Flash Cards! Chalky Wishes

Flash Cards Chalky Wishes

We are rocketing 🚀, lucky readers,

into the frenzy of birthdays and parent holidays and weddings and popsicle celebrations that is summer. Ok so I’ve never had a popsicle celebration, but this year it is going to happen…and the real point is that we are already at the end of April!

So you need to have your card arsenal prepared. And I’ve got your back.

xo🍀,

Flash Cards Chalky Wishes

Materials:
Chalk Paint
paint brush
chalk (or a chalk pen…in which case your results will be more beautiful than mine…)
card stock
washi tape

Directions:

Step 1- line washi all along the border of the card face. This is just your masking tape, which I like because it tends not to rip the paper underneath.

Step 2- cover the middle section with a thin layer of chalk paint. Then pull off the washi immediately. Let dry

also I broke the chalk…another problem said chalk pen might avoid
