School Days Altered Chalkboard

Happy Thursday everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries.  I hope you are having a great day.  I have looked forward to today for awhile now.  Not only do I get the chance to share a fun new project using 3 Girl JAM products, but today is day 1 of 3 days off from work.  Woo Hoo for days off!

If school hasn't started where you live, it likely will soon.  How about a project to commemorate the new school year?

However, before I show you the finished project, I want to show you the fabulous 3 Girl JAM items I used.

I started my project using Mistletoe and Holly Berry ribbon.  I added a few 3 Girl JAM Vintage buttons, some thread, and viola... have some pretty little flowers.  To make them, I sewed a simple basting stitch along one edge of the Holly Berry ribbon and then gathered the ribbon, sewing it in the back to form a flower.  I then tacked a piece of Mistletoe to the back of the flower to make a leaf and sewed a vintage button for the center of the flower.  This was a great start to my final project.

Other items that you might need include:
Bingo Cards from BMuse
Graphic 45 paper - An ABC Primer
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo and Black Soot
Basic Grey letter stickers
Tim Holtz Vintage Photos stickles
Mod Podge

Thanks for stopping by today.  For a complete tutorial on the steps taken to make this project, please click on over to DJ's Sundries.  Have a great day!
