Fancy Frugal Life: Chalkboard Lunch Box

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Chalkboard Lunch Box

I saw this idea for the first time a couple weeks ago in the Shutterfly booth at Blogher and had to have one. I'm not sure how much theirs is...but mine was a whole dollar.

I found this cute metal lunch box at my Goodwill for $1.00 and used the rest of my Krylon chalkboard spray paint on the inside top.

How perfect to write your child love notes in their lunch! Right?

.....and little reminders too! :)


P.S. Stay tuned for my metal stamped label tutorial for lunches and backpacks :)

This is ADORABLE! My kids are all grown so can't use this but it is darn cute and clever!!

Cute! I have no kids, but I could make one for myself. This is the second blog post I read today that uses chalkboard paint. I need to buy some ASAP.

I found your blog through Inspiration Friday.

What a fun idea for both you and the kids when they open their lunch box to see what message you've written for the day! Love it!

Perfect idea to personalize your messages each day. Just keep the chalk by your lunch supplies. I just pinned this on Pinterest. Found you on Sun Scholars. - I'm off to look at your Dr. Seuss post I just saw on your side bar. - I'm @obSEUSSed

This idea is awesome!!! I love a good chalkboard paint idea, and I even have a lunch box that I need to make cuter. Thanks for the inspiration!

Ahhh! This is so fun! I looooove it! Makes me sort of wish I had kids. ;)

Great idea! I try to send notes in my son's lunch too but often forget - this would definitely be a good reminder!! I would love for you to share this at my party, The Creative Spark, tomorrow night. I love quick and fun ideas like this!
