Have you tried this? Writing with chalk on paper?
Recently for my brother’s big day, I did just that. I made this “welcome” sign by writing with chalk on textured paper and then framed up to look like a chalkboard. The truth is I was about to buy a can of chalk paint for the job when my heart prompted me to try on paper.
Though I really don’t mind owning chalk paint, I’m glad to have found that paper makes a good mock blackboard. Hooray for paper!
The chalk wipes off easily with tissue or cloth, or with a rubber eraser.
I can’t stop thinking about its other possibilities…gift tag, speech bubble, writing board, label…
WOW… I didn’t know that–paper! I have to try! ;o) Very cute idea… Thanks for the tip, as always, Clara! Happy Day ((HUGS))
great idea! what type of paper did you use? :)
This is a super great idea! I can use it for my wedding too! Thank you! :)
I recently discovered that Daiso now stocks small chalk/white boards. Really cute and versatile too. A few different sizes but I think nothing bigger than A4.
Would be a good alternative if you need something more hardy or long term. :)
