Gift bags with "chalkboard paint"

This is a darling idea from the Autumn 2011
issue of Somerset Life Magazine...

Debbiedoo's blogging and blabbing
Linking up with DebbieDoos for the CopyCat Magazine Challenge



Try this inexpensive idea for holiday gift bags, school lunches, etc...





To begin, you will need lunch bags, black craft paint, foam brushes, chalk,
and any little decorative items you wish to use as an embellishment...
(if you pick up a copy of the Somerset Life Magazine turn to page 116)



Using your foam brush paint a rectangular shape onto the lunch bag...



Allow the paint to dry for about 20-30 minutes then create a design with chalk...



Snaz up the edge with some scrapbook scissors and then punch a hole near the top...



Fill the bag with goodies, lunch foods, or gifts...then tie up with a bit of raffia
and adorn with an embellishment such as the silk fall leaves I have here below...


How cute is this? 


As a true admirer of anything painted with chalkboard paint, this bag ranks
high on my list of sweet little projects! Wouldn't this be great to use for a 
birthday party filled with party favors??
