DIY Chalkboard Wrapping Paper

IMG_9763Introducing… DIY Chalkboard Wrapping Paper! I’ve been seeing this around in gift wrapping a lot lately and I’m absolutely loving the trend. Jenny & I are currently obsessing over Chalkapella‘s wrapping paper set. I’ve been enjoying experimenting with different styles and alternative uses for this! In the set, you get given a roll of chalkboard wrapping paper, a template where you can trace interesting shapes for your design work and of course some chalk to draw on the paper with!

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetI wanted to play around with gift wrapping and packaging, so I tried out some cool designs possible for birthday gifts or thank you gifts and honestly, the possibilities are endless! I was able to use my creativity and design whatever I liked.

They would also make awesome party or wedding invites.Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetAnd they not only provide white chalk but other colours too! Colours would be a great accent to whatever you decide to design :)
