Altered Chalkboard Easels

While organizing my stash I found some 3D stickers that I purchased years ago.  I’m talking over 10 years.  While strolling the $1.50 aisle at Michael’s, these cute mini chalkboard easels caught my eye.  At first I was thinking about different themes, but I went back to my original plan and this was my creation. The receiver will receive two pieces of chalk wrapped in Tim Holtz jute.  

The Card Connection (Embroidery theme)
 This was a quick and fun project so you know I’m going to get a few more to alter.
 It's better to paint the frames when you put a coat of Gesso on it first and then add your acrylic paint.  I went to my stash for a few embellishments to add to the 3D stickers.
Jolee stickers (crocheting theme)

Easy, peasey....Don't you agree?  I spent under $5 for the mini chalkboard easels and chalk. They will make great gifts.

Happy New Year
