After seeing Amy at WhisperWood Cottage making paper chalk boards (see her tutorial here) I decided to try some myself. I had several paper bags, some with store logos and some without, and decided to try making chalk board paint gift bags. I just painted over the store logos and used a mirror to draw an oval on the ones without logos. After letting the paint cure for 24 hours, I used the side of a piece of chalk to condition the paint.
After the paint was conditioned, I decorated the bags with tissue paper, ribbons and little gift tags that I had. You can write whatever you want on the bags and use them for any occasion.
Here are the results.
And there you have it. I'm linking up to Amy's Chalk Board Linky Party . Check it out.
Happy chalk board painting.
