Supplies from The Digichick Shop:
Chipboard or cardboard, chalkboard paper, tape measure ribbon, paper doilie, chalk, baker’s twine, mini clothes pin, paper flower, glitter star, ticket, library clip, button, twill tape, navy blue cardstock, manilla tag, seam binding.
Have fun peeking through all the pretties contained in the A is for Apple Boutique Collab Kit and then print out several embellishments and a backgroud paper of your choice.
Cut a piece of chipboard (or cardboard) 8 1/2″ x 6″. Cut a piece of chalkboard paper (mine is from Stampin’ Up!) to fit inside the blackboard frame that you printed from the A is for Apple kit. Layer them onto the chipboard and navy blue cardstock.
Next comes the fun part … cut out and arrange the embellishments you printed from the A is for Apple kit around your little chalkboard frame. When you are happy with the placement of all embellishments, adhere everything down with adhesive.
I added an alphabet strip vertically along the left side of my chalkboard. I spritzed a manilla tag with some glimmer mist to give it an aged look and then adhered one of the flash card embellies onto the tag. A sweet stack of books, an apple, a pencil and some Mint Green Tea seam binding complete this adorable little tag!
In the upper right corner, I added a bracket and gingham button from the kit along with a chipboard glittered star.
Along the right side I added the silhouette of a girl at her school desk, a button and baker’s twine and a library clip that is threaded with more baker’s twine which holds the piece of chalk!
So there you have it, friends! The sweetest little chalkboard message center … suitable to give as a gift, hang in your child’s room or keep for yourself!
Thanks for visiting with me today! I hope you enjoyed my project 🙂
