DIY Chalkboard Talk Bubbles

Here is another idea we did for the Kirtsy Party at Blogher. The theme was “Voices of the Year” so the whole party was branded with talk bubbles. For the photobooth of course we did chalkboard talk bubbles that people could write in themselves and then get their picture taken. My sister Gabrielle, gets the credit for figuring out how to make them out of something other than wood. Here is the step by step for how we did it for about $12.

Materials: Black on Black Foam Core $5, Exacto Knife, Chalkboard Contact Paper $7, and Chalk

Step One: Separate the backing from the chalk board Contact paper and lay it onto the foam core smoothing out the bubbles.




Step Two: Draw the shapes of the talk bubbles onto the Foam Core with chalk.



Step Three: Cut them out with an Exacto Knife

Step Four: Write something on it, hold it above your head and take a picture!

    You can also just use the chalkboard paint directly onto foam core. It works like a charm. Did it for my wedding back in May.

    Приветствую! Вот тут нынче подумал – надо бы приобрести коллекция карандашей для своего чада – пусть развивается, рисует, творчеством вообщем занимается :) наткнулся для [url=http://orslon-nn.ru]интернет магазин детских канцтоваров[/url] – и заказал тут коллекция карандашей, фломастеров и ещё кучу только прикольного и полезного :) оказывается лупить некие витражные краски, я сам в этом вовсе не разбираюсь, однако будем рисковать, уловка вроде бы интересная) прогресс не стоит на месте и видимо он дошёл и перед детских красок, ныне они лопать разных видов, а не просто акварель и гуашь точно в нашем детстве.

  • Marnie says:

    While [url=http://www.fnlife.com]vacationing[/url] i n Southern Texas, I decided to take a hike down along the border this morning. I saw a Muslim [url=http://www.fnlife.com]extremist[/url] fall into the Rio Grande River; he was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying. Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large [url=http://www.fnlife.com]backpack of drugs[/url] that was strapped to his back. If they didn’t get help, they’d surely drown. Being a responsible person and abiding by the[url=http://www.fnlife.com] law[/url] to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security.
    It is now 4 pm, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded. I’m starting to think I [url=http://www.fnlife.com]wasted[/url] two stamps…

    PHP is a scripting language utilized by systems these as Linux, Windows and Unix to generate different types of world wide web pages. Installed into the html of a internet site, the PHP code utilizes a world wide web host server to work. Because of its widely accepted code, the sites use it for its compatibility. Well-known internet sites like Facebook and Wikipedia both have been developed utilizing the PHP Language.

    Compatibility: As talked about previously, PHP script demands a web host server to work. This signifies that the site utilizing this language have to have hosts on people servers that have a PHP processor module. In buy to opt for a world wide web host for you PHP primarily based websites, you will need to be totally guaranteed that the [url=http://webhostingreview.info/php-hosting/]hosting company supports PHP[/url].

    Bandwidth: If the bandwidth is smaller sized, likelihood are your web site will not perform as smoothly as you want it to run. But if the bandwidth is as well large, you may finish up wasting it if you do not need as significantly. Have a apparent strategy of the dimension and bandwidth that you seriously need to have ahead of acquiring a package.

    Uptime: For sites with PHP the uptime wants to be large. [url=http://webhostingreview.info/]Web hosting companies[/url] offering a large percentage of uptime are a considerably greater selection for [url=http://webhostingreview.info/php-hosting/]PHP hosting[/url].

    Open Database Connection: With the support of open database connections, PHP develops programs without making use of up as well a great deal browser sources. In advance of finalizing a net hosting corporation it must be seen how several open database connections are available.

    PHP Script Installer: In advance of signing the deal, it is critical to make certain the [url=http://webhostingreview.info/]hosting companies[/url] supplies a PHP script installer pack. This commonly comes along with the package deal and you do not have to pay additional for it.

    Email Accounts: Numerous [url=http://webhostingreview.info/]Web hosting companies[/url] charge excess for email accounts which can stretch the bandwidth really rapidly. On the other hand, if a organization delivers limitless electronic mail accounts for a minimal selling price, the deal may possibly be worth pondering above.

    Customer Help: It is crucial for each and every website hosting corporation to have a twenty 4 hour practical customer service to help clientele with any type of problems they might deal with. Customer enable lines, public discussion boards, FAQs and blogs all should be in straightforward reach of the clients.

    Compensated or no cost: Whilst free of charge PHP hosting it’s possible the obvious option for quite a few, in the prolonged run it may well not be the wisest. Cost-free hosting normally can cope with scaled-down a lot less hefty sites this sort of as particular blogs. They are not extremely safe and there is hardly any buyer assistance for it. Also commonly the internet site has to be heaped with loads of advertisements generating it more unsafe. In contrast, compensated PHP hosting is the smartest selection for heavy websites delivering far more protection and better efficiency.

    Dollars back again assure: Some firms in a bid to create superior purchaser relations have a 30 day funds back again ensure policy. In situation a customer is not satisfied or happy with the assistance, if he cancels his order in thirty days his funds will be refunded. Since these solutions price tag, there are not a lot of companies that provide them. Make confident your [url=http://webhostingreview.info/php-hosting/] PHP hosting company [/url] delivers you dollars back again guarantee as you could have to change in situation of unreliable solutions made available.
