Chalkboard inspired gift wrap!

I got this idea from Pinterest.  It was recommended to use black butcher paper, which I found at Hobby Lobby, but it had a shine to it, not really sure how much I like that.  I experimented with white chalk, white paint pens, white lead pencils and white oil pastel stick.  Each gave it's own finish.

I found black drawing paper at Dick Blicks and really liked using the chalk pencils on it.  Probably my favorite.  I made some holiday sign artwork to frame using this application.

I used the black butcher paper with the oil pastel stick for my gift wrap.  It was fun and I will use it, again and again for gift wrap!  The gift "getters"  loved it.
