Make It : Easy Valentines

Posted by

I was thrilled to try one of  Marvy's new craft products- Bistro Chalk Markers!   They offer two brilliant pinks in their collection, so I had to try them out on some Valentine cards.  This type of marker is typically used for dry erase boards, chalkboards, and window advertisements, but worked very well on paper too.  I used a bright pink marker on black card-stock to make some Valentine postcards.

They come in 15 colors, including white.

They can also be used to write a love note on your sweetheart's coffee cup, as the ink wipes off so easily.

Or write a sweet poem on a mirror or window?  What other uses can you think of?

  • I've always wondered--do these work on chalkboard paint, or is it too fragile to allow for washing them off?

  • These are great - they will be perfect for a cute message on a vase or flower pot too! Thanks for the idea!

  • I think I need to grab a few of these and dress up my daughters glasses every morning for breakfast. I think that would make for a smile all day.

  • Love the coffee cup idea. Although I would be worried my writing would come out horrible. But it looks really cute.

  • Wow. These are beautiful. I could have used those markers about ten years ago for a Valentine's card making extravaganza I had in college. ;)

  • You can also push down (not hard) and then remove pen and immediately blow on spot and make tie-die looking shapes.
