Chalkboard labels and a little giveaway

Whilst browing at my local DIY superstore this weekend {I know I'm weird but I do actually like to browse in these shops} I came across blackboard vinyl by Fablon.

I picked up a roll knowing I'd find plenty of uses for it.

I recently bought a Silhouette Cameo which I am still getting to grips with.
I bought some of their images and turned one into a shape I like to cut for my Etsy cards - I have labels made by another Etsy seller and stick them on the cards.  

I cut an A4 size piece of the fablon and cut out shapes with the Silhouette.  

Simply peel the backing off and you have really cute chalkboard labels.  The chalk wipes clean off and you can use them over and over again.  I love this stuff and know I'm going to find a load of uses for it.  I like the idea of making a wall calendar something like this one for the craft room.

                      I like the idea of cutting out the numbers to reveal the wall colour underneath.

       And now for the giveaway
              {just a little one}

When I get back from New York on Sunday I'll pick 6 people to give a set of 6 chalkboard labels away to.

Leave a comment and/or follow me and your name will be drawn at random when I get back.

Not much of a giveaway I know, but a freebie is a freebie and these are super cute after all!!
