Chalkboard and Vinyl Labels With The Cricut


I shared this project last year, but wanted to share it again {as it is a good one} and one of my lovely friends, Amanda, is hosting an I {heart} my crafty cutter link up party this week.


Cutting vinyl with a Cricut is no new news.  But here is my secret :: you do not have to buy expensive vinyl in order to make chalkboard labels {or any other vinyl project like my drink bucket}.


You can buy black contact paper.  And it works just the same.  And you get a whole roll of it for the same price as two pieces of vinyl. 


Cut it to size and tape it onto your cutting mat {so it stays in place}.  To use as a chalkboard, write on it (I recommend chalkboard pens}, and wipe off with a damp towel.  Easy peasy.  No more expensive vinyl!

For more inspirational Cricut, Silhouette, die cutting madness, head on over to Amanda’s party.  And you can link up any time from now until Friday!
