Hello, Crafty Friends! Mitsyana Wright, here. I’m about to burst just waiting for spring to arrive! Bring on the flowers and blooms already! Luckily, I don’t need to wait for paper flowers to bloom because I can literally make them! Let me show you how to make your own gorgeous and functional DIY ColorBox floral chalkboard!



Clearsnap Products Used:
Other Products Used:

1. Apply chalkboard paint onto the ornate plaque using a paintbrush and allow to fully dry.

2. Once the chalkboard has completely dried, use blue painter’s tape to a section of the Art stencil you wish to apply.

3. Stencil the Whipped Spackle onto the chalkboard.

4. Die-cut Flowers and Leaves from mixed media paper.

5. Ink the leaves with ColorBox Blends Inks in Leaf and Frog. You can use a small stipple brush for blending but this is optional.

6. Add ColorBox Blends Inks in Hydrangea and Uniform to all the medium and large flowers. Then cover the small flowers in Ebony.

7. Make a small snip between every two petals.

8. Layer the flower die-cuts from biggest to smallest and fasten them together with a white metal brad.

9. Arrange flowers and leaves on the chalkboard as desired and use hot glue to secure.

10. Lastly, attach a piece of grosgrain ribbon to the back of the chalkboard with hot glue.

11. Adore your DIY ColorBox floral chalkboard!
