At the beginning of every school year, the elementary school that my kids attend does a carnival with a big bake sale. Since I love dessert, it is my favorite stop at the carnival. The only problem that I have is that it is usually really busy and you don’t have a chance to ask the workers what each dessert it. So you guess and pick one that looks good and hope that you like it. Now, imagine if there was no guessing?!
I made these chalkboard place cards for a Christmas party last year. They were easy to make and only required chalkboard vinyl, chalk and cardstock. They are reusable (who doesn’t love that!) and add a super cute touch to a bake sale, lemonade stand, party food table or could even be used as actual place cards for guests names.
I used the Eye of Newt Halloween Label for the chalkboard vinyl and then stuck that to a rectangle of white cardstock. I then glued the white cardstock place card onto a grey cardstock place card for extra stability.
I also made some chalkboard tags. They are simply made with a white tag and then a rectangle piece of chalkboard vinyl going over the bottom.
You can see that the chalkboard doesn’t wipe completely clean after each use. I have used these place cards and tags three times now and you can still see a little remnant of the last ones but not enough to make the new bake sale food signs unreadable.
I like to use a thin chalkboard pencil to get a smaller and more legible script on the chalkboard. I have the Dritz Quilting Chalk Cartridge Set and it works well.
Now wouldn’t these chalkboard place cards be an excellent edition to your next school bake sale!
