Chalkboard File Labels

I love those table top filing boxes. It allows me to keep my papers organized (Hint, Hint! They are the perfect size for sorting scrapbooking paper!) But I can NEVER find the little labels that come with them. I also tend to change what is filed where and with what in my desk filing box since most of what goes in there is in progress work so instead of writing and scratching out and writing again, I’ve started making chalkboard labels for my files. Easy, erasable and fun, I’m in love with them and I hope you will be too!

Here’s what you need:

Chalkboard Contact paper (or use Chalkboard paint)

Craft knife and stencil or Die cutting machine

1. Trace and cut or use a decorative tag shape die to cut out a fun shape from the chalkboard contact paper.

2. Peel off, stick to the front of your file and write (and erase) away!

    I was just wondering…did you use the 18″ x 6′ roll of Contact brand chalkboard paper? If so, what are you using to write on it? I tried regular and dustless chalk and can’t seem to write on it. I covered an old dry erase board that I wasn’t using, so the surface is plenty hard and smooth. Do you use “chalk markers”? Btw, I came here by way of Jamie’s hub (above). Thank you for your post!
