Today I am sharing the most simple way to make a Chalkboard Frame in a minute. No special took needed to make a perfect 45° angle for the framing.

Simple Frame & Chalkboard.

Quick tip for a minute frame 

This is so simple. You will need 4 strips of paper. For a full-size card, I used 2 strips of ¾ x 4¼ and 2 of ¾ x 5½. Overlap each corner and cut diagonal. Boom ready to frame your card. This is amazing. Just make sure to keep the order of each peace so all aligned perfectly. Look at these corner perfect fit and took a minute. No need for special tools either so flipping fun making frames.

  • In Good Taste Designer paper Use one of the wood prints. 2 of ¾ x 5½ and 2 of ¾ x 4¼

Chalkboard Tips 

To get the look of the chalkboard it is simple. Using a sponge and white craft ink smear ink on to the basic black card stock. Just enough to show the use of a chalkboard. Note that when the ink dry it will be lighter. 

You can use the white Stampin’ Chalk Marker to write on the back or you can stamp with the white craft ink. The Christmas frame I stamped and the school frame I write on them
