Fun with Chalkboard Contact Paper

I've been a little obsessed with chalkboard contact paper lately.
It's just so fun to use - I can't help myself!

I picked some up this summer at Michael's when I had a 40% off coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket :)

Aren't these food labels so cute! I used them at the baby shower I recently hosted.
They were so easy to make.

I bought the wood rectangles at Michael's and the sticks are recycled Starbuck's coffee sticks.  I painted them both with white craft paint, glued the sticks onto the back of the wood and then cut the chalkboard paper to fit.  Just stick the chalkboard paper on the wood rectangle and write on them with chalk.  I prefer chalk pens - they are brighter than regular chalk and are easy to write with.

Next I made labels for my kitchen canisters.
I used this Marvy paper punch that I also purchased from Michael's.

I've been labeling every thing I can get my hands on.
Send help soon :)


  1. I have some of that and since I sell punches, I use it everywhere too. I asked Michaels if they had it and they said no but then we searched and found some. We ( Stampin' Up!) has some great punches. I used the Decorative Label punch and labeled a bunch of wicker baskets.

  2. What a cute idea! I will have to make a trip to Michael's! I just told my husband I wanted a label maker, and he told me no way, cus he "knows" he would come home from work, and there would be a label on everything from the food to the silverware. Now, I just may have to! :)

  3. Actually is it a good thing to label flour and powdered sugar. My dad was using powdered sugar instead of flour to coat baked chicken. LOL.

  4. What a super cute idea! I am definitely going to have to copy this! xo

  5. Thank you for sharing this! I'm using Pink Contact Paper to label toys boxes in my girl's room. It looks so cute and now everything is organized.
