Chalkboard Inspired Wrapping

I've seen this idea all over the place this year.  Chalkboard typography and printables are all the rage (and have been for a while), but I haven't been brave enough to paint a wall or a large surface in my home with chalkboard paint just yet.   I love the idea for Christmas wrapping.  All you need is some matte black wrapping paper (I ordered mine from Amazon), some white paint pens, and finally some inspiration for pictures, quotes an song lyrics.  You don't even need name tags because you can write the recipient's name right on the paper!!

Here are the ones I created for my family:  

I will say, it is a biiiiit time consuming, so I chose 4 family members that had gifts that could be wrapped in flat boxes.  My other gifts are wrapped in black and white houndstooth with black ribbon to match the black and white theme!

Merry Christmas and Happy Weekend all!
