"I have a really simple tutorial for you today that could be useful for labeling scrap and art supplies, but I can also see possibilities in the pantry, a child's play room or for shop owners, what about glass containers for flowers or brads etc. I am in the process of setting up my primary school classroom at the moment, and since it is an art classroom, I need lots of storage for supplies. I had heard of chalkboard contact before and wanted to give it as try. Imagine my delight when I saw how incredibly well it went through my Grand Caliber. It looks like plain black book covering contact, only you can write on it with chalk. How awesome! So I set about gathering lots of containers."

Step 1: 

Cover your containers with patterned paper or spray paint. 

Step 2: 
From cardstock, die cut a circle or doily shape depending on the size of your container. Adhere to your container. Apply a sealant over your paper.

 Step 3: 
Die cut your favourite label shape from the chalkboard contact. Peel of the backing paper and adhere directly to your project. 

 Tip: While regular chalk works great, liquid chalk pans give a much bright result and tend to stay out a little better.
