My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 3!

Hi crafty peeps!  Welcome to My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas Day 3!  I hope you've been enjoying what my design teammates have been sharing that past couple of days!  I know, I have!  Today I wanted to share with a fabbie treat bag that resembles chalkboard art!  Chalkboard art is so hot right now!  I've had a thing for chalkboards for along time.  I'm not sure if it's the black and white thing or just that it's sort of "old timey"!  Either way I love them, so when I came across a Betsy Veldman's blog showing this effect, I knew I had to do it!


Because I need to make 50 of these treat bags, I wanted to keep them simple and the price down.  So I used the stitched circle die from Build a Banner Kit to create a button! 

 
This video shows the step by step process for this awesome look!
