How-To: Mini chalkboards

Over at CRAFT, Susan Beal whipped up these fantastic back to school mini chalkboards:

My daughter Pearl loves drawing with chalk, and when we were planning her second birthday party, I thought mini chalkboards would be the perfect toddler-friendly favor! My friend Ryan teamed up with me on the project and beautifully cut and prepared the wood for 25 mini-boards, and I did the painting and chalk-wrangling. The favors were a huge hit with the guests (including Ryan’s daughter Gigi), and I’ve gotten to see them in heavy rotation with Pearl’s buddies all summer!

This is a fun and easy project, perfect for making a few (or a few dozen) for your own kids, nieces, or nephews, or for a back to school, party, or birthday and holiday gifts.
