Do you want to make beautiful Pinterest Worthy Home Decor for this holiday season? Check out the Holiday Joy – Chalk Box Kit!
Step 1: Order your Chalk Box – you can grab it here
While you are there, I would suggest picking up a small squeegee and a board eraser (so you are ready to clean the board off to reuse when it is time to put the holiday decor away. )
Step 2: Wait patiently for your box to show up. Shipping takes about 1-2 weeks depending on where you live.
Step 3: Pull everything out of the box 😀 (maybe do a little happy dance).
Step 4: Prep your Paste – I did a quick video on Facebook here to show how to “kneed” the paste to prep it. I recommend only opening one paste at a time.
Step 5: Prep the Transfer (this is very important)
5a. Flip the transfer over so you see the white side. I like to write “back” the name of the transfer and an arrow towards the top so it is easy to re-align the backing after you clean it.
5b. You are going to want to FUZZ the transfer – this is a larger transfer for either 2 of our fuzzing clothes or a large terry clothe towel. Get it set up flat before you do the next step.
5c. Peel – gently peel the transfer from the backing, careful not to pull it too tightly as you can stretch the material. Always pull from the middle with straight pressure.
5d. Apply the transfer to the board. If you are using one of our Chalk Couture Chalk Boards, you do not need to prep the surface at all. If you can, get a second set of hands to help you place the transfer.
5e. Rub the transfer with your fingers (paying special attention around the openings) to make sure there are no air bubbles
Step 6: Apply the paste – as you can see in the video, we did the Joy in white – after applying the paste, we peeled it up to just past the “Joy” then re-applied it. I like to give it a few more seconds before re-applying the transfer. Keep going. Repeat for each colour
Step 7: Remove the entire transfer. Make sure you have a water bath to wash the transfer in. (another good use for the board erasers is to clean the transfer). Important – DRY STICKY SIDE UP either on the microfibre side of the fuzzing clothe or a towel.
Step 8: Re-apply the dried transfer to the backing – hang your masterpiece and enjoy!
