A Christmas Gift to Make for Grandparents
Steps to make a photo collage for grandparents using Chalk Couture
- Remove reusable transfer from backing and place down on magnetic chalkboard. Fuzz the back of the transfer if new to make removal easier. (see back of transfer for instructions)
- Use squeegee to spread a thin layer of Chalkology Paste over silkscreen areas of transfer. Scrape excess paste back into the jar.
- Remove transfer to reveal design
- Allow paste to dry
- Arrange photos on surface and attach with magnets
- Place command strips on back for hanging if needed

The Chalk Couture reusable silkscreen transfers allow anyone to create beautiful chalk art every time.
After applying a thin layer of the Chalkology Chalk paste, simply “peel and reveal” to see the perfect design underneath.
We used small magnets to attach the photos so they can changed as the kids grow!
