Golden chalkboard

Today 9 December we are all about the chalkboard look but with a twist… a punchy black and gold ribbon that’s hard to miss…..all against a glittery gold background to turbo charge the Christmas feel. I really like chalkboard and in fact last year did my whole Christmas wrap in it. To make the chalkboard look work you have to have decent black paper (80 gsm no less) and a decent white marker (I go for a uniball white marker). you also have to give up on the images and the text looking absolutely perfect – they are meant to be appealing but freehand – so it doesn’t matter if every leaf on your wreath is slightly different.
