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 🙂
