When I was asked to create something fun for a sponsored post with Folk Arts Multi Surface Paints and the just launched Handmade Charlotte Stencils I immediately knew what I wanted to make. I am the queen of library fines. It’s embarrassing. I am doing my best not to pass this bad trait down to my kids so I wanted to make a place to keep library books that will also serve to remind us when they are due. The other craft I wanted to make was a special place for my son to show off his school work. Best part is that I could use the same stencils and paints for both projects.
Gather your materials. You will need a canvas bag , cork board, Folk Arts new Multisurface Paints, sponge brushes, stencil tape, chalk anything paint and Handmade Charlotte stencils. I like using paper plates to pour the paint into because I can just toss it after.
Start by planning out your design. I used the punch outs from the stencils to do this.
Start painting. The paints dry quickly which is nice when you have little hands trying to help.
For the bag start by taping off the chalk board area. Paint the black on. While it’s drying add the stars using the stencils. Once it’s dry add the chalk board surface paint. I love this paint because it dries clear and turns almost anything into a chalk board!
Let cure for 24 hours before using as a chalk board.
It didn’t take long to fill this with books.
Or add the cork board to my son’s room!
I loved these paints and our friends over at Micheal’s do too. You can find all the paint supplies over at your local store and to celebrate they are giving away a Folk Art Multisurface Paint Prize Pack and $100 Gift Card - Check it out here !
