Make'N Take

This altered chalk­board stand is the make’n take Car­o­line with Maya Road had me teach­ing, last week­end at Scrap­book Expo in Grapevine.  It was super pop­u­lar so I thought I would share it with you blog read­ers.

Sup­plies Need­ed: Chalk­board Stand, Twine Cord­ing Gin­ger Root Brown, Vin­tage Felt Posies ~ Car­na­tion, Leaves, Trin­ket Pins ~ Vin­tage Round Pearl, Strips of Pat­terned Paper, Alpha Stamp Set, Archival Ink

Tools Used: Scis­sors, Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue Stick


  1. Using Archival Ink and an alpha stamp set, stamp your word onto a strip of pat­terned paper.
  2. Using a hot glue gun and hot glue stick, attach a leaf and word strip to the back of the felt flower.
  3. Cut a piece of twine cord­ing long enough to cre­ate a bow, attach bow to back of felt flower as shown.
  4. Accent flower embell­ish­ment with a round pearl trin­ket pin.
  5. Using a hot glue gun and hot glue stick, attach flower embell­ish­ment to front of chalk­board as shown in pho­to.

NOTE: If you want to use this as an actu­al chalk­board make sure to cure it by rub­bing chalk all over the chalk­board area and wipe clean using a paper tow­el. Now it’s ready for you to write on.
