Like a lot of people, I'm a big fan of the chalk craze that's going around so I decided to make some chalk labels to add to my kitchen jars. I liked the look of these Pier1 containers but I wanted them to be removable so that I could wash the jars, and didn't want to paint them myself. Here's what I did.
The only thing I bought for this project was some of that peel-off cut-to-size chalkboard paper from Michaels.
My mom is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator so a couple years ago I was able to talk her into getting me a Big Shot. If you haven't heard of it before, they are like a scrapbooking Cricut, and lets you cut paper into shapes. Only they aren't as expensive as a Cricut. Or as prone to breaking. Essentially, the Big Shot is just a big paper punch. Only much better.
I decided to use some of the flower templates that I had and worked out pretty good. If you don't have a Big Shot, you could always trace a pattern on the back of the paper and cut it out. It has a nice grid so it would be easy, though I don't have the steady hand to get a good straight cut so I'm glad I have the Big Shot.
This paper is amazing. I think it would be nice to cut out more shapes and stick them around the house too, but the pantry is a good start.
Now if only I could get my handwriting to be as neat as these labels...
