Materials:

  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue in the gold bottle
  • Cereal box cardboard – 6” x 8” for each frame
  • Stylus – for scoring cardboard
  • Pencil
  • White spray paint (I use Rustoleum Flat White)
  • Tape
  • Chalks – either decorator chalks or the pastel chalks (sticks)
  • Brush – hard bristle (like a stencil brush)
  • Aleene’s Matte Spray Sealer
  • Clothespins

Instructions:

  1. To shape the cardboard into a frame, use a ruler and a stylus.Place the ruler ½” from the edge. Score the cardboard, by carefully running the stylus along the edge, keeping the ruler straight. Repeat on each side.

  7. For a finer line of glue, make a nozzle from tape. Place a 2-½” piece of tape onto the existing plastic nozzle.

  12. You can use either pastel chalks (sticks) or decorative chalks and the hard bristle brush.Rub your brush over the chalk to pick up the chalk ‘dust’. Then place brush onto your prepared frame. ‘Scrub’ the chalk dust into each area. Then lightly blow off the excess dust.
