawn markers,  table placards or even at a party to identify your dishes! I’m sure you can come up with plenty of other ideas too!

Personalized Gift Box

I love these little pillow boxes, but add some chalkboard vinyl and it becomes  a unique gift box that can be personalized with names, dates or your own unique artwork. Perfect  party favors for showers, weddings, graduations, birthdays etc!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!


*I have a couple of classes available for sale if you are interested in doing these projects on your own.  Contact me directly for details.
