Supplies: DIY Shop collection: (366660) - chalkboard cards, (369056) – Gold Glitter Tape; Shimelle True Stories collection: (370704) – Grey Floral Paper, (370717) – Frappe Paper, (370719) – Berry Infusion Paper, (370745) – Wood Buttons; Fine & Dandy collection: (370100) – Toothpicks
How to: Cut a chalkboard card base in half to use as the base for the project or trim chalkboard paper to 4x5.5". Using your die cut machine and white sketch pen, find a font or multiple fonts, type your statement, and sketch it on your card base so that it looks like chalk on the chalkboard. Next, cut gold glitter tape in half lengthwise and add it to the outside as a frame. Then cut (15) 20 1/2" red and blue stars. Stitch them together as a garland and string them across the top of your card. Using your die cut machine again, cut a pinwheel out of red and blue paper, fold together, and add an enamel wood button to the center. Cut a coordinating sheet of paper and insert it into the frame as your background. Add your new project by adhering it to the front of the glass.
