Faux Quilted Butterfly Chalkboard Sign

Sharing is caring!

Excited to be a part of this Ann Butler Designs and Walnut Hollow Blog Hop!
I have been crafting with Walnut Hollow wood products for as long as I can remember.  Great quality wood surfaces, wood burning tools and fabulous customer service!
And by now you all know how obsessed  enthusiastic I am about the Ann Butler Design Faux Quilting Stamps!  While searching and pinning all kinds of quilt patterns and quilt blocks I came across this Butterfly quilt block and fell in LOVE.  It is the PERFECT accent to the Mini Hinged Sign from Walnut Hollow.  Don't you just love it when two worlds collide like that to create a great design?  I know I do!
Now, on to my project!
MATERIALS:
INSTRUCTIONS:
1.)  Smooth all edges of Hinged Sign with sanding block.  Remove fine saw dust with damp paper towel.  Apply two even coats of Chalkboard Paint, according to directions and let dry for 24 hours.
  
2.)  Select pastel paper to coordinate with the Ann Butler Crafters Inks, then stamp two 2″ Triangles, one 1″ Triangle and two 1″ Squares.  Use photos above as a guide for placement of stamps on paper.
3.)  Cut out Faux Quilting shapes and dry fit two sets on work surface until you create the color and pattern combinations that you are happy with.  Attach first set to white cardstock with Xtreme Permanent Adhesive Runner (this stuff ROCKS!).  Cut out with scissors.  Attach wire antennae and second set to backside of white cardstock.  Fold in center to crease and attach to top of Hinged Sign with Tacky Glue, let dry.
4.)  Write a message on your Faux Quilted Chalkboard Sign and enjoy!
This sign is so versatile and it could be used in so many different ways – as a cheery greeting in your front entry; as table numbers for a Wedding; as a menu sign in your kitchen or even as a Teacher appreciation gift – the possibilities are endless!
