What? Chalkboard tags? Yes, I have another great couple of projects today! What are two of my favorite things? Chalkboards and my Silhouette CAMEO™. Here you can see that I’ve been busy with both!
Last Spring, I got these doors from my niece Marie. I’ve been thinking and thinking of what I can do with them. After making the original Beverage Tags, I decided to make some more. So, I popped out all of the slats in the top of ONE door.
I cut them with my compound miter saw.
Then, I drilled the holes, and painted them with some chalkboard spray paint.
I tied some jute on them.
Now that I have all of those Chalkboard Tags made, I have been thinking of how I am going to package them to sell at Glendale.
I bought some baggies in the jewelry dept at Walmart, but they were too small. Then I ordered some cellophane bags off of Ebay, and they were perfect. However, I needed some labels.
Silhouette America sent me some of their newest products that were unveiled at CHA over the Summer:
I chose the silver foil paper. I used the print & cut feature and printed these tags on my printer. You can see the black registration marks, that allow the CAMEO to know just where to cut.
I loaded the sheet of paper into the CAMEO using the mat.
After the tags were cut, I removed the foil from the mat, and then peeled off the excess foil.
I placed the sticker (label) onto my cellophane bag.
I stuffed the bag with my chalkboard tags and sealed it. Packaging really IS what sells, right?
Silhouette America is having a great promotion between now and September 30, 2012. Check out this great deal:
Although Silhouette generously supplied me with the specialty papers, all opinions are my own.
